Statements from the Wisconsin: 2014 Governor's race
"The state budget has actually grown by $4.6 billion under" Gov. Scott Walker’s actions.
"You've seen where we're now going from a $700 million surplus to getting into the next biennium with almost a $750 million deficit."
"The $3.6 billion deficit we inherited has turned into more than a half-billion-dollar surplus."
"During my eight years as county executive, we cut the number of county workers by 20 percent."
With a bill bringing $100 million in property tax relief, "the typical Wisconsin homeowner will save approximately $680 over four years."
"We’re 49th in the United States in new businesses created."
Says Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke "has proven on the Madison Board of Education" that she supports raising taxes and spending.
Says her actions as Wisconsin commerce secretary brought the state "84,000 more Wisconsin jobs than we have today."
Because of Gov. Scott Walker’s budgeting, a greater percentage of general fund tax dollars is "going to pay off debt than ever before in our history."
"I’ve got the spending down, I’ve got the debt down a little bit, I’ve got the reserves up."
