Senator Bradley: Surplus shouldn’t be spent to grow government


By - Jun 8th, 2021 10:36 am

MADISON, Wis. — State Senator Julian Bradley, R–Franklin, released the following statement Tuesday in response to a projected $4.4 billion increase in expected state tax revenues through the end of the next state budget, according to a Legislative Fiscal Bureau re-estimate:

“This surplus is money that is taken from taxpayers above and beyond what we need to pay our bills. Instead of recklessly spending these dollars on growing government and increasing dependency — as Governor Evers undoubtedly wants — we need to prioritize substantial, transformational tax relief for Wisconsin workers and small businesses.

“This extra $4.4 billion doesn’t belong in the hands of politicians, but in the hands of middle-class Wisconsinites so they can invest in their futures and families.”

  1. Mingus says:

    If we want an educated population to support our industries and businesses in Wisconsin, we need support from the State. From the Senator’s press releases, he seems to be an protege of Robin Voss. He needs to realize that the fringe ideas that Republican politicians are advocating are turning off independent voters and even many traditional Republicans. When he runs for a State wide office, these voters will likely vote for reason and not someone who promotes Republican political theater.
