|Walker moving state forward|
Why fix something that has already been fixed? That’s what Mary Burke wants to do as governor. She would have grave consequences for Wisconsin and take us back to financial mismanagement.
As commerce secretary for Gov. James Doyle, she helped construct the 2007-’09 state budget that left the state with a $5.4 million shortfall. Money just doesn’t grow on trees, you know.This ultimately left Gov. Doyle to raid over $1 billion from the state’s Transportation Fund, $200 million from the Patient’s Compensation Fund, and $2.1 billion from segregated accounts to cover up their excessive spending of middle class money.
Burke also supported tax increases on the hardworking middle class families to cover her budget.
Does it not make sense that when families all across our state have to pinch their pocket books, the government should too?
This is exactly what Gov. Walker did after the state lost more than 133,000 jobs and 27,000 businesses. He cut spending and lowered taxes to make life a little easier for all of us, especially for those hit by job loss.
Things are looking up for all of us here in Wisconsin with the creation of over 100,000 quality new jobs, record low unemployment and improved employer confidence. Gov. Walker fixed the state and we deserve nothing better than to continue moving forward with him another four years.
