Leave it to Evers: Tony’s ‘compromise’ facade crumbles

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers likes to paint himself as the great compromiser. It’s an absurd caricature but one his public-relations firm, Wisconsin’s mainstream media, has been more than glad to perpetuate over the last two years.

The Democrat has shown time and time again why he is an extreme partisan leftist. His $91 billion, two-year budget proposal is the latest example.

Evers’ budget is built for conflict, not compromise. As conservative talk show host Dan O’Donnell put it, the governor’s massive spending plan is an unserious budget from an unserious governor. At least a governor unserious about compromise  — or reality.

He is quite serious about the 2022 gubernatorial election and the well-heeled liberal donors it will take to buy him another term. That’s why he didn’t really present a workable budget to a Republican-controlled Legislature; he offered a campaign ad to his far left base.

Thus, Evers has tossed all kinds of non-fiscal policy items in. He’s proposed killing Act 10, former Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s signature public sector collective-bargaining reform law that has saved taxpayers nearly $14 billion. Evers’ accompanying gifts to Big Labor include proposals to end the state’s prevailing wage reforms and the right-to-work law, and he wants to cap enrollment in the highly successful Wisconsin Parental Choice Program.

The governor offers something for all of his wacky leftist friends — from a costly climate change agenda to more gun control and painfully Woke “equity” programs. His spending plan, which burns through a healthy surplus, is wrapped in a $1 billion tax increase.

And Evers is going back to weed, the issue that helped him get elected in 2018. He proposes legalizing marijuana this time, a bridge way too far out for a lot of conservative lawmakers.

The governor’s idea of compromise is sending his gang in to beat the hell out of his enemies in a back-ally fistfight. It’s unlikely Evers will win this war, if conservatives stick together.
