The Wisconsin Senate is looking to cut taxes, once again. Republicans in the Senate yesterday overrode Governor Tony Evers’ vetoes that cut a three-and-a-half billion-dollar tax cut out of the new state budget.
Republicans also voted to scuttle the governor’s veto that orders a 400-year school funding increase. The override votes don’t really matter though. Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly don’t have enough votes to do the same. The governor yesterday accused Republicans of wanting to take money away from public schools, and of wanting to give tax cuts to millionaires.
