We interrupt your weekend to announce that today is Tax Freedom Day in Wisconsin.
The Tax Foundation’s Tax Freedom Day in the nation was yesterday. Gov. Scott Walker sent out an email about that to his supporters yesterday … not today, which would highlight the continued fact that federal and state taxes in Wisconsin are higher than the national average. (And that Tax Freedom Day is three days later in Wisconsin this year.)
And what are we Wisconsinites getting for our tax dollar? Milwaukee dropping below Detroit in social dysfunction Hell, for one thing. Harassment of conservatives by the Internal Revenue Service and the Milwaukee County district attorney, for another.
