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.
