A Quote Built for Radio & TV Spots

So I was scouring the Internet last night and this morning from the aftermath of the Assembly passing the state budget.  During that process, I don’t know if the man’s ego or anger of the process finally got the better of him, but JFC Co-Chairman Mark Pocan (D-Madison) may have given Assembly Republicans THE QUOTE when it comes to the 2010 races.

If (and given past Assembly race fights handled by the State GOP, that could be a BIG “If”) things pretty much go how they’re likely to go, this puppy could be ridden for sometime.

Thank you Mark, seriously.  (via the Wisconsin Radio Network)

Madison Democrat Mark Pocan said the plan does what Democrats pledged they would do after gaining the majority in the Assembly: dealing with a record deficit, while protecting schools, public safety and health care, and shielding working families from big tax hikes. A family earning the median state income, said Pocan will pay “about 128 bucks” in new taxes and fees. “Given a $6.6 billion deficit, a historic deficit, I don’t think that’s all that bad.”

The WisPolitics Budget Blog has it that Pocan’s math put ‘the impact of the budget to the median family at about $128.10 annually.’

If you believe that local governments and school boards – especially with the QEO about to be blown up – are going to keep their local property taxes down, or that the rest of the budget won’t top numbers greater that “$128.10 a year,” you must be sniffing something on State Street.

Wait a minute, this is a Madison Liberal I’m talking about…that’s very likely what has happened.

  • I like how he starts it “given a $6.6B deficit.” Imagine if he was someone with a real job…

    Given that we totally screwed up your brake shoe replacement, if you have to pay for new axles, that's not so bad.

    Given that we spent most of the school year showing your child movies about sex and global warming, if you have to pay for remedial summer algebra, that's not so bad.

    Given that we gave you chlamydia after we didn't disinfect the speculum (a real-world example of Doctor Government, from Mark Steyn), if you have to pay for an antibiotic, that's not so bad.

    What are we supposed to say? “Oh, well, if we're paying more because you're incompetent weasels, that's OK, then”?
