Evers Turns Back on WI Taxpayers – Again

MADISON – Governor Evers chose to veto a bipartisan middle class tax cut for hard-working Wisconsin taxpayers this morning. Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna), a vocal advocate of lowering the tax burden for Wisconsin families, released the following statement after the governor’s veto:

“I am incredibly disappointed that Governor Evers proved to once again be incapable of doing right by our taxpayers. It’s simple: the government took more money than needed from Wisconsinites, and now it’s our job to put that money back in their pockets.

“Despite garnering the support of Democrat and Republican lawmakers alike, Governor Evers has again showed his true colors by abandoning this bipartisan tax cut in favor of appeasing his union bosses. I remain committed to lowering the tax burden and reducing debt for hard-working Wisconsinites – I hope that Governor Evers will eventually join me and my colleagues in this pursuit.”
