Evers Signs Budget

The MacIver Institute has a good rundown of the budget after Evers’ 78 line item vetoes. Here’s the short version: Evers got 80% of what he wanted, so he signed it with a few tweaks. Big-spending Republicans got 80% of what they wanted. Conservatives got nothing.

Politically speaking, this was a disaster for Republicans. They managed to piss off conservatives in their base with a big-spending budget without appeasing or winning a single vote from the other side. Meanwhile, Evers walks away with a 80% win and can continue to demonize Republicans for not giving him everything.

    We did get one thing – the end (for now) of that mileage “study”/future guaranteed tax increase (which apparently had been quietly modified to require full Legislative approval).

    My Little Miss LeftyPubbie is very proud of this pile of SanFran StreetTreat.
