This is for all those Scott Walker supporters out there who’ve deluded themselves into believing Gov. Walker is a fiscal conservative.
Yesterday rubber-stamp Republicans in the State Assembly sent the 2015-17 biennial budget to Gov. Walker for his signature, and it’s worth noting that budget is the largest in the history of the state of Wisconsin.
That’s right, the budget Gov. Walker is preparing to sign into law before he formally announces his candidacy for president represents the largest expenditure of taxpayer dollars in the 167-year history of our state.
The state Assembly sent the two-year $72.7 billion state budget to Gov. Scott Walker early Thursday, giving him just enough time to sign it before his presidential campaign announcement on Monday.
The budget passed 52-46, with 11 Republicans joining all Democrats in opposing the budget.
Because nothing says “fiscal conservatism” like a $72.7 billion state budget.
