Herbert Hoover Walker, the Man Who Would Be Governor, wants to stick it to Milwaukee.
Trouble is, Walker is the Milwaukee County executive, not some two-bit political hack from Elroy, as one of his GOP opponents once called Tommy "Stick it to 'em" Thompson.
Walker's already said county taxpayers shouldn't pay for programs that only help the city of Milwaukee.
In the name of holding the line on property taxes, he's decimated public services in the county, with deteriorating parks, and a bus system being purposely killed by neglect, just to cite the top of the list.
He's vetoed an attempt to ask county voters whether they would favor a half per cent sales tax to reduce property taxes and fill some of the county's financial hole.
Now he's turned his back on potential federal economic stimulus money, too.
The Journal Sentinel reports:
The only federal economic stimuli Walker endorses are tax cuts...
"The last thing you want to do is put money in hands of government," if the goal is to pull the economy from recession, Walker said.
