A friend from WaxingAmerica dropped this link bye -- I think to make me feel better about being represented in Wisconsin's 20th Senate district by Mr. Grothman.
I confess, this helps a lot.
Hard to know even how to file this, except circularly.
Taxation without representation.
I note that the Washington DC, largely Republican, wrecking crew is already complaining about their taxes going up -- even though 95% of the rest of us are going to get a tax break this year. Apparently, the same thing is happening in Madison, with the Gov. restoring old and perfectly workable tax rates on the top earners.
What's interesting to me is that Mr. Pridemore, like Mr. Grothman, as state employees, make about what *I* do, except they get to hold outside jobs that raise their net income... maybe if they paid taxes like the rest of us do, they'd be more sympathetic to the idea of a government providing services none of us in the bottom 95% can afford on our own?
