Under Tony Evers, the state of unions is strong
[Madison, WI] — Scott Walker is a reformer fighting for families – while his opponent, Tony Evers, has repeatedly sided with big government unions. From failing to keep our children safe in our schools to far-left plans to increase taxes, Tony Evers can’t be trusted. The Republican Party of Wisconsin released the following statement from Executive Director Mark Morgan:
“With Tony Evers, the state of unions is strong. Evers has shown these big government special interests that he’ll continuously side with them over hard-working Wisconsin families. While Scott Walker has fought for bold reforms that allowed Wisconsin to fund its priorities, Evers’ reckless embrace of the tax-and-spend policies of yesterday show that Wisconsin can’t afford his leadership.”
Tony and Tax Increases:
Tony Evers has not provided a plan on how he would pay for an additional $1.4 billion for the Department of Public Instruction – that’s in addition to his other plans that would cost Wisconsin billions.
Tony Evers would lift property-tax caps that could mean higher taxes on Wisconsin families.
Evers would end the Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit, which would mean higher taxes on key Wisconsin industries that provide thousands of jobs throughout our state.
When asked whether he supported a gas tax increase of a full dollar, Evers told reporters “everything is on the table.”
