Least Surprising Headline Of The Walker Era

(updated Wed., 11:00 p.m. from Tuesday, 9:30
Even less surprising than headlines about coordinated Walker/GOP Legislative attacks on public employees, voting rights, transit and rail systems, wetlands preservation, well-water withdrawal controls, scientifically-significant rivers and streams, Native treaties, health care for the poor, jobless benefits, air pollution warning notification, shore land and construction site erosion controls, frac sand mine monitoring, women's reproductive services, wind farms, public education budgets, ownership of publicly-paid state assets, local residency ordinances, tax credits for the working poor - - and more  - - is what is at the top of this story:

Wealthy earners would save most in $450 million tax cut
The plan also collapses income tax brackets and the entire theory of progressive taxation by putting those earning as little as $14,500 and as much as $319,000 into the same percentage payment.

When the wealthy pay most of the taxes, it is very difficult to have a tax cut where they don't receive the biggest share.

This is 2nd grade math.

But then again, the democrat philosophy is to allow people to keep more of other people's money.

Also, could you explain again the "attack on public employees?"

Everyone but the socialists missed that one.

Go read up on the marginal utility of money before spouting off your instinctive responses. There's even a parable in the Bible that explains it.

And reducing the take-home pay, working conditions, and ability to negotiate them is nothing but an attack on public employees.

Oh, right, employees should be completely subservient to their employers, who will only ever have their employees' best interests in mind.

Rickie Weeks is batting around .180 for a salary of $10 million in 2013... sure, sounds like a great candidate for a tax cut.

Why people in WI want to cut taxes for millionaires is beyond me.

Tell that to the school teachers.

Tell that to the school teachers.

As I said... Everyone but the socialists missed that one.

You can't give a tax cut to someone who doesn't pay taxes... go figure.

Besides, he doesn't pay all that to Wisconsin, he pays based on where the games are played.
