Silliness from Walker's Office

Really, Governor? 

Gov. Scott Walker is not saying whether he favors or opposes the so-called Marketplace Fairness Act that passed the U.S. Senate earlier this month. The bill calls for internet retailers to collect sales tax just like their brick-and-mortar brethren do.

But [...] he does know what he would do with the estimated $95 million a year in extra tax revenue.

"I want to make clear, should federal marketplace legislation become law, my intention would be for any resulting additional revenue be used to provide individual income tax relief for Wisconsin's taxpayers," Walker said

You could do that by reducing the size of the overbloated UW System, or its fat sister, the State government.

Any progress on those, Governor??
