Heads up: bad news about Scott Walker’s new budget numbers…

… well, it’s bad news if you’re a progressive Wisconsinite, that is.

Wisconsin’s budget picture brightened Thursday, with new estimates that show a surplus will grow to $484 million, giving Republicans and Gov. Scott Walker even more room to pursue their tax cutting agenda.

The estimate from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau was nearly $137 million better than one Walker’s administration released in November. The numbers will be used by Walker as he puts the final touches on his two-year spending plan, which he’s set to unveil on Feb. 20.

Yes, I’m a dirty so-and-so. So?

  1. Not to twist the metaphorical knife (well, yes, I do mean to twist it)….from Gannett via the Appleton Post Crescent

    “The surplus this time makes it easier for Walker and Republicans to follow through on their promises to cut income taxes while also increasing spending on K-12 schools.”

    Gannett did not expound on the topic of increased K-12 spending.

  2. Nothing at all dirty about throwing the results of the failure of Democrats back in their faces. I just wish we could duplicate Wisconsin’s success in the other 49 states.

  3. Scott Walker is the only GOP that has been able to squeeze any money out of my tight fist since the election. Contributed small amount for his re-election. I like placing my bets on guys (gals) with guts and competance.
