Wisconsin’s governor is once again saying ‘No’ to a tax cut from Republican lawmakers.
Governor Evers yesterday vetoed the proposed two billion-dollar tax cut, calling it an unserious plan. Republican lawmakers want to use Wisconsin’s record, nearly seven billion-dollar budget surplus to pay for the tax cut. The governor says he’d rather spend the surplus on child care, a Medicaid expansion, and other programs.
This is the second time the governor has scuttled a Republican tax cut this year. He vetoed a three billion-dollar tax cut out of the state budget over the summer.
