AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement:

“As inflation continues to rise, Governor Evers is supporting policies that will make the cost of everyday goods even more unaffordable for Wisconsin families. His constituents deserve to know how his irresponsible and reckless policies will impact their lives, family budgets and jobs.

“The AFP-WI grassroots team is excited to talk to their neighbors and fellow citizens over the coming months about the dangers of Governor Evers tax-and-spend policies.”

Background:

Governor Evers has continuously proposed and supported inflation-driving, tax and spend policies since taking office in January 2019. These tax-and-spend policies, on top of job-killing “Green New Deal-type” regulations are bad for Wisconsin families.

  • 2019-21 Proposed Executive Budget:
    • Increased the gas tax, making it harder for families to fill up at the pump
    • Increased taxes by $1.7 billion on families and businesses
    • Allow for annual increases in property taxes
    • Increased government spending by over $6 billion from the previous budget
    • Proposed Green New Deal-type policies that would increase the cost of energy and gas
  • 2021-23 Proposed Executive Budget:
    • More than $1 billion in new taxes on families and businesses
    • $3.2 billion in new government spending
    • Increased the tax on our electricity bills, making these bills more expensive
    • Green New Deal regulations that would make heat and electricity more expensive for families
  • Other Policies:
    • Governor Evers supports the massive “Build Back Better” spending spree in Washington, DC that would further drive inflation on everyday goods.
    • Governor Evers supports the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, which spent an additional $1.2 trillion on a number of government pet projects.
    • Governor Evers’ appointees on the Public Service Commission recently raised electricity rates and home heating prices, some by double digits.
