WisGOP: Walker cuts taxes – Evers wants to raise them
Walker releases an ad highlighting new tax relief while Tony Evers leaves massive tax hikes “on the table”
[Madison, WI] — Monday, Governor Scott Walker released an ad highlighting his proposal to increase the Homestead Tax Credit by 50%, which would help more seniors to stay in their homes. In sharp contrast to Walker’s latest proposal, Tony Evers has made clear that he plans to increase taxes on hard-working families, farmers, and seniors.
“The difference between Governor Walker and Tony Evers could not be more evident – Walker wants to cut your taxes while Evers wants to raise them,” said Alec Zimmerman spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “The governor has delivered over $8 billion in tax relief since he was first elected. Meanwhile, Evers has made clear he plans raise taxes and has even said that a $1 increase in the gas tax is ‘on the table.’ Walker’s commitment to lower taxes will keep moving Wisconsin forward – we can’t afford the backward policies of Madison bureaucrat Tony Evers.”
