In good old GOP days, tax burden was bigger

Does the new study by the Wisconsin Taxpayer's Alliance show that Wisconsinites are being taxed to death, as Republican mouthpieces were quick to claim?

Not at all, says the Beloit Daily News in an editorial explaining what's really going on, and pointing out that in the boom times when Tommy Thompson was king,
the tax burden in relation to incomes --again, according to the WTA -- is 32 percent, substantially below the peak of 36.7 percent in 2000, when [Republican Chair Rick]Graber's party controlled the governor's mansion.
