WISTAX: Agree With It or Not, Walker's Plan Saves
There may be some argument about some of the cuts or spending priorities in governor Walker's two year budget plan. But there's little argument that the state will be in better fiscal shape if his spending proposal is adopted. That's the analysis from the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance. The group doesn't endorse the budget but does say that spending cuts will decrease the amount of growth in the state's official deficit significantly. The amount of red ink on the state's financials will still be above three billion dollars but that's only slightly more than it is now. And that's also after the deficit more than tripled from ten years ago.
