Democrats: Better On Taxes

Some interesting facts from a Bruce Murphy April 2010 post:
  • Wisconsin's total tax burden is lower than it has been since 1962
  • Wisconsin ranks 26th in total spending and 19th in total taxes and fees
  • When taking Federal aid into account, Wisconsin's total spending ranks 32nd
  • When only taxes and not fees are considered, Wisconsin ranks 14th
  • Wisconsin has ranked comparatively low in total business taxes ever since the 1970s
  • Governor Doyle has been considerably more frugal than Tommy Thompson (Scott Walker voted for all of Thompson's budgets)
