Jim Doyle is once again showing his lack of leadership and his intent to destroy life as we know it here in Wisconsin. His proposed new spending is causing his need to raise taxes again in Wisconsin. Having spent the last six months trying to put together a budget for the state, the governor and the Legislature have failed at putting together a good budget. Now only six months after putting together a budget, new tax increases are being proposed to fill in the shortfall created just last year.
Last month's job losses were among the largest in the country here in Wisconsin. And what is Governor Doyle doing to make the state more business family so that more businesses will want to expand and bring more jobs here in Wisconsin? He's raising taxes. While most of last year, the Legislature wasted month after month trying to piece together a budget that would hold the line on taxes, improve quality of life, and increase spending. I don't have to be the first one to tell you that they failed. Jim Doyle is once again trying to push through a tax bill that will raise taxes through hospitals. If America elects a Democrat in the fall, with socialized healthcare, this will be the largest expenditure by the government.
Then, Jim Doyle wants to take money out of the transportation fund in order to pay general expenditures. This tells us two things. Number one, taxes are too high on gasoline, the registration fee is too high, all other fees associated with the car are way too high. Number two, there is not enough expenditures being done on the roads. In the same way that George Bush does not know that gasoline has reached four dollars per gallon, Jim Doyle does not know that the roads in Wisconsin need repair.Jim Doyle is proud to bring about new programs that spend tax money that has been shown not to be there. When the budget does not balance, he blames Republicans. Will Republicans are to blame as well as the Democrats because instead of working on legislation that will balance the budget without increasing taxes and finding ways on how to ethically spend taxpayer money, what does the Legislature do? They pass a meaningless bill to honor Brett Favre. Well, Brett Favre has earned his accolades, but taxpayers deserve a little respect also. They are the ones that Jim Doyle wants to pick their pocket and think he's doing you a favor.
