Yes, because the GOP would NEVER overreach. Only Democrats do that. Scott Walker and the Fitzgerald family are just doing what’s best for the people of Wisconsin.

Republicans managed to cut the state deficit by 80%. Now it’s the DFL’s turn. Talk is cheap.

Repubs offered short term quick fix solutions to protect taxing millionaires and raided the education and tobacco money to do it. They didn’t reduce the deficit, they threw a band aid on it for short term…the 2014 and 2015 budget is still projected at 1.1 Billion deficit. See link…

The DFL will do what they do, tax and spend. It’s nothing more complicated tham that.

Perhaps. Though the Republican history is one of “talking” spending cuts without actually doing them and not raising taxes. Giving us the ugly deficit history we have both on the state and federal level. This is why we have to bring in the Democrats periodically to get balanced budgets. So, give me the folks who understand that if you are going to spend you should pay for that spending every time. Unlike the Republicans who love to spend but don’t like to pay.
Of course, we could always go with the libertarian model and get rid of all services that actually make up the local and state budget (schools, roads, road plowing, fire departments, police departments, etc., you know – socialism).

When will the politicians ever have enough? No matter how much they raise taxes, they still want more. After 10+ years of at least putting a little damper on things with a mixed government, it’s open season on taxpayers now. The DFL can do whatever they want for the next two years..
