Letter from Sen. Vinehout: The "Eat Dessert First" budget
"I love to eat dessert first," the Prescott man said as he munched on cake. He smiled and said, "The problem is you don't have room for the good things you need to eat."
The first course of dessert in the state budget is a tax cut for about seventy five percent of tax filers. For a taxpayer making $30,000 a year the tax cut would be about $50 a year and for someone making over $300,000 about $1,500.
