No Runny Eggs

The repository of one hard-boiled egg from the south suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (and the occassional guest-blogger). The ramblings within may or may not offend, shock and awe you, but they are what I (or my guest-bloggers) think.

Hot view Friday – Rebecca Kleefisch and the Capitol view of Necrobudget

Rebecca Kleefisch, late of WISN-TV, took a camera to the state Capitol yesterday, asked various Legislators what the most wasteful thing in the budget is, and posted the results on YouTube.

She managed to get both my Assemblyman, Mark Honadel (R-South Milwaukee, who noted that the budget creates more government that will never go away), and my Senator, Jeff Plale (D-South Milwaukee, and I’ll get to his item momentarily). I personally like the item from Rep. Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa) – “It starts on line one of page 1 and ends on line 7 of page 1903.”

I have a follow-up for Plale -if you thought the $10 million to create a UW system nursing school it didn’t want was wasteful, why did you vote for it?

Revisions/extensions (9:00 am 6/26/2009) – After a review of the version of the Comparative Summary of Recommendations that includes the Conference Committee version of the budget, I guess wasting $3,006,000 on advance planning for a “potential” new building for UW-Madison’s School of Nursing and mandating a school of nursing for UW-Stevens Point is, in fact, quite all right by Plale.
