Even Walker's confidently stated lies can't break the trust they put in their "leader."
But to portray the struggling state of our economy, hit hard by the failure of his supply side austerity agenda, as somehow moving Wisconsin forward...would that be the last straw ... Walker's last big whopper and insult to our intelligence? Nope!
It now looks like the liberal blogosphere's warnings were amazingly accurate, again:
After telling his panting followers the above complete fabrication, he gave his now classic Walker "yes" nod. He does that a lot, to "catapult the propaganda," as George W. Bush say. The truth is, he's officially $283 million short this year, and faces this projection...
jsonline: Gov. Scott Walker begins his second term … plug a $2.2 billion state budget gap.Of course that doesn't include the $750 million transportation budget gap, which Walker now brags he's going to borrow. And don't forget he's taking out a $220 million state loan to help build the Buck's arena. He's looking out for the taxpayers?
He asked for an estimate of the budget challenge assuming that lawmakers would hold most spending at 2014-’15 levels for the two following years, and tax revenue would rise at the five-year average of 2.9 percent. That yielded an estimate of a $535 million surplus.
That rosy number flies in the face of the official estimate that uses a long-established method used by members of both parties, and the governor’s budget office.
We rate the claim False.
