It's no wonder there is a huge movement to recall Doyle. Everyone is fed up with the spending spree that continues to rage on.
A total of $1.2 billion in new taxes and fees were passed in 72 hours with out any public input in February by the Democrats (Act 2). We are now looking at $1.7 billion in even MORE new taxes and fees that were proposed by Governor Doyle in his budget (AB75). We have yet to know how many billions we are looking at with the Joint Finance Committee version.
In a matter of 6 months, the democrats are moving to increase spending, and raise taxes and fees in this state $3 billion! Aside from the taxes, the Democrats are GROWING government by 9% and creating new unprecedented policies that will forever change the face of Wisconsin.
The state of WI is facing a $6 billion shortfall. The democrats are plugging the hole in this budget with one-time stimulus money from the feds, increasing taxes and fees and very minimal reductions. They have crafted this budget largely in secret meetings behind closed doors with their special interests.
