Wisconsin GOP Promises Tax Cuts, but won't say How they are going to Pay for Them.

In an effort to debate the issues for job creation, Republicans accidentally tossed out one of the debaters. At least, we think it's an accident.
One Wisconsin Now staff (was) removed by security from its convention grounds outside the Harley Davidson Museum (as it) was respectfully asking convention participants to sign its petition calling for responsible budgeting and to reject unpaid, budget-busting tax cuts for the rich and big business supported by its leading candidates for governor, Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker and former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann.

"Scott Walker and Mark Neumann refuse to tell Wisconsin how they will pay for their job-killing, budget-busting tax cut plans for the rich and big business, because they can't pay for them.

This isn't just an issue "created" by Democrats. Conservative David Frum has also questioned the wisdom of tax cuts when deficits are so high. Frum argues that both Democrats and Republicans can't do what they want do without creating more deficits, unless they pay for it with cuts somewhere else.

One Wisconsin Now, and every tea party protester, should be asking how the Republicans are going to pay for their promised tax cuts.
