Democratic State Rep. Cory Mason of Racine proposed honoring the kringle _ a large round flat pastry with a hole in the middle made predominantly in Racine County _ in the state budget proposal that passed early Wednesday.
I have been considering a series of blogs titled, “This is in the state budget?” or at least a single omnibus post about all of the non-budgetary crap that’s being shoved into the current budget bill…but it is really hard to call out the Republicans and Governor Walker for ignoring their various pledges to omit non-budgetary nonsense…when our friends stick even more inane nonsense into the budget like Kringle. gee whillikers!
But yes, unfortunately there are dozens of very serious items in the budget that should be stand alone items…either because they have nothing to do with the state budget…and/or…because they deserve a very serious public discussion in their own right. And they should all be pulled from the budget and reintroduced as stand alone bills.
