In response, One Wisconsin Now issued a press release attacking Scott Walker. I'd dismiss it as all boilerplate, but it included this howler:
[Walker would] Shift tax revenue from new car sales into the transportation fund — two-year budget cost: $1 billion.Of course, the transportation fund is the other fund that Doyle likes to raid in order to mask continued irresponsible budgeting.
In fact, the Wisconsin State Journal article OWN cites as a source for this claim starts off with this (emphasis added):
State officials in March closed a major section of Highway 45 after discovering "dangerous deterioration" on a bridge that carries traffic through the Zoo Interchange, the state's busiest. It was the latest example of a growing problem across the state: Wisconsin's transportation system is aging.
Meanwhile, its funding system is routinely raided to pay for other programs...and later:
Meanwhile, Wisconsin has in the past eight years raided its transportation fund for $1.3 billion to pay for other state programs. It has borrowed $1 billion to offset the loss, leaving a $300 million shortfall.So Walker is going to put back $1billion of the $1.3 billion that Doyle transferred out of the fund. No doubt Wisconsin drivers will appreciate that in the long run.
