Madison, Wisconsin—The author of what would have been the largest tax increase in Wisconsin history has made clear her intentions to mount a run for governor, according to a report by the Associated Press and other statewide media. Tax-and-spend liberal State Senator Kathleen Vinehout recently filed the paperwork to form a committee for a statewide run. While Governor Walker has returned power to hard-working Wisconsin taxpayers, Kathleen Vinehout wants to empower big government special interests.
- In 2008, Vinehout authored the largest tax increase in Wisconsin history
- Her “Healthy Wisconsin” plan would have cost state taxpayers over $15 billion in its first year alone.
- Had the plan passed, the impact on Wisconsin’s budget and economy would have been disastrous, affecting the state’s economic structure for decades to come.
