During an appearance in Milwaukee today, Governor Doyle discussed Wisconsin’s budget crisis, saying everything’s on the chopping block, including shared revenue to local units of government.
When former Governor Scott McCallum proposed phasing out shared revenue to address a state budget crunch earlier this decade, it was his death knell. Democrats called for his head. They played the usual fear card of liberals that men, women, children, and pets would die in the streets without shared revenue.
Will hypocrite liberals react the same way if Doyle keeps talking about cutting shared revenue? Please…
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s response today was that the city would push for a big sales tax increase if the state cuts aid to the city.
McCallum suggests shared revenue cuts…...BAD!
Doyle makes the same suggestion………….TAX INCREASE!
I hesitate to use the descriptive words, “best” or “ultimate” or “awesome” that are highly subjective.
