    How about the Washington Post do a story about how the state governments are doing in all the 50 states rather than singling out one state who has a governor who may run for President? Most of the time no one cares what happens in Wisconsin, what is the agenda now?
    Due to the fact they published this one as it is a viable news story on financial mismanagement. Do not worry, any other State doing the same will eventually be published by some news organization.

    How does it make the Member appear stupid- Does that add to the discussion you are looking for? Not at all.
    You are assuming that the Member is after this Politician, do you have more than just an assumption?
    My question to you is, how long have you been here, all day?

    So he cut $541 million in taxes and incurred an additional $1.1 million in fees? Can someone explain to me how this is fiscally irresponsible?

    I was under the impression that ANY government deficit and hence additional debt was fiscally irresponsible.

    Like Kansas and Oklahoma having huge budget shortfalls, not because of a sagging economy, Oklahoma weathered the storm rather well, but because the CONs went ape cutting taxes without any grasp of what good governance involved...
    Or Illinois?? It has a $100 billion dollar pension debt that the new Republican governor has to resolve.

    So the fact that member posted an entire thread based on what's taking place in his state, when that politician could very well run for presidency, is not a clear indication that the member is after him? Okay.

    Why are they not blasting CA, NY, MI for their terrible budget woes? how big are their deficits there again? hundreds of billions of dollars?

    This is a clear observation of a dumb move.
    Scott Walker's Risky College Experiment - Bloomberg View
    It's hard to believe that Governor Scott Walker's proposal to cut $300 million from the University of Wisconsinís budget over the next two years would allow the school to maintain its quality. Walker would prohibit the university from raising tuition during that period, but instead give university officials more flexibility in managing contracting and construction projects.

    The theory is that this flexibility could yield savings equal to at least 13 percent of what the state contributes to the universityís budget. Good luck with that.

    And ya want this kind of financial management at the Presidential level. Really.
    Scott Walker cut $541 million in taxes last year. Now his state will miss a $108 million debt payment. - The Washington Post
    In March last year, Walker signed a $541 million tax cut for both families and businesses. At that point, Wisconsin was facing a $1 billion budget surplus through June 2015, the Journal Sentinel reported.

    By November last year, the administration was estimating a $132 million shortfall. In January, the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau pegged it at $283 million. The Bureau, which does research for the Wisconsin Legislature, explained that tax collections were $173 million worse than the administrationís own estimates in November.

    This is the champion of fiscal conservatism and responsible governance? Oh My. Defaulting on a payment, costing the taxpayers' kids more in the future. This is my complete lack of surprise.
    Maybe if he just cut taxes some more?
    deferring does not equal defaulting.

    I post news stories all the time- And does that mean I support each one?
    Next- Is that all you have to go on?
    Not interested in a pissing match, just good discussion.
