Kudos to Representative Robin Vos

In today’s Journal Times Rep. Vos does what he does best: he states things the way they are!

JT: Inauguration signals time to outline principles

Rep. Vos states “Last week, the governor requested a $1 trillion dollar bailout package. Transferring this amount of money from the feds to our state makes no sense. We will drive the federal budget further into the red with the hope that Wisconsin’s budget might run a little less in the red. Many elected officials will have you believe that it’s “free money,” but nothing could be further from the truth. Our grandchildren will be paying for that bill.”

Not only is Rep. Vos correct he shows just how out of sync the Democrats are on this issue.

“In late November, state Sen. Bob Jauch, D-Poplar, proposed a 5 percent sales tax increase because “everybody has to share the pain,” according to one Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article. In the same article, Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine, said he would be in favor of removing sales tax exemptions, claiming about the increase: “I can explain that to my constituents.” Just this week,
Gov. Doyle proposed to reinstate the annual automatic gas tax increase.”

Did you get that?!?! All of you that voted for “Change” are going to get just that…change in your pocket nothing more. The State (and Federal) Governments are going to tax us nearly to death (and then they will tax you again – remember Obama wants the “death tax” reinstated completely!) There will be no place to hide. They see these deficits and in stead of thinking about cutting the budget all they look at is how to increase their revenue to keep the spending there.

I don’t know about you but when my family is facing huge debts we cut our spending to afford just the necessities in life. Why is it that the Government thinks that they are more important than us? Why do they hurt those that fund them and then attempt to fix it by giving back only a portion of what they took?

Kudos to Rep. Vos for doing a terrific job as our elected representative for the 63rd Assembly District and for this:

“Wisconsin must not take the easy route by raising taxes to pay for the overspending of past budgets, we must now summon the political courage to do what’s right and bring our government back to a size we can afford.”

What more can be said.


Merry Christmas!!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

But don’t forget we have a lot of work to do here in Wisconsin…
