Ghost of Wisconsin Yet To Come

By Jeff Simpson

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.

What speaks more to free market capitalism than big donors getting massive government loans that do not need to be paid back?  

Particularly brazen was Scott "Blinky Mcblinkerson" Bianchini who wants more than just some love from Rebecca:
 ABC's tax director, Scott Bianchini, said the state should stop disclosing how much residents pay in taxes, saying the information is used for "sabotage." Contacted Thursday, he wouldn't say if he was referring to 2012 newspaper reports indicating Hendricks paid no taxes in 2010 because of a change in her company's structure.
When you pay no taxes, its best not to let the plebes know!   Besides if they had to pay taxes, it might curtail their political donations!  With no political donations, then you can not get in on the ground floor of the Governor's strategy: 

The sad thing though, like so many dysfunctional relationships, as much as Rebecca and her friend Scotty LOVE their donors, their donors are not returning the love.     

Then, even more headshaking, was Kory Stoehr, of the McGladrey accounting and consulting company.  He said the problem is we aren't giving helicopter rides to CEO's.  That will make everything better!

Kory Stoehr, of the McGladrey accounting and consulting company, said his clients complain that state auditors disallow research tax credits, and they tell him what other states are doing to recruit new investment.
“(Company executives) are being flown around in helicopters, just luxurious stuff, and they were given millions in tax incentives,” Stoehr said.

Apparently no one told Kory about the unlimited supply of I-tunes gift cards and Wisconsin Badger tickets!  

Now back to the original, here is a picture of Becky and Mr. Bianchini hving an exchange.   He is asking for free money and Mrs. Lieutenant Governor has absolutely NO idea what he is talking about so she spouts some garbledy gook about the problems of WEDC.
Re-elect the Walker/Kleefisch ticket in November and this will be your tax policy.  A greedy corporate exec telling rebecca how much more taxpayer money he wants and a Lieutenant Governor smiling and waving!  
The Ghost Of Wisconsin Yet To Come has visited us in our sleep.....Now it is time to wake up and change the ending! 





  1. I might be wrong but is Becky saying..."I'm from the Government and I'm here to help"? One has to wonder, what Walkers hero Regan would say about that? The silly season is upon us!!

  2. Blogging Blue and Blue Wisconsin are Koch subsides nothing more. zach now admits ok I must be is a dirty republican. That Koch money buys them all.
    Wisconsin does not stand a chance with many fake democrats in the democratic party and even the blogs like Blogging Blue and blue Wisconsin our now know for being operated by a admitted Koch Industries worker Zach Wisniewski a fake liberal reporter who admits he is republican. Blogging Blue is known as one of the states leading progressive blogs. Zach has out right admitted he is a republican. In the blogging blue post about his pal and fellow accomplice as he admits OK I am a REPUBLICAN. I can email you his admission also. He is a fake democrat.
    He admits he does not support liberal causes. He writes generalizations and refuses complete stories and facts in those sites. Zach like Fox gets his fake 1/2 stories in most liberal blogs in the state. He puts out several 1/2 to 1/8 stories per day so his propaganda lies are doing great damage in the state. This is more misleading than FOX. These sites have done great harm to the democratic party in Wisconsin. To the people of Wisconsin. To the millions of women and children his misleading stories have hurt. The seniors too. Republicans like ZACH have no heart. The 939 nuns said it best about Zachs and Walkers type. Like Fox news only giving the republican take or 1/2 story so the republicans look better. Like now Zach is bragging about Walkers surplus by making the teachers pay more. The numbers show it is money walker took from peter to pay paul. Like millions from the mortgage settlement walker stole from the victims who it rightfully belonged too. Walker admitted that ACT 10 never saved the state a dime under oath. The minute he lied to congress and the GOP gave him his above ALL LAW stamp. Walker has decided lying is the only way to win. Media will not expose me anyway. Blogging Blue and these type fact liberal blogs will also lie for Walker. Walker says My God/Owner David Koch will not allow his media outlets to contradict his lies. This has allowed Blogging Blue and Blue Wisconsin to hide real truths about all the damage Walker has done. Blogging Blue is a Koch / walker propaganda sheet nothing more, If not they would allow some TRUTH in this Blog. Just expose the damage of Walkers truth in sentencing that forced the state to hire 32,000 UNION public sector workers since 1997 thanks to Walker. This has cost the taxpayers 100 billion plus building 71 new courthouse and 71 new county jails and the judges, das, police, and guards, all the extra`s salaries for the last 15 years. Then the state had to hire 32,000 public sector workers in the justice system. Zach from blogging blue and blue Wisconsin owes Walker for his job because of this. This is why he is a fake democrat helping Walker his HERO. Zach admits this in a email. ALEC is involved in everything. We have Rush saying anything he wants and Zach making fun of the Rush`s type fooling the liberals and not addressing the real crimes of Walker regime.
