Tommy Can't Quit 'Em--the Taxes, That Is

Hovde noted a Tommy-ism:

At a U.S. Senate candidate forum earlier this week, Governor Tommy Thompson was asked about government spending.

His response?


...Just minutes later in a classic example of political double speak from a Washington insider, Governor Thompson claimed he had never advocated for a fee on drilling but instead wanted a permitting process.

Or maybe Tommy forgot that Big Oil is already taxed (fee-ed) for every damn thing they do.

Just like residents of SE Wisconsin, who are paying for Selig's playground to this very day.

I supported and would continue to support if I still lived in the Milwaukee area, the tax to fund Miller Park. I think the stadium has brought in more people from out of county and it has helped the economy in and around the stadium and surrounding areas. I'm not sure if the other counties besides Milwaukee have benefited as much as Milwaukee has.
But the area, in general, has benefited from Selig's playground.

Send a $10,000.00 contribution, Dan.

You can demonstrate, of course, that the playground has benefitted the area, right? (Aside from the capgains for Selig and the other investors.)

Less than? Equal to? More than? the tax-burden?

Why should the public have to pay for a new stadium for a privately owned team?

I don't go to these stadiums, I do not want to pay for them at all. I do not worship professional spots athletes.

Take your professional sports and stick it where the sun does not shine. We have had enough and we the tea party are getting rid of thieving, big government loving politicians like Tommy.

No Mas Senor.

But Tommy has been in secret talks with "business people" who have told him they're just waiting until Walker survives the recall to spend, spend, spend on hiring, acquisitions, inventory expansion, and everything! So, shouldn't we vote for Tommy to be our senator because he knows all these secret things and could do the same thing in Warshington????

Tommy Thompson: Champion Of Obamacare
Listen to Video where Obozo proudly notes Tommy's support for Obamacare?

Conservative credentials? Limmited Government?
Lower taxes?

" Tommy Thompson: Champion Of Obamacare"

In the words of Obama which you can listen to in the video ( with Teleprompter of course)

.................[W]hat’s remarkable is not that we’ve had a spirited debate about health insurance reform, but the unprecedented consensus that has come together behind it. This consensus encompasses everyone from doctors and nurses to hospitals and drug manufacturers.

And earlier this week, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg came out in support of reform, joining two former Republican Senate Majority Leaders: Bob Dole and Dr. Bill Frist, himself a cardiac surgeon. Dr. Louis Sullivan, Secretary of Health and Human Services under President George H.W. Bush, supports reform. As does Republican Tommy Thompson, a former Wisconsin governor and Secretary of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush. These distinguished leaders understand that health insurance reform isn’t a Democratic issue or a Republican issue, but an American issue that demands a solution............

Kathleen Sebelius for Tommy Thompson?
***You decide****

.....In June 2010, Kathleen Sebelius wrote on the White House website:

I was pleased to join my colleague Nancy-Ann DeParle, who is overseeing health care implementation on behalf of the President, in hosting former Senate majority Leader Tom Daschle, former HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson, and Dr. Mark McClellan, former CMS Administrator and former FDA Commissioner, at the Department today. They offered some great ideas about implementation and outreach, suggestions about strategies to make sure that the Affordable Care Act is successful, and I will continue to draw on their experience in the months ahead...........

Here are four articles documenting significant events of a Scandalous Catholic Politician who likes to endorse other politicians of the ruling class.....

Hypocrite Rudy endorse Newt over Romney & it was the kiss of Death to Newt.

Pro Gay Right Rudy promised as NY Mayor to officiate a same-sex wedding then backed out of it at last minute.

Pro-abortion Catholic Rudy agrees to refrain from communion then publically broke promise at mass officiated by Pope

“Archbishop Burke Right to Deny Communion to Giuliani” Rudy Giuliani’s three decades of support for abortion.

Now we see this article from the pro Obama Huffington post..........

Rudy Giuliani Endorses Tommy Thompson In Wisconsin Senate Race

Hmmm, Lets hope that Rudy's kiss of Death, is the same type of Kiss of Death he gave to Newt Gingrich.

We know that Tommy Thompson is a Champion Of Obamacare. Lets look deeper into the type of new taxes and big government that Tommy like and the problem with them and why its important to utterly defeat and send Tommy into retirement this election cycle.

In order to do this I will link to two articles.

1. The Mental Disease Called Liberalism (Health Reform, and yes he is somewhat biased against Catholics.)

2. The Truth about Healthcare Reform
