Wisconsin Budget Heads to Walker’s Desk


The Assembly signed off on a $73.3 billion budget that repeals the prevailing wage for local projects and re-works significant pieces of the proposal Gov. Scott Walker sent the Legislature in February.

From one perspective, this budget is another strikingly conservative budget when compared to budgets of the past 50 years in Wisconsin. From another perspective, it still follows the Wisconsin “tradition” of spending too much, borrowing too much, and taxing too much.

Undoubtedly, Walker will want to sign this before he announces for president on Monday. We’ll see how much he uses his veto pen.

  1. Fairs Fare

    It appears along with the budget Walker has managed to get his “anti-abortion” legislation on his desk just in time for his big announcement on Monday. Just so everyone is aware how ineffective this law is and to show that it’s a political, not a moral issue with Walker I will present some statistics for all to contemplate.

    92% of all abortions take place PRIOR to the 13th week.
    7.3% occurred between the 14th and 20th weeks.
    1.4% occur after the 20th week.

    1,200,000 babies are aborted yearly in the U.S.A
    Do the math… Politics or Christian morality.
    Sacrificing the lives of the innocent to further personal ambitions when one has the power to make a change is reprehensible. Where is the outrage?
    People care more about prevailing wage then unborn babies. Disgusting.

    For those unwilling to due the research or that can’t add, Wisconsin’s new abortion law will only save 80 out of 1,200,000 murdered unborn babies per year. Ineffective, feel good legislation meant to appeal to the base. Wisconsinites, Christians and conservatives should all be ashamed of Scott Walker and this garbage legislation.

    80 more than before.

    If we had libs in there, they hurdle and escort babies into the death chamber.

    Short of revolution, incrementalism is only way to make real progress with the court system with no morality.

  4. Fairs Fare

    It should have been 7000 more than before. Walker is a coward and a lier. His promise to ban abortion in Wisconsin is the only reason he received any of my support. He is a failure on all other matters and we can now add abortion to the list. I hope he gets the presidential nomination just so he gets the hell out of a Wisconsin. Unfortunately, he won’t. To much corruption in his past.

    Why was the 20th week was chosen as the cut off date?
