#CapTimes Opinion Page 4/27/16 - Schools (Rep Pope ), ALEC (Rep Taylor ), TaxBreaks (Rep Hesselbein )

Each of these WI Assembly Reps (Pope, Taylor, Hesselbein) took the time to write independent thoughtful "letters" to explain, largely using objective data, generated by the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB) about how "law" changes have really affected Wisconsin and its citizens.

As a disclaimer, you the reader should know, that several decades ago I worked at the LFB.

I may editorialize later but for now ask you to review the "letters" yourself and ask whether you think the consequences are what you like.

Rep. Sondy Pope: Cronyism seeps into Wisconsin schools

Rep. Chris Taylor: Meet Wisconsin's Solicitor ALEC, Misha Tseytlin

Rep. Dianne Hesselbein: The tax giveaway nobody talks about

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.

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.
