On Vos says he’s open to tuition tax credits
If you, as a family, choose to send your children to a private school, then you are also choosing to pay for it. Private schools face none of the federal and state regulations for performance and standards, therefore should not be treated the same as public schools when it comes to giving families tax dollars to help them pay for their kids to go to the private schools.
On Wis. spends nearly $850K to defend union limits
Gov. Walker - Job Creator for lawyers statewide since 2011!
On Lawmakers consider restricting absentee voting
Key word: Restricting. That's all anyone reading this article needs to know.
On Walker’s income tax cut helps rich more
This is the perfect example of a tax cut for the sake of a tax cut. It will have no real affect on the economy of WI, which is what tax cuts are intended to do. That $106 per year will be barely noticeable, and definitely will not spur growth through spending. This tax cut is a sham to take the focus off the miriad of problems with the budget, like public education spending freeze extensions, cuts to Medicaid, and no plan for increasing transportation revenues. Wake up, WI!*I saw a projection yesterday that showed WI will have a $2.6 Billion real budget deficit at the end of the 2013-15 Bienium, largely due to this proposed budget.
On Walker proposes adding 710 government employees
Saving about $100 in income taxes per year does nothing for me. That's not even $10 per month. I'd rather not have that income tax cut and see that $343 million go to public schools and Medicaid funding to ensure nobody is dropped from coverage. This budget is ridiculous.
On Parkview School Board OKs borrowing $391,000 for iPad plan
n00b - I completely agree with you. I didn't see any discussion about recurring costs and upgrade costs for infrastructure in the schools. Installing a wireless system in a school that size could cost easily another $250k in order for access speeds to be consistent throughout. I'm not saying the move is right or wrong, as technology in schools is vitaly important, but the future costs of this implementation need to be considered as well as the up-front costs.*This district has done nothing but complain about a lack of money, so to enter into a project with a cost this high without proper research on long-term costs would be foolish.
On BTC may choose Milton to expand
This would be great for BTC and Milton. As long as there is demand for people trained in various aspects of manufacturin, this is a great expansion.*wtp...the main reason the aviation department was closed was because it was losing money due to a lack of interest in that field. It wasn't worth keeping open for only 6-10 students per program year.
On Panel suggests more taxes, fees, for drivers
This was a recommendation to Walker by a committee paid for and appointed by Walker. Obviously these aren't Walker's ideas...he's not sharp enough to come up with them on his own.
This must be more of those tools Walker's been talking about...Just another hit to the regular guy while corporations keep their huge tax incentives without having to actually create a single job in order to get those incentives! For someone living in Milton and working in Janesville that could add up to $10 a month in fees. All these tea party supporters want smaller and more limited government...How does this possibly limit the governemt? More fees, more monitoring, higher fuel costs.
