Solving Wisconsin's Budget Income Problem

Due to the claimed needs for more money for Wisconsin's existing and proposed State programs, I suggest the following taxes be used to pay for such:
1. A one cent ($0.01) on every copy of all daily newspapers published in Wisconsin (Less the copies sent to other states so as to prevent any claims of violations of the "Commerce Clause" of the US Constitution); And,
2. A five-cent ($0.05) tax on every kilowatt-hour of power used by all of Wisconsin's radio and TV stations.

Certainly, such taxes are not applied directly to our fellow citizens (As some claimed about those proposed in our State Capitol) and that the news papers and broadcast media would "eat" that cost of operation as it is so much in the public interest to support those all so necessary programs of public spending.

Right! If you believe that, I have a bridge and some gold mining stocks to sell to you!
