The Tennessee Tax Cut

By Jeff Simpson

We brought you the story of who was truly carrying water for Scott Walker, the elected Democrats.  Then we also showed you how easy it was to take an issue that Scott Walker loses in and turn it into an easily understandable story about gumballs.

Now we find out that while we get to share a gumball weekly, our friends in Tennesee get a whole Gumball truckload thanks to Scott Walker and Democrats who gave him cover!

While most Wisconsin taxpayers will see a cut of pennies to a whopping $13.00 this year, all while burdening the Wisconsin Taxpayers with more future debt and a larger structural deficit.

The best part though is whole Scott Walker is giving you an $.08 pay cut this year, he is giving his friends in Tennessee $18,000.

 And CBL Properties of Chattanooga, Tenn., owner of East Towne and West Towne malls, will enjoy an $18,000 savings. Each mall is assessed for about $81 million, according to city tax records, with the owners paying almost $4 million total in property taxes last year.
Nothing says "create" jobs in WI, like sending an $18,000 check to TN.  I wonder how much the rent at East Towne and West Town will come down now?  Or what kind of sale the stores will run to help spark the economy because of this "tax cut"?

Or will CBL properties just add it into their bottom line and bonus the CEO because of improved profitability?
