Rush was emphatic today about the success Governor Scott Walker has had in the state of Wisconsin, noting that Walker is now returning almost half a billion dollars of their state surplus to the taxpayers in the form of property and income tax cuts:
NEW YORK TIMES – The Wisconsin Assembly has passed Gov. Scott Walker’s $504 million tax-cut plan. The chamber approved the bill on Tuesday by a vote of 61 to 35. The Senate passed it earlier this month. Assembly approval sends the bill on to Mr. Walker for his signature.
The governor wants to use a portion of the state’s projected $977 million surplus to pay for cuts in property and income taxes. He introduced a bill in January that would send $406 million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit and cut income taxes by $98 million by reducing the lowest bracket to 4 percent from 4.4 percent. The end result would be a $131 reduction a median home’s tax bill this December and $46 in annual income tax savings for the average worker.
Rush called Scott Walker’s success in Wisconsin the solution to America’s problems but points out the New York Times only gave it a 10-sentence blurb and stuck it on page A-14, giving it as little attention as possible.
He says that Democrats are living in mortal fear that this success by a Republican governor gets discovered by the media and gets widely reported.
