Some early excerpts from Governor Scott walker's budget speech later tonight:
"Our focus is simple - more prosperity, better performance
and true independence."
"Our middle class tax cut is a down payment on my goal of
reducing the tax burden in our state every year I'm in office. I want to cut
taxes over and over and over again until we are leading the country in economic
"Higher taxes would slow our improving economy."
"Our tough, but prudent, decisions two years ago put us in a
position to further reduce the tax burden of our citizens, while still
investing in our priorities. Compare that to the tax increases enacted and
proposed in our neighboring states. And the folks in Washington DC provide an
even starker contrast to our positive results. "
"In the end, our goal is simple: ensure that every child –
regardless of where they are from or what their family income is – has access
to a great education."
"Our budget is built on a plan to reform a broken system and
transition people from government dependence to true independence."
