Doyle's Tax Folly

He claims his budget, which assesses a 2.5% tax on gas companies, is a win-win for the state and its residents. Nearly everyone else (except the Journal Sentinal, the paper BP accuses of drifting waaayyy far right, and even they have their doubts) is confident it is a lose-lose, and maybe even unconstitutional. Who do I believe? Well, given the title of this post I don't think it is too hard to figure out-- I've seen too much Jim Doyle preening about non-existent tax freezes and "balanced" budgets that merely push the pain off for a few years to have any faith in the man's "vision".

But, at least he's being open about his efforts to tax us. Unlike the Dems in the U.S. Congress. I had hopes for a few months there that the new Congress would actually follow through on their promises of fiscal sanity. Oh, and it's Wisconsin's own David Obey leading the charge for obfuscation (what a great word).

I'm so proud.
