Evers the Super-Spender; Walker the Runner-Up

The more one knows about Evers' budget, the more one is convinced that it's really a joke.

But there's more to it than just Evers.

MacIver has a thorough but not detailed look at Evers' offering here.  I noticed total spending and headcount.  In Evers' world, total spending will increase by about $4 BILLION and Gummint employees will go from 71,200 to 71,900.  Large numbers, eh?

Well, then....let's look back a bit.

The increase in OVERALL spending from (FY) 2010 through 2018 was $6 BILLION--which is twenty percent.  TWENTY percent from a "conservative Republican" governor.  Have YOU increased YOUR spending by 20% in the last 8 years??

Evers may be smoking something funny, but Walker....well......I've told my family and friends that Walker is "a government man," and he certainly is that.
