Scott Walker will do for the State of Wisconsin what he did for the County of Milwaukee. He is the first Milwaukee County executive who stood up to the unions & the county board.

[QUOTE who="Reggie R."]Scott Walker is the lesser of two evils. As a Republican, I'm worried about his run. This is largely due to the fact that the Milwaukee County Government is going bankrupt under his watch. He can, rightly, blame the County Board all day - but do we really want a Governor who blames the Legislature for all of the States problems. I'll vote for the sniveling Milwaukee Exec - but only because Barrett is worse.[/QUOTE]Just what is his job,I've never heard of a county Chief Exec. In the rural county I'm from we have a county board chairman,is that what he is? In my rural county thats just a part time job.

As a general matter, everybody is affected, maybe except for certain seniors," said Chuck Marr, director of federal tax policy for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. "All taxpayers have something at stake."

For the family of four bringing in a combined income of $75,000, the expiration of all Bush-era tax cuts will amount to a tax increase of $2,143 next year, according to the Tax Foundation's 2011 Income Tax Calculator.

A family of four earning $150,000 would see its income tax burden increase by $4,510 to $23,150, according to the Tax Foundation.

Single filers, meanwhile, would see their taxes rise by $605 at the $50,000 income plateau and by $1,355 at $75,000. A single filer earning $150,000, including $15,000 in long-term capital gains, would pay an extra $3,269, with a total tax liability of $28,340.

A single parent of one child earning $25,000 would see his tax liability rise by $955, decreasing his tax refund of $1,856 to just more than $900. A low-income family of five earning a total of $45,000 would see their taxes increase by $2,538, equating to a total tax liability of $1,028.

An upper-middle income family of four with two earners pulling in $150,000, including $15,000 in long-term capital gains, would see their taxes increase by $3,802. That family's total tax burden? Roughly $21,600.

A high-income family of four, meanwhile, with a combined income of $300,000 and $20,000 in itemized deductions, would see their taxes jump by more than $11,000 if Congress allows all of the Bush-era tax cuts to expire. That equals a total tax liability of $68,392.

Not everyone is against investing in jobs and greater access to jobs through high speed rail. A lot of people are hurting for work in Wisconsin.

Every year in Chicago, they have a dooms day scenario where they threaten to shut public transportation down--because they have no money-and really how can a business that takes in millions of dollars a day run out of money-well here it is because the Unions pay for every Tom dick and Harry to retire with full benefits, and they make more that the average Joe Worker, it is full of patronage, and not a feasibe business--all the while raising fares for the poor instead of cutting the fat. Another Democrat run into the ground program. We do not want rail in Wisconsin. We want jobs.

If there are no jobs-how is it that you can pay for the high speed rail-and where the hell is it going to go? Chicago?
