Q. Why do Democrats think business is corrupt and rich people don’t pay taxes?
A. Because rich Democrats are corrupt and don’t pay taxes.
The family bicycle business of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke (“I believe people should pay their fair share” – Ed.) has not paid state income taxes for more than three decades.
Trek, which claims its bicycles can “combat climate change,” has sales of roughly $900 million. However, according to records from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue obtained by Fox 6 in Milwaukee, Trek Bicycle has not paid net income taxes since at least 1982.
And wait, it gets better.
The company also received an $875,000 loan funded by Wisconsin taxpayers, while Burke was serving as Secretary of Commerce for the state.
Trek used the loan to build a new facility, and $392,300 of that loan was forgiven, according to Bjorling.
If they weren’t protected by judges and prosecutors just as corrupt as they are, the Democrats would be prosecuted under organized crime and racketeering laws.
