Trump Train To Smack Wisconsin Taxpayers

Not only does The Donald intend to spend a $Zillion or so buying public-works stuff.

The House Pubbies intend to slam Wisconsin taxpayers into the ground.

House Republicans are moving ahead with a plan to eliminate deductions for state and local taxes in the new federal tax code...Kevin Brady (R-Texas), said Tuesday that he’s working closely with the White House on a plan that to create three federal tax brackets — 12, 25 and 33 percent....

Whatever Federal yadayada.  Wisconsin has a problem.  Wisconsin likes to take LOTS of income- and property-taxes from its residents.

There is a solution, of course:

...The odds are pretty good that those living in tax-and-spend states such as New York, California, etc. would be very, very unhappy to experience the full magnitude of those states' punitive taxes.  They'd probably launch loud, vociferous campaigns to change their politicians' habits - or change their politicians altogether....

 IIRC, Gov. Walker has proposed a "Christmas Tree" spend-a-bunch-of-money budget.  Maybe the Leggies should start with a meat-axe, eh?
