Oma Vic McMurray: “It just had such a magic to it, this whole sleeping in the Capitol and feeling the community and the love, was just incredible.” (29:24)
Scott Walker likes to say that he eliminated Wisconsin's budget deficit, and he did it without raising taxes. He claims the budget is “balanced."
We know that’s a lie.
Walker’s budget deficit still exists – it was transferred to us, the middle class, the working poor, and those struggling to make it. We’ve been sacrificing our entire lives, but we bore the burden of Walker's Deficit with cuts to education, cuts to healthcare, and cuts to local services. Walker made deep cuts to our quality of life while big corporations and the wealthy got tax breaks and the working class got tax increases.
The deficit didn’t disappear...it was hidden in the suffering of real people - everyday Wisconsin people - who don’t have powerful bankers and corporate big shots for friends.
