TO THE EDITOR:
Wisconsin Republicans in office say that they are going to give the people of Wisconsin a big property tax cut, raise job levels and bring back Wisconsin’s economy.
While the Republican Party wants you to think that they are working for your benefit, Republicans are fighting for every last scrap to help them for the upcoming elections to maintain party-line voting.
Meanwhile thousands of citizens are struggling.
Did you know that a typical homeowner’s property tax will actually rise in 2015? And yet the state of Wisconsin will be facing yet another half-billion-dollar deficit shortfall once again?
This because of the tax cuts that our Republican brain trust wants to give back as a “gift.”
They are doing this with intentions to make themselves look good for re-election.
Yes, this state will be back into the red even after Walker’s so-called brilliant plan was going to make things better for our state. ...
It has been almost three years since Scott Walker has taken office and almost three years of faulty economic plans and lies.
... People, wake up and smell the reek of inability to lead! Three years of Scotty’s leadership and absolutely nothing to show for it.
Scott Walker and the Republican gang are failing the state of Wisconsin. How much more proof do you need?
