Big Spenders: Wisconsin Gummints

Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance:

From 1983 to 2007, state aid and tax credits for kindergarten through grade 12 schools rose 320%, state expenditures were up 222%, inflation rose 115% and UW funding increased 99%, according to the report released Tuesday by the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance

WTA seems to be complaining that UW funding is shorted.

Thank God for small favors. And that IS a small favor, given the above.

I don't think their arguing that UW is shorted, just explaining why people who work for UW feel shorted. Everyone not in primary and secondary education has been shorted over the years. K-12 education is eating 45% of the states money these days.
