Corporate Cronies get Payoff from WI GOP on Road Transportation Fixes - John Doe Pays

WisGOPs want everyday drivers to pay to fix Scottholes, but not their trucking buddies -

Jake's Wisconsin Funhouse

So people that drive light trucks every day are looking at a fee increase. But companies who have 4-5 ton dump trucks will GET THEIR FEES CUT, some by $55! And 18-wheelers won’t pay anything more than they do today, which removes a provision Evers had that would have raised their fees by 10%. 

I can't think of any reason to do this other than as payback for campaign contributions from the trucking and construction industries, and it causes a disgusting free ride for the business owners whose vehicles do the most damage to our roads. Oh, but it’s people that are on Medicaid that are the real “welfare” cases, right John Nygren?

So now I know ... Gov. Evers wanted to pay by "use" tax, i.e., raise gas tax!  Which do you think is fair?  Which lobbyists wrote the GOP proposal?

#SCOTUS Beware: DredScott, Plessy v. Ferguson, Roe v. Wade

The appointment of Brett Kavanaugh as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States for it's significance was so problematic.

The controversies of his accused behavior and the examples of the behavior of our President, who nominated him, toward women is beyond ironic.

...  that we now seem certain to see the Supreme Court reconsider Roe v. Wade.

During his testimony he was questioned again and again about "settled law".  Part of his various answer(s) was to hold up the "Dred Scott Supreme Court decision" as an example "settled law" that was justifiably reversed.

This was alarming because it means Kavanaugh will use "Dred Scott" as rationalizing justification for reversing "Roe v. Wade" - bad law

Said more bluntly "The Supreme Court took a man and made him into a slave."

What "right" will supersede a "women's right to privacy" under the "Due Process Clause" of  the 14th Amendment.
