The county wise guys screwed up


In this morning's paper, we learn that the required taxpayer contribution to Milwaukee County's pension fund is three times the tax levy for the parks. In related news, we learned that both the City and County of Milwaukee continue to lose population.

Elliott points out that you need to hang on to taxpayers to continue collecting taxes. It's a shame that Ament and the public employee unions did not heed the advice of Christopher Moltisanti:

"When you're bleeding a guy you don't squeeze him dry right away. Contrarily, you let him do his bidding suavely. So you can bleed him next week and the week after ...."

I apologize in advance for some of the language folks will find in my post.

I think that's only the second time I've ever used the "f"-word online.

But the insanity of literally taxing a state to death (a state I love, by the way), makes me apoplectic.
