Senate OK'd budget goes to Walker - JSOnline
Walker had proposed eliminating the income limits for those who can receive school vouchers. Republicans in the Legislature decided to raise it from 175% to 300% of the federal poverty level. Married couples would have a higher limit - $7,000 above 300% of the poverty level.It's as if we don't understand incentives and have learned nothing from the history of welfare in this country. I suspect that if you polled every GOP legislator they would say they believe they are standing up for the institution of marriage and that they value it highly. This provision casts doubt on such a stance.
The current limit is $39,113 for a family of four. That would rise to $67,050 for a family of four headed by a single parent, and $74,050 for a family of four headed by a married couple.
