I have said numberous times that when someone tells you who they are, you should listen! Recently Rebecca Kleefisch had a secret "tax round table" discussion at Beloit College with local business 'leaders".
Rebecca, who basically let us know what to expect if she receives a second term, let us have the quote of the year:
"We want to know how we can love you more," Rebecca Kleefisch told the group of about 30 executives, managers, accountants and others during the 1-hour, 40-minute session.
As the inimitable Charles Pierce points out: Now Becky is not the brightest bulb in an admittedly dim chandelier, but she has to know better than to sound like someone at her first Bieber show in front of a bunch of CEO's. Nonetheless, she certainly will try to love them back.
The group of republican donors, were not shy. They let Becky know how she can be a good mistress to them---- Give them free money!!!
They said the state should do more to attract new businesses and help existing companies, loosen restrictions on tax credits, simplify the tax code, cut commercial property taxes, consider lowering income and property taxes while increasing the sales tax, and issue more business loans that don't need to be paid back in some circumstances.
