Erpenbach on final budget passage

"We can do better."

By - Jul 8th, 2015 12:00 am

“This budget spent over $10 billion dollars more than the 2009-2011 budget. The problem with this budget was never a lack of cash. From day one, the problem has been that this budget is all about presidential politics and not about the priorities of the people of this state.”

“To ensure the future economic security of our families and communities we need to invest in K-12 public schools, not cut them. We need to put more money into the UW System, not cut it $250 million. We need to make decisions that put more money in the pockets of working families, not less like repealing living wage and prevailing wage laws. We need to bring our taxpayer’s money back to Wisconsin instead of letting it be used in Illinois and Arizona for the health of their people.”

“The decisions made today will have an effect on Wisconsin and I am afraid it will not be a good one. We are currently dead last in small business growth in the nation. We have stagnant wages and a stalled economy. We can do better.”
