Saying No to Evers' Liberal Wishlist
Unlike Governor Evers' liberal wishlist, the WISCONSIN Budget holds the line on spending and cuts taxes for Wisconsin families.
Here's a sample of some of the radical ideas Governor Evers had proposed that the WISCONSIN Budget rejects:
- $1 billion in tax increases;
- 71 non-fiscal policy items, as identified by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau;
- Capping the school choice program that limits the ability of low income families to pick the school that is best for their children;
- Providing drivers licenses for illegal aliens;
- Tuition breaks for undocumented individuals;
- Governor’s expansion of welfare programs;
- Eliminating drug screening requirements and time limits for welfare;
- Changes to unemployment insurance that would make it easier to not work and increase costs for employers at a time when unemployment is below 3%;
- Re-establish prevailing wage laws that were recently repealed. The repeal of prevailing wage has been shown to reduce state construction costs for roads and buildings;
- Decriminalization of marijuana that would have opened the door to recreational use;
- Funding Planned Parenthood;
- Provide free internet for welfare recipients;
- Create automatic voter registration;
- Eliminate the Legislature's oversight of the Executive Branch;
- Place redistricting in the hands of unelected bureaucrats.
Cutting Your Taxes
Unlike the $1 billion tax hike proposed by Gov. Evers and his Democrat allies, the WISCONSIN Budget provides more than $500 million in tax cuts for working families.
That means, coupled with Republican tax reforms passed over the last ten years, Wisconsin taxpayers will have saved over $12 billion in total.
Coupled with the holding the line on property taxes, the WISCONSIN Budget is helping you keep more of you hard-earned dollars.
