In an effort to avoid those pesky questions about the John Doe investigations and the document drop from last week, Scott Walker did the political equivalent of yelling, "Squirrel!" when he made a campaign pledge to hold property taxes " in check." However, he won't say how he would do it, either by raising other taxes and fees, slashing services and/or increasing the deficit by a few more billion dollars.
But lest we forget, the last campaign pledge Walker made was to create 250,000 jobs by the end of his term. Right now, with ten months left in his term, he has created about 20% of that goal - even less if you subtract the jobs created by Governor Jim Doyle's budget and policies.
Given Walker's phenomenally high level of failure regarding his first campaign pledge, I reckon that property taxes could quadruple, at least, if Walker were elected for a second term.
