Tool of the Week: Tony Evers, the far left’s tool

MADISON — In his budget address last week, Gov. Tony Evers spoke the language of the left’s crisis politics.

“When this pandemic is over,” he said, “we could go back to the way things always were and always have been, or we can take this moment to demand the future we dream.”

What the Democrat meant is the future his leftist friends’ dream.

His $91 billion far left budget is a nightmare for Wisconsin taxpayers, manufacturers, retirees and anyone who has had quite enough of the destructive and politically motivated “social justice” movement.

First of all, let’s look at what’s in Evers’ rearview mirror: A Wisconsin that was much more prosperous, much more hopeful and much more free. In the span of less than two years, this governor has driven an extreme liberal agenda in an attempt to saddle businesses with more regulation, homeowners and workers with higher taxes, and cities with higher crime rates and disorder. For the better part of a year, this power-hungry administration and its local allies have locked down much of Wisconsin, shut down “non-essential businesses” and places of worship, and wiped out untold American dreams.

Evers’ future calls for an estimated $1 billion in tax increases, hits to retirement income, caps on a highly successful tax credit that has kept the state manufacturing industry humming, and an extreme climate change agenda that would leave Wisconsin families with significantly higher energy costs.

After so many failures, Evers recently appropriated the success of his Republican opponents in the Legislature. They crafted and passed the legislation that stopped Evers’ Department of Revenue from taxing the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans as the administration had intended. Evers was forced to sign it. Had the Legislature not acted, those businesses that needed the federal funding to keep their employees working would have been forced to pay a combined $480 million in taxes. Evers and his team were just fine with that. In fact, they were banking on the tax money to back the governor’s behemoth budget.

The governor’s budget plan that serves as a down payment on his future “dream” is owned by the radical left. He is their tool.

For so many reasons, Gov. Tony Evers is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
