Deficit? Who Cares?? Not Milwaukee County

Milwaukee County responds to its $50 million deficit:

The Milwaukee County Board voted 13-5 late Thursday morning to allow domestic partnership benefits for county employees. As it stands now, benefits are only extended to families of people who are married.

Now that the measure has passed, and once it is signed by County Executive Chris Abele, health benefits would be extended to domestic partners, both gay and straight.

The measure will cost taxpayers an estimated $700,000....

Abele is also weeping and wailing that the provisions of Act 10 are already in play in the County's budget.
