Is that so surprising?
Gov. Walker and the GOP-controlled state Legislature came up with an incredibly popular idea.
Remember a certain party condemned this rebate, calling it a gimmick and a re-election ploy.
What party would that be?
That would be the same party that has never supported any tax break for hard-working taxpayers.
I’m no longer in the journalistic field 24/7.
So given the news that we’re now less than a month away from the deadline to file for the $100 Wisconsin child tax rebate and more than 408,000 claims have been filed since May 15th, this would be a good assignment for an enterprising reporter anywhere in Wisconsin.
Check to see if any eligible elected officials for the rebate, say your state Assembly Representatives, state Senators, and I would include the Democratic candidates for Governor, submitted and claimed the credit. I don’t know of any Democrat that has come out in full blown support.
They’e entitled, of course. But I would love to see who stepped over the line on the Democratic side and acted hypocritically.
Think any reporter, anywhere , in this great big state will do that?
