Meet the recallers. They've developed a powerful antibody to shame.
Over the next 29 days, state and local governments will pay $17 MILLION because the left didnt get their way. It's a funny coincidence that some of the people that signed the recall petitions just happen to owe over $17 MILLION in back taxes and that's only part of the recall list!
Have you ever had your lawn get away from you for a while? Maybe your kids have a dance recital or you have family coming into town and you just didnt have the time to mow it?
Eventually, if it gets so bad, your neighbors start to give you dirty looks, and rather than have your neighbors resent you for making the neighborhood look bad you get out the old mower and get to work.
These are the people, when asked how local governments will pay for these elections say Tax the rich! They need to pay their FAIR SHARE! Apparently that means We dont have to pay, so they can pay more. They don't care about spending other people's money on recalls. They are shameless.
Of course, not everyone who signed a recall petition owes back taxes, and Im sure there are a few Walker supporters who arent completely paid up either, times are hard. The difference is those Walker supporters arent asking everyone else to pay $17 million dollars because they didnt get their way, so they can have a "do over".
In total, these Recallers have cost the state $34 Million dollars, and then they have the nerve to talk about fair share. Thats $34 Million that wont be spent to pay teachers, $34 Million that wont help sick people with medical care, that's $34 Million that wont go back into Taxpayer pockets.
Many local governments could wind up short this year because they didnt budget for the recall elections. Town and city governments dont have a lot of extra money lying around, and this is going to have a big impact on the money they have to repair roads, to pay snowplow drivers in winter, to provide all kinds of services. For safetys sake, lets hope Global Warming hits really hard this year! I like the Carolina winters.
Technically, if you live in town, there is probably a law that says you have to mow your yard, although I doubt the thought crossed your mind when your neighbors were giving you the eye. Your neighbors were using a powerful tool, called shame.
Names and Addresses that exactly match both recall petitions and Wisconsin Delinquent Taxpayers as of 4/11/2012:
This list is by no means complete. This is a list of the EXACT matches for First, Last, Address, City, Zip. Only 100% matches are shown. This means if the petition says "1234 South 21st Street" and the Wisconsin Department of Revenue has listed "1234 S. 21st Street" it is not matched or listed here.
Irony is not the opposite of wrinkly.
Check out how many of them signed the petition multiple times. Pretty sure you’re not supposed to do that, either. But hey, after you’ve welshed on your taxes, I guess signing a petition multiple times is small potatoes, right?
