Over at Eye on Wisconsin, Cory Liebmann has some interesting number regarding the budgets submitted by Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker during his time in office:
- Walker Proposed Spending in HIS BUDGET for 2003: $1,100,274,125
- Walker Proposed Spending in HIS BUDGET for 2010: $1,481,577,120
That’s a 35% increase in spending since Walker has been at the helm in Milwaukee County.
- TAX LEVY
- Walker Proposed Tax Levy in HIS BUDGET for 2003: $218,708,524
- Walker Proposed Tax Levy in HIS BUDGET for 2010: $257,637,284
That amounts to nearly a $40 million increase or an 18% raise in the tax levy as proposed by Walker in his own budgets.
I wonder….will we be reading or hearing conservatives attacking Scott Walker for his tax and spend policies as Milwaukee County Executive?
I think not.
