[Madison, Wis.] – The Tony Evers campaign continued to take heat this week on the “variety” of taxes he is planning to increase. The coverage included Scott Walker’s campaign releasing a statewide TV ad on Tuesday to further spotlight Evers’ plans to hike property, income and gas taxes – a plan that would take Wisconsin backward.
While “everything is on the table” for Tony Evers when it comes to raising taxes, Scott Walker is focused on delivering results for families, such as his record actual-dollar investments in K-12 education without tax increases – setting an example for the right way to keep Wisconsin working.
Check out what’s in the news:
From Wisconsin Public Radio: “The Walker ad mimics a skit on the PBS show ‘The Electric Company,’ featuring the silhouettes of two people sounding out the words ‘property,’ ‘income’ and ‘gas’ to argue they will all go up under Evers.”
From the Ledger-Enquirer: “Walker, in a new television ad, hearkened back to a children’s show that was popular when he was in elementary school to say if elected Evers would raise income, property and gas taxes.”
From the Wisconsin State Journal: “Evers has not unveiled tax or roads plans, but he’s said ‘anything is on the table.’”
From the Lacrosse Tribune: “In making his case to voters, Walker argued that Wisconsin is in a much better place than when he was first elected in 2010. He touted historically low unemployment rates, the success of schools across the state, and his own ability to keep taxes low.”
