CPoW Stands for Real Tax Relief

Governor Scott Walker said the recently passed state budget “provides nearly $1 billion in tax reliefs for Wisconsin families.”

The Republican Party of Wisconsin (GOP-WI) may provide tax cuts, but like Democrats, will not give us a brand new tax code sans a tax on incomes and a state property tax. The GOP-WI’s own preamble and platform, found at wisgop.org/our-party/republican-party-of-wisconsin-platform, proves they don’t advocate the abolition of the punitive tax on incomes as the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) does. The GOP-WI platform says in part:

Taxes – We believe the federal income tax system is unfair and cumbersome. We believe the tax code should be simplified and without exceptions.

Therefore, we favor the option of a single simplified tax rate that closes the loopholes that some corporations use to pay less in taxes. This plan will make America the most attractive place for businesses that provide good paying jobs. (Underline emphasis added).

We in the Constitution Party know exactly why the GOP-WI won’t totally commit to writing a brand new tax code. Wisconsin Democrats will cry, “More tax break for their rich friends and billionaire donors like the Koch brothers.” So the GOP-WI will provide just enough tax relief to keep conservatives voting Republican (a tax cut), but not give them the tax relief that will provide conservatives and other taxpayers relief for life (a brand new tax code).

The CPoW calls for nothing less than ending the progressive income tax and the state private property tax. Our platform on taxes, found athttp://wisconsinconstitutionparty.com/platform.php#61, says in part:

We, therefore, oppose all progressive taxes and any form of taxes on property, both real or personal, or on compensation paid for services rendered. (Underline and bold print emphasis added).

With a progressive tax code, the more wages one earns, the more taxes he/she will pay. This means that no one can ever save for their futures or get ahead that way. Also, no property owner(s) should live in constant fear of losing their homes or land because they cannot afford to pay state property taxes. The CPoW says the only way to help taxpayers permanently is by permanently ending progressive income taxes and the state tax on private property. There are other ways to fund state—and local—government, which we propose again at http://wisconsinconstitutionparty.com/platform.php#61.

We appreciate the much-needed tax relief, but it’s far from a permanent fix. We call on the electorate to vote for the Constitution Party candidate in your next election. If you want true change, the Constitution Party is your only option.

    Scott Walker remembers creating jobs as assemblyman in Wisconsin . It was easy with ALEC. 32000 UNION public sector jobs. It is not as easy this time with out using your tax dollars. Scott Walker has created ALL Wisconsin`s budget problems working for ALEC. In 1997 Walker and Prosser as state assemblymen championed for ALEC with truth in sentencing telling the legislatures it would not cost a dime it was to give judges not parole boards the control over sentencing. Then Walker filibustered to stop sentencing changes after the fact misleading ALL the legislatures. With out the sentencing changes Wisconsin`s prisons quadrupled over night. Most people sentenced to 2 years now had to serve as much as 6o years. As the Wisconsin Budget watch Blog shows . Stopping just a percentage of these long sentences Wisconsin would save 707 million per year. Wisconsin could have free tuition colleges. It shows Wisconsin has wasted 200 billion if you add the numbers to the state budget since 1997. Not including the building new or remodeling of 71 courthouses & 71 county jails & 273 police stations and dozens of prisons 28 billion plus interest. The total is over 70 BILLION plus the 100 Billion spent by social services to support prisoners families because the bread winner was a political prisoner as US Att gen Eric Holder explained. Then farming out prisoners in several states until the courts realized it was not allowed in the Wisconsin constitution. Wisconsin then hired 32000 union public sector workers to fill the jobs housing the prisoners from deputies , judges, district attorneys all owe Walker for creating there jobs. 32000 UNION PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS. This cost taxpayers over 3.8 billion or a half million per day to house these EXTRA prisoners per day in Milwaukee county alone. Wisconsin claims it has 24,000 prisoners compared to Minnesota`s 5500. Wisconsin`s corrections population is 104,000 with over 28,000 prisons in Milwaukee county alone . In 1995 Milwakee county had less than 1000 prisoners . Is Scott Walker moving Wisconsin forward ? This your reason for budget problems in Wisconsin. Big spender big government Scott Walker. Why does he not work for the people he is taking his check from the people ?
    Wisconsin Budget watch blog has a great article on this.
