What hath Walker Reaped ... Why?
I don't doubt plenty of people have trouble, especially in rural areas, paying their property tax bill. That is a problem the "Homestead Tax Credit" was designed to alleviate in Wisconsin - does it need expansion? Many rural areas also lack social infrastructure as well as physical infrastructure.
As I understand it the WI Budget, as just passed (9/2017) has further reduced the "Homestead Tax Credit". The wisdom of the WI Governor and GOP controlled legislature is astounding. This act so clearly demonstrates the misuse and disconnect that "resentment" hath wrought,
Why would a family with children want to move to or live in a place with no schools and little immediate access to health care. Why would a retired person want to live there either - they may be stuck and getting to a doctor is really a major problem? Why would someone growing up there, spending most of their time being bused to school, want to stay there when they can't get a job later; when they can go to a larger community get a job, meet other people their age, and have more of a social life?
Wisconsin Self-Insurance is likely to decimate healthcare alternatives for all citizens in rural areas.
