    You have a great point.

    The Democrat's favorite tactic against their political opponents is to dig up as much dirt as they can and then blow it all out of proportion and spin it till their opponent loses. The fact that they are going with this insignificant tax thing shows that they are scraping the bottom of the barrel...and they still have more than a year and a half to go.

    Now, I'm not a Republican so I don't have a say in who they nominate, but it sure does look like Walker might be their best choice right now. I'm thinking Hillary would be toast if she has to run against him.

    Sounds to me like it's a common tactic in that State and it's been used by Democrats as well as Republicans without a big deal being made of it...until now, of course. Now that Walker is running for President.

    Besides...liberals/progressives/Democrats haven't much room to talk...at least when you consider that, on the national level, they are more inclined to increase taxes AND increase the deficit.

    It's a more logical motive to cut taxes than the argument that tax cuts create more revenue.

This harms the middle class.
    I thought every taxpayer got money back, not just the wealthy.

    I don't understand why you care so much about what a governor is doing in a state you don't live in. The people there are happy - does that bother you?
