MADISON – The following is a statement from Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on the governor's tax gimmick.
"When Wisconsin ranks 37th in the nation in job growth, there is no doubt that middle-class families are in need of relief," said Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson. "While the Governor has not provided any concrete details of his proposal, history tells us that his plan will primarily benefit the rich. We know from Wisconsin's lagging economy that we cannot cut our way to prosperity. Wisconsin should commit itself to long-term solutions instead of short-sighted gimmicks. Wisconsin citizens want us to again prioritize Wisconsin's future by reinvesting in the areas that have been ignored the last three years, including K-12 education, technical colleges and making higher education affordable."
