Cynical Gov. Jim Doyle really doesn't believe that it would pay to devise a commuter rail service that would revolve around Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha does he, when there just aren't any jobs!

Just how many people are these businesses, Bucyrus International of Milwaukee and SC Johnson of Racine planning to hire, or are they just standing beside Gov. Jim Doyle for moral support? Kinda like when Barack Hussein Obama had physicians attend the White House dressed in white coats to make it seem like they all agreed with his socialized health care plan.

Gov. Doyle indicated that "the measure would be funded, in part, only by a half percent sales tax in Milwaukee." How much tax increase will Racine and Kenosha pay? Everyone knows government projects always ends up costing more.

Just exactly how many people does Gov. Jim Doyle envision would be able to afford riding the commuter rail, and just how many jobs does he imagine people will be commuting to everyday that would make it worth while?

If you saw the press conference, you would know that Bucyrus wants hire 500 more people, but says it will be hard if the transit situation is not improved.
Creating transit always creates jobs. Miller Beer moved its headquarters to Chicago. Why? Because they have better mass transit. We lost a lot of jobs to Chicagp because of that.

Are you kidding? And what, Bucyrus will only hire people that ride the transit? Its a waste of tax payers money. Also when dealing with the government it always ends up costing the tax payers more! We lost jobs to Illinois's not because people couldn't get to jobs but because Wisconsin taxes blew the jobs right out of the state.
