I think we all agree that Wisconsin has some work to do to balance the State budget, and we all will ( or should ) feel some pain.
So, it was interesting to note earlier this month that Citigroup reported that between 2002 and 2007, 65% of all income growth went to the top 1% of the US population.
It seems to me that this sector of the population should therefore be the first target for increased taxes to help balance the budget. Instead , our new Governor is aiming first at state employees.
Please join me in calling on Governor Walker to follow Mark Dayton’s example in Minnesota and tax the richest first.
