It is like the Democrats have uttered the "tax cuts for the rich" mantra for so long, they no longer recognize when they are hurting the middle class of Wisconsin.
When Governor Doyle finally showed some leadership and is now attempting to create incentives for businesses in Wisconsin, the Senate Democrats have already started their "tax cuts for the rich" mantra.
These statements out of the Senate Democrats are almost laughable, until you realize the destruction they will cause to Wisconsin's economy-
Senator Russ Decker-
Asked specifically about Doyle's plan to let some investors avoid taxes on capital gains if they plow the money back into state-based start-ups, Decker said, "We're very generous right now in the state of Wisconsin."
Perhaps Decker does not realize that he lives in one of the most highly taxed states in the nation. Not a whole of folks that languish as Wisconsin's upper, middle or lower class taxpayers that would accuse the state of being too generous!
Senator Bob Jauch-
Democratic Sen. Bob Jauch of Poplar, who heads the Senate Committee on Tax Fairness and Economic Prosperity, said Wisconsin has already handed out too many tax breaks to "specific groups or well-connected individuals."
Too many tax breaks????
Good grief! Once again, Wisconsin is one of the highest taxed states in the nation and this senate Democrat is stating that we give too many tax breaks.
Something that the Senate Democrats have yet to figure out- Without economic developement in this state, every single resident in Wisconsin loses out.
WE NEED JOBS HERE IN WISCONSIN IN ORDER TO SURVIVE. WE NEED BUSINESSES HERE IN WISCONSIN IN ORDER TO SURVIVE.
Senate Democrats are so intent on blocking any tax cut to the rich that they do not realize that they are damaging Wisconsin's middle and lower class workers!
