Wal*Mart Rollbacks not for cheeseheads.

Yes, you have seen the commercials.

Wal*Mart is rolling back prices on products all over their stores.

Except in Wisconsin.

Funny that a guy in Vegas has to bring this to our attention. Hello, Wisconsin media, are you out there? Isn't it news that Wisconsin consumers are forced to pay higher prices than anywhere else in the nation due to our ridiculous state government?

Scott Walker, Tom Barrett, Mark Neumann, do you approve of this?

Wow, look at that, written in 2007. Easily found by google, I believe I searched "minimum markup law wisconsin". But I guess the fact that it has been on the books for 68 years doesn't fit your narative.

And why do we still have it when no other state in the union does?

Probably for the same reason some among us think it's fair to take money from someone who earned it and give to someone who didn't.  Liberalism.

Some other deals:  Powerade- 50 cents for a 32 ounce bottle.  At Thanksgiving, turkeys 40 cents a pound, hamburger and hot dog buns, 50 cents for a 8 pack.  It's just not at Wal Mart, but all the stores compete.  I can find 3 pouinds of London Broil steak for less than 4 dollars.  So, like I said in my post, this hurts the poor the most but I guess liberals don't really care for the poor.
Also, thanks for link.

There were 8x11 printouts taped around one of the WM's we visited explaining that they can't have the lower prices here in Taxconsin because of the minimum markup law.

The minimum mark up was deemed unconstitutional on gas (http://www.chippewa.com/news/article_da299425-a59f-548f-a30b-de7ca98826a6.html); it shouldn't be much of a stretch to apply the unconstitutionality to other items.

Do we really think our current state government would move to strike a bad law?  Not likely since they specialize in creating more bad law!

Regardless of the age of the min markup law - it would be appropriate for someone in the legislature to bring it up for repeal.  Any of our current Dem or GOP legislators out there care?
