On Wednesday, Governor Evers delivered his budget address, and like his last two, it's filled with unsustainable amounts of spending – a 23% increase in the first year alone! His desire to grow the size of government and spend recklessly move Wisconsin in the wrong direction.
The tax cuts are hand-picked rather than for all Wisconsinites and are almost equal to the number of tax increases he's proposing. Governor Evers' tax increases would cost taxpayers nearly $1.4 billion.
While we may agree on the major issues facing the state, we disagree on the solutions. We will instead be going back to base for our budget – funding our priorities, addressing our obligations, cutting taxes and preparing for the future.
