Almost everything's getting cut, but is it enough?
Governor Jim Doyle slashes agency spending, Republican Representative Robin Vos from Racine says there's plenty more to cut.
"When we look at the amount of spending cuts that are in there we probably would have went deeper. State government is the area that needs to make cuts, not just passing it on to somebody else."
Vos, who's a member of the legislative joint finance committee, says the governor does, in fact, raise taxes.
"New tax increases … one is an increase in the hospital tax, the second is the cell phone tax which we are not paying today, that'll generate $100-million of increased fees."
Vos says when you do the math, there's still a spending increase in the budget plan, at a time when Wisconsin families are having to hold the line on spending because they have less money coming in. Vos adds, we don't know the details yet, but he's worried the property tax payers will take a hit.
