Thanks to Republican reforms, Wisconsin is in great financial shape.
We have ended eight straight years with a surplus, and cut taxes by more than $8 billion dollars. At a time when our state has a surplus, we should look for a way to return it to those who provided it.
I'm excited about a
middle-class tax cut plan offered by Republicans
to make good on a promise made by Governor Evers during the election. I believe we can find a solution to provide tax relief for the middle-class without hurting Wisconsin farmers like the Governor originally proposed. I believe tax cuts should give money back to the people who provided it, not redistribute others' wealth the way the governor is demanding.
Starting the new legislative session with a bi-partisan tax cut for the middle class shows there is a true willingness to work together and deliver real results for the people of Wisconsin.
I look forward to working with the Assembly and getting a more complete review of our state's finances from the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau. This is a great opportunity to deliver a win for the taxpayers of Wisconsin, not just a win for Republicans or Democrats.
