Judge for yourself.
By all accounts it’s still a big, fat nothing from the state Republicans on how to solve the massive budget deficit the eight years of failed George W. Bush policies have levied on Wisconsin and nearly every state in the nation.
One Wisconsin Now sent our OWNews reporter Cody Oliphant to the state Capitol in the hopes of finding answers from GOP leaders.
Watch the latest One Wisconsin Now video to see the outrageous, but hilarious results.
Over and over, state Republican leaders have avoided telling the people of Wisconsin what their detailed plans are to solve the state’s $6.6 billion budget deficit.
From Senate Minority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, silence.
Assembly Minority Leader Jeff Fitzgerald, silence.
And you don’t have to take our word for it. Watch the OWNews and see for yourself.
What have the Republicans said? Well, they’ve criticized the Democrats for closing the Las Vegas Loophole that allowed companies to dodge hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes by opening a phone post office box office in one of the handful of states that don’t have corporate income taxes.
Likewise, GOP budget spokesperson Rep. Robin Vos has done little more than criticize common-sense budget solutions like asking just a little bit more of those in the top one percent of income earners.
That’s not a plan from the Republicans. And Wisconsin deserves better.
