Tea Party 2.0 Recap

Telephone Conference call with  Governors Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Rick Perry of Texas and the RGA.

SSI, Lack Of Understanding by Steve Kagen

From WOSH in Oshkosh.

by Jonathan Krause

Thursday, May 14, 2009
"I asked Congressman Steve Kagen about the Social Security insolvency "crisis" yesterday during his weekly conference call. He believes the only thing we need to do to fix SSI is to "get the economy going again so we can collect those taxes." That reveals a disturbing lack of understanding of the real problem with the Social Security system. Perhaps if we changed the name to reflect what it really is (a popular gimmick with the Obama White House)--the Federal Retirement Ponzi Scheme--then everyone would understand the underlying issues here."
My Two Cents: Social Insecurity

We need to give Jonathan credit for asking the question and seeing through Steve Kagen's empty, mindless dribble. Kagen's staff must of been missing  during his weekly conference call or they would not have let him answer a question with a STUPID comment like that! More ammo for the 2010 election. The guy is lost. He just wants to collect taxes. How much more can he take from us? Steve Kagen is talking about OUR TAX DOLLARS!

It is a disturbing lack of understanding by Steve Kagen but then will the rest of the MSM let the people of the 8th hear the real words of Steve Kagen?

Highly doubtful!

Milwaukee, Green Bay and Now St Paul, Poop Attack

"St. Paul under poop attack!
By Brian Lambert | Wednesday, May 13, 2009

John Brewer at the PiPress is all over pigeon poop. After a big chunk of rotted concrete fell off a parking ramp in downtown St. Paul, the city is getting its poop together to fight the flying rats. A proposal to set up feeders with fertility-blocking pellets is on the way. A test prior to the Republicans' visit last summer seemed to work. The downside? The feeders cost $500 and the building owners pick up that tab. How fast can you say, "Pigeon poop adverse health impact fee"?" MinnPost - Daily Glean: St. Paul under poop attack!

Voters of the 30th, delusions of grandeur? Should there be concern here? Who's at fault for Wisconsin's budget problems?

Two articles about Dave Hansen.

The first is from JSOnline.
What Dave Hansen voted for besides expansion of unemployment. I thought we have a deficit?
"Joint Finance OKs expansion of unemployment benefits

By Steven Walters And Patrick Marley

Posted: May. 12, 2009

Madison - Democratic legislators Tuesday inserted in the state budget a provision to allow 19,000 University of Wisconsin System faculty and staff to join unions, despite Republican warnings that it would be costly at a time when state government faces a record deficit.

In other action, the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee:

• Voted to make more out-of-work residents eligible for unemployment compensation, which would qualify state government for $89.3 million in federal stimulus money.

• Voted to hire 31 new tax agents and auditors to work on collecting a record $1 billion in unpaid taxes.

• Approved spending $44.5 million in federal stimulus money on 32 road and bridge projects. For years, UW faculty and staff have sought authorization to vote on joining unions. Republican legislators have blocked the move, but Democrats now control the Legislature for the first time in 14 years.

"It is something that is all about fairness," said Sen. Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay), who sponsored the change, which was added to the committee's version of the next budget on a 12-4 vote." Joint Finance OKs expansion of unemployment benefits - JSOnline

What Dave Hansen says about our budget problems from a letter to the Green Bay Press Gazette.
"Sen. Dave Hansen column: Published notices called 'subsidy'

By Dave Hansen • Guest commentary • May 13, 2009

Recently, the editorial board of the Green Bay Press-Gazette took me to task for voting to end a taxpayer subsidy to the Wisconsin State Journal. The payment is for the Wisconsin State Journal to publish official notices by the state." Sen. Dave Hansen column: Published notices called 'subsidy' | | Green Bay Press-Gazette

As the Press-Gazette knows, we are facing an unprecedented deficit of $6.6 billion resulting from the crisis brought on by the excessive greed on Wall Street. This crisis is forcing us to make deep cuts including important services that will be needed now more than ever to help area residents stay afloat.

So it's Wall Street's fault for Wisconsin's $6.6 billion budget deficit?

Dave Hansen, excuse me. What? Who's fault is it? What deep cuts have you made? Your spending our tax dollars and raising our taxes through the roof and it's not your fault. Mr Hansen was elected to represent us in Wisconsin. Looks like he is not doing the job he was elected to do! Who has excessive greed?

Time to elect someone else in the 30th District of Wisconsin.

Maybe some hard hitting reporting from the GB PG about the budget problems and Dave Hansen. Maybe? The voters of the 30th deserve it.

Any Press On This From The MSM?

From FoxPolitics.
Ellis & Cowles: Governor should start over on budget

With this week’s revised revenue estimates showing continued dramatic decline in state tax collections, the budget submitted earlier this year to the legislature is so out of balance that it should be returned to the governor for a complete revision.

Today, we are urging Senate Majority Leader Decker and Speaker Sheridan to return Assembly Bill 75 to Governor Doyle. The new revenue estimates reported this week by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau show such a drastically different picture that Governor Doyle’s original document is simply no longer operable.

The Legislative Fiscal Bureau reported that general fund revenue collections for the three years covering 2008-09 through 2010-11 are $1.6 billion less than the estimates used when the Governor built his budget. According to the Fiscal Bureau, with the new numbers the governor’s budget has a deficit of more than $800 million in the first year alone. The deficit will grow to $1.4 billion at the end of the biennium if the budget passed in its current form.

Bad budgeting practices that stretch over the past decade, coupled with a terrible economy state and nationwide have contributed to this problem. Things are not the same today as they were when the governor introduced his budget.

It is the governor’s duty to introduce a workable budget to the legislature. With a negative $1.4 billion ending balance, AB 75 is no longer a workable budget. It should be up to the governor to rewrite his budget in light of the new economic picture.

Mike Ellis is a Republican and serves the residents of the 19th Senate District. Rob Cowles is a Republican as well and serves the residents of the 2nd Senate District.
