image for Scott Walker Proposes Wisconsin Sunlight Taxation Law
You'd better cough up.

Wisconsin's right wing governor, Scott Walker, is set to create more controversy with his latest revenue-generating scheme.

He plans to block out the sun with a statewide parasol and only open apertures over communities that pay.

Walker and his Republican colleagues in the state legislature have just pushed through a law that strips 175,000 public sector employees of most of their collective bargaining rights.

The move sparked weeks of protests and a national debate about union rights.

But his latest plans to raise tax revenue are bound to cause further unrest.

Standing next to his brother, he told a packed State Assembly yesterday: "We're the Walker Brothers. The sun ain't gonna shine any more, the moon ain't gonna rise in the sky... unless you pay."

After some shouting and heckling at the meeting he left the State Capitol and told the assembled press: "There's no regrets, no tears. Goodbye."
