Glenn Grothman: Wrong about Taxes too.

Hi folks,

If nothing else, Glenn loves to cut taxes, whether it's a good idea or not. He's like a 4 year old swinging a machete. He doesn't always know what to cut, just that he likes it -- a behavior reinforced by rich uncles who give him a lollypop every time he hacks up another watermelon in the neighbor's garden.

As this story from the Bill Christofferson's Xoff Files points out, citing the Milwaukee Journal and a recent study by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute [usually a dark-neo-con blinktank], those service-cutting loonies in Madison just cost us $100 million dollars.

If this keeps up, how many more important services and programs will these knee-jerk neo-cons cost the state? (like new teachers say, or sewers! or better water quality! or farmland protection for farmers and habitat protection for hunters and fishermen!) I suppose that if I were in the top 1% of the money in this state, I'd appreciate Glenn cutting my taxes too -- but I don't see that happening any time soon. :^)

Anyway, please click here to have a look at this report from Bill Christofferson at The Xoff Files.

Tax cuts only good if they help the rich?
