Taxes, taxes taxes? Tommy! Tommy! Tommy!

According to new financial projections released earlier this week, the Miller Park stadium sales tax, which former governor (and possible U.S. Senate candidate) Tommy Thompson famously said was a way for the rest of the state to “stick it” to Milwaukee, will sunset sometime between 2016 and 2018, at least two years later than originally thought. The Miller Park stadium sales tax had originally been projected to be retired in 2014, but the recession has taken its toll on sales tax receipts, resulting in the later sunset date for the Miller Park sales tax.

The Miller Park sales tax is an integral part of Tommy “Stick it to ’em” Thompson’s legacy as governor of Wisconsin, and no doubt his words will come back to haunt him should he enter the 2010 U.S. Senate race here in Wisconsin.
