Tuesday, March 01, 2011                         For Immediate Release

The Governor is balancing the budget on the backs of middle class and working families and attacking the very heart of rural Wisconsin.

The deep cuts to schools will cause teachers to be laid off and rural schools to close; 30% cuts to our technical colleges will cripple the pathway for laid-off workers to a new career; cuts to our social safety net will relegate the needs of those less fortunate to waiting lists.

Over the next few weeks I will be reading in detail the 2000 pages of this budget. I will be working with our local leaders to understand the impact of the budget cuts on our communities and our public services. I will be watching for bombshells similar to those we recently learned of in the “Budget Repair” bill.
