Taxpayer Protection Amendment Exhibit 2

Scott Walker says someone needs to bail out Milwaukee County. Tom Ament and his bunch literally destroyed Milwaukee County government while no was watching. Its easy to promise to pay money in the future. This is one of the reasons that public employee pensions are so indescribably rich. When the bill comes due, the pols are gone. Much of this stuff can't be undone.

This not only burdens the taxpayer but eviscerates the government as an entity that can do anyone any good. Do you think Milwaukee County should do more to help poor residents or spruce up its parks? It can't. It has to pay people who don't work for it anymore.
