Scott Walker: Double Talker on Spending (6/7/10)

Jun 06, 2010

Statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate on Scott Walker’s Hypocrisy on Spending


MADISON  — “Scott Walker sure talks a good game, but when it comes to actually holding the line on spending he fails to walk the walk.  His budget proposals as county executive have increased spending by 35% between 2003 and today.  While in the state legislature, Walker voted for five straight budgets that increased state spending from $26.6 billion to nearly $49 billion — an increase of more than 84%.    This ‘say one thing, do the exact opposite’ doublespeak of slick politicians like Scott Walker is exactly what people in Wisconsin will reject in November.”
