Desperate Times Call For Desperate Actions

Milwaukee County Executive Lee Holloway wants to use a car rental tax to bolster the county's transit system.

This will be sure to get the right wingers in full bay as they express their outrage.

But the reality is that this will probably never even make it past the Board, much less the state legislature or Scott Walker.  What they should do is keeping pushing for the dedicated sales tax to bolster the regional economy, lower the property tax and get people to work.
