.@SpeakerVos and @SenFitzgerald release letter sent to @GovEvers about their concerns with the capital budget. Namely, its size and the amount of borrowing included: pic.twitter.com/b7QDrlrGKR— Laurel White (@lkwhite) March 20, 2019
But if Vos and Fitz agree with a lot of the projects, why are they ordering their WISGOP appointees not tovote for them?
WisGOP goes on record against a cancer research facility, a juvenile mental health treatment center, veteran nursing home upgrades, the state's National Guard Readiness Center, DNR service centers, UW classrooms, and dozens of other projects.— Tony Palese (@TonyPaleseIV) March 20, 2019
Letting your university infrastructure crumble while spending $billions on #Foxconn sends a signal, #WI. It's a big reason why I headed for the exit. https://t.co/UGPtgEhhoa— Dave Vanness (@djvanness) March 20, 2019
Here's the most idiotic part about this GOP stunt today. IT DIDNT DO ANYTHING! The whole thing goes to Joint Finance, and projects can be added/removed there just like it would have if the Commission signed off on most/all of the projects.
Look, I get that WisGOP may not like what Evers' did in the Capital Budget. Heck, I think it borrows too much (even if a lot of it is paid back via non-tax sources like room and board, parking, and other user fees), and is so big it gives a too-easy target for it to be criticized.
But instead of surgically improving the Capital Budget and still making the point about "overspending," WisGOP stamps their feet like children saying "NO! NO! NO!" And now the gerrymandered GOP legislators will look very foolish, while needed infrastructure continues to crumble.
I'm sick of these adolescent dopes messing up my state.
lol. So Evers made them reject all the building projects? They are such victims.ReplyDelete
Sure looks like they're against (should look good in Dem Campaign ads) a cancer research facility, a juvenile mental health treatment center, veteran nursing home upgrades, the state's National Guard Readiness Center, DNR service centers, UW classrooms, and dozens of other projects. This lack of attention to detail should get them in trouble with their voters, but they're not paying attention either.ReplyDelete
They want government in all forms to crumble.ReplyDelete
