One of the self declared crowning achievements of Scott Walker’s time as governor, is how he ‘balanced’ his first biennial budget (which is I believe, a state constitutional requirement, but never mind that). He touts this accomplishment at every rally, speech and prominently at both debates. BUT…just 8 months or so into the FIRST year of that two year budget, his administration discovers a shortfall. How in blazes could that happen…he made all the ‘correct’ hard decisions.
Well never mind, because in February a windfall fell into his lap via the national mortgage settlement. Meant to help individual Wisconsinites caught up in the mortgage foreclosure debacle, the state of Wisconsin received $31.6 million directly. But Governor Walker and Attorney General Van Hollen decided to divert $25.6 million to cover their
asses budget deficit.
So…the balanced budget was a lie…filling the shortfall with diverted funds is a bit shady…hmmm…YOUR NOT WORKING Governor Walker!
