Dispute Continues Over Milwaukee Stimulus Money – WISN Milwaukee

Dispute Continues Over Milwaukee Stimulus Money – Milwaukee News Story – WISN Milwaukee.

Supervisor Weishan finally chimes in and what does he have to say? Nothing really. He’s predictably in favor of higher taxes. He obviously doesn’t understand what is in the federal stimulus bill and he somehow thinks that its going to lead to, “job creation that’s so desperately needed in the Milwaukee area.”

Please Mr. Weishan explain to us exactly how the federal government giving money to the county government is going to create jobs for Milwaukee. That money will undoubtedly come with strings attached, strings that will require local taxes to go up or cuts to be made in other areas. We all know you aren’t going to be in favor of cutting anything in the bloated county budget so that leaves you with your favorite option… Time to raise the taxes!

What we need are real jobs in Milwaukee. Real jobs from real employers with real budgets. What we certainly don’t need are more government jobs for government employees who will receive bloated government benefits, excessive government pensions and guaranteed job security all at the taxpayer’s expense. The way to get those real jobs is to give a tax cut to the people who pay taxes.

Letting taxpayers keep more of their money is what will stimulate the economy. Letting business owners keep more of their money will let them expand their business, spend more on advertising or on whatever they feel will best suit their needs. An immediate cut in payroll taxes will relieve stressed family budgets nationwide which will create a ripple effect through the entire economy.

Funneling money through Wasington D.C. won’t lead to any lasting economic stimulus. Increasing our national debt by the biggest lump sum in history certainly won’t create any economic stimulus and it will act as an anchor on our economic growth for decades to come.
