THE quote in the gubernatorial race

It’s really all you need to know.

Scott Walker, speaking to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Editorial Board on October 8, 2010:

“I'm not going to raise taxes, period.  So, when

people say, how can you balance a budget

and still propose cutting taxes, I say I've done

it. I've done it in this latest budget.  If we can

do that with the county budget there's no

doubt we can do it with the state.

I'd like to have tax cuts across the

board, and the ones I specifically

mention are the tax cuts I'd like to do in

that first session that we call the special

session. It would be tax cuts for small

businesses with 50 employees or less,

and in the biennium we're still in  . . . 

we anticipate to end with a $45 million

surplus by the end of that. 

Because the theory is that if you get more

people working because of a better business

environment, over a two-year period, you're

actually going to have more people paying into

income tax and sales taxes that will help you in

other areas as well.”

There is no truth to the rumor that most of the Editorial Board members went into cardiac arrest.

Remember, Tom Barrett doesn't even know if our property taxes are too high.
