Evers Shoots $2 Billion Hole in Budget

I am thankful that the good voters of Wisconsin had the wisdom to elect a Republican legislature to check this idiocy.

MADISON – Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ spending plan would leave the state with a nearly $2 billion gap at the start of the next budget cycle in two years, according to a report Monday by the Legislature’s nonpartisan budget office.

The gap, known as the structural deficit, would be the largest since former Gov. Jim Doyle approved his last budget a decade ago amid the fallout from the Great Recession.
