    Just amazing… I still remember those days of Governor Doyle year after year at the state-of-the-state address, grimly repeating the mantra of ‘investments’ needing to be made (meaning ‘higher taxes’) all to keep his union buddies from having to contribute anything close to their fair share towards their fat benefit packages.

    Thank you so much for showing us a different path, and moving Wisconsin towards success and prosperity. The best is indeed yet to come!
