Scott Walker’s Budget Plan - Raise Taxes on Middle Class Families

http://www.politiscoop.com/us-politics/wisconsin-politics/1630-scott-walker-s-budget-plan-raise-taxes-on-middle-class-families.html

MADISON – After cooking the books in his first budget, Scott Walker is once again using funny math and accounting gimmicks in drafting his second state budget.

Despite his recent trip to Washington D.C. to meet with the President and other Republican and Democratic governors on the impact of going over the so-called “fiscal cliff,” Scott Walker is relying on precisely that scenario in his upcoming state budget.

Walker’s Department of Administration is projecting more than $1.5 billion in new revenue for Walker to play with in the budget, yet fails to mention that at least $219 million of that revenue would only potentially be available if Congress doesn’t come to an agreement in its negotiations over the fiscal cliff.

If Congress fails to come to an agreement on an overall deficit reduction package by the end of the year, income taxes will automatically go up on all Americans – including 97 percent of small businesses and the 98 percent of Americans who make less than $250,000 a year.
