I wish Lena Taylor would stop sending her campaign literature to me. She doesn't have anything forr me to convince me to cast a vote for her. She only says that she is a tax-and-spend liberal. I already know that she is going to waste more money and push for the highest taxes ever imagined in Milwaukee County history. How she expects people to believe her cozenage, I don't know.
In her own literature, she speaks about how she will make use of untapped resources. Translation: higher taxes. It goes on: by identifying how to invest our dollars... translation: she is going to be spending money like crazy. Also in the pamphlet, it says that her relationship with the Democratic Party will help her explore and maximize available funds. Translation: she is going to bully everybody into raising taxes.
Among her supporters is a huge list of tax-and-spend liberals. I'm not surprised. Tom Barrett, who has no vision for the city of Milwaukee, also wants the rest of the county to go downhill. He looks at Detroit and views it as a model city. Once the tech space is completely eroded, where will the money come from to pay for all of these expanded wasteful programs? Gwen Moore is a supporter. Casting her support to a candidate was her biggest accomplishment since going to congress. Herb Kohl is a supporter. No surprise. He's more concerned about his basketball team than he is the state of Wisconsin. 20 years of his Senate record proves that. He's nobody's Senator. Russ Feingold is a supporter. No surprise. He also has a Senate record that returns no federal dollars to the State of Wisconsin. Feingold has shown no evidence of a spine in his last two terms. How will that help the county? He too is nobody's Senator. Jim Doyle is a supporter. Again, no surprise. He himself was ostensibly awestruck with some one who would raise taxes higher, spend more public funds and mismanage the office more than ol' Jimmy D.
In her campaign literature, Taylor also claims that revenues are consistently overestimated. Well I guess we know how she will fix that-higher taxes. She also makes issue of how much Scott Walker will return of his salary. It's going down to $10,000 per year. Yet Taylor will not return a dime. She wants to spend everybody else's money but keep her own. How generous! How stingy compared to Walker.
Yes, government should provide what the private sector cannot. However, responsible government cannot just focus on expanding expenditures. There has to be some responsibility towards the taxpayer. I found nothing that claimed taxpayer responsibility in this literature. The next piece should be printed on Charmin, so that I can put it to a better use.
