Ironically challenged Republicans
I couldn't believe it when I heard that Sen. Glenn Grothman wants the State to take over plowing plans for Madison. This is a plan that would be dismissed as crazy if the supreme irony wasn't so apparent. Here is a pro local control anti government Republican advocating that a bigger government manage snow removal in Madison. Why only Madison? Because they are "LIBERAL". The beautiful part of this plan is there would be no money from the State to pay for doubling the amount of salt put on Madison streets creating an unfunded mandate which I thought all Republicans were against. Who is going to placate the fisherman when the fishing goes away due to a high salt content in the lakes. We'll have to have a legislative committee investigate this just like they are doing with the deer numbers. If Glenn really believes that we need a snow removal agency we should do it statewide because I for one have been on some pretty poor roads in the winter.
