Wisconsin's New State Budget... Everyone Loses with this one.
October 24, 2007 3:57pm CST
Well, it was 119 days late, but the Wisconsin State Government has agreed on a budget for the next two years. Governor Doyle and the Democrats didn't get their $15 billion dollars in tax increases. The Republicans caved and allowed for almost $800 million in tax and fee increases, and loads of wasteful pork. The Taxpayers. While this new budget won't put us up to the #1 taxed state in the nation, it also doesn't help us at all. All it does is let the politicians keep on spending with no thought of how wasteful they are. No one wins here... Which is usually the case when decisions were made based on lies. What is sad is, the incompetent press knows about the lies, but has chosen to perpetuate them instead of expose them.

Well, I am sure sorry to hear about this. The losers are the taxpayers whose money will be wasted even more. The liberal press does not care about the truth... if they did they would be condemning this, and would have made sure the truth was told in the beginning.

Not only is the incompetent press not condemning it, they are praising the legislature for "bipartisan compromise". In other words, they are knowingly supporting the lie that the state of Wisconsin is running without a budget. If there is ONE person in journalism that still has ANY integrity, I wish they would make themselves known.
