Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
The private sector has been taking a beating from some in the public sector during the Wisconsin 2011-13 budget process. The rhetoric has been predictable with these statements coming after the budget was signed into law:
“Throughout the budget process the Republicans have prioritized corporate profits over communities and people.”
“Tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthy.”
The “budget serves corporate special interests.”
“We should be fighting to protect the rights of the people of this state, not wealthy, out-of-state corporations seeking political patronage.”
The budget “gives billions of dollars in tax cuts to corporations.”
And on and on and on and on.
Over and over and over again.
One generality after another.
Businesses that creates jobs….BAD.
Government that taxes and spends your money…GOOD.
Here’s another example of those rotten companies.
