AFP Kicks off “A Better Wisconsin” Ten-City Bus Tour
Today in Wisconsin, Americans for Prosperity kicked off the start of a four-day, ten-city “A Better Wisconsin” Bus Tour. Stops in Milwaukee, Sheboygan, and Oshkosh drew hundreds of activists from across the state, all out to support budget reform in Wisconsin.
Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, Wisconsin State Director Luke Hilgemann, and radio host Tony Katz spoke at each event today, firing up the crowd and focusing on the elimination of the $3.6 billion state deficit, the reduction of property taxes for the first time in 12 years, and the $1 billion plus savings due to Act 10.
“The country is watching Wisconsin,” Phillips told activists. “Why is that? Governor Walker and your Legislature have put people before politics, and fought for the hardworking, taxpaying citizens of Wisconsin. And numbers don’t lie: Wisconsin turned a $3.6 billion deficit into a $154 million surplus, decreased property taxes for the first time in 12 years, and delivered over a billion dollars in savings to the taxpayers!”
