Taxing Alternatives

The Journal Times yesterday challenged Republicans to offer an alternative to Governor Doyle's proposed Big Oil tax, noting that absent the tax, "the state will have a $160 million hole in its transportation budget."

Well, I am not a member of the GOP, but perhaps our top Democrat could return the $500 million he raided from the transportation fund during the most recent budget. Or should Big Oil pay for our education system as well as our roads?

Its the age old adage "Is the glass half-full or half-empty" To the Dems (J-T included) its half empty and needs to be refilled. (Although, to some, the glass never gets to the full mark). The GOP, on the other hand says "its time to curb your thirst!"
