Lt. Gov. Kleefisch talks budget, possibility of a president from Wis.

Editor

Correction: A quote referencing "40 Little Caesar's pizzas" in the story below should have included an elipses midway through. The full quote from Lt.Gov. Kleefisch stated, "... If you saw a $100 bill on the sidewalk would you walk by it? No. And also, look at what $200 does for a family. For a mom like me that means 40 Little Caesar's pizzas."
The Commonwealth regrets the error.

   Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch visited Ripon briefly last week Thursday, trumpeting Gov. Scott Walker’s budget plans while on her way to an aerospace conference in Oshkosh.

   Kleefisch praised Walker’s plans, noting she believes Riponites have benefited — and will continue to benefit — from her superior’s economic efforts.

   “Obviously we want to foster an economic-development environment that both rural and urban communities can benefit from,” she said, noting tax credits, for instance, have led to some “very good results.”

   Such efforts, she said, have helped spur Wisconsin businesses, including communities such as Ripon.

   “I think a lot of our employers look forward to working with our department rather than against our government,” Kleefisch said, noting government can play a large role in whether businesses create jobs. “We have a lot of job creators out there who were hesitant [to hire while elections were ongoing] ... We need to stop with the political [fighting] and we need government stability.”

   She added the state surplus of $419 million “enabled us to give an income tax cut,” that, though criticized by some, will help average families, she argued. “I think the average family understands this is just a down payment on the future. Also, if you saw a $100 bill on the sidewalk, would you walk by it? I’m a mother of two. That would mean 40 Little Caesars pizzas. That makes a tangible difference.”

Sallie, do you speak of yourself as "unwilling to learn"?

Quoting Adam Umbreit, " But do you really think that our state is on the right track? If so will someone please come up with a truthful, researched thought about if our state is on the right track and post it under my comment. I would like to investigate others findings just to calm my mind and I may follow up with my findings to this news post."
Unfortunately, you cannot teach someone who is unwilling to learn.

I'm trying to understand why people keep believing in what our local government is feeding us. I say this because we we do not have a surplus in this state. Walker knows it and so does every person in office in Madison. The bottom line is that Wisconsin has done nothing but fall backwards. Members of Walkers own party are starting to see the dark side to where we are headed.

Believe me when I say that all I would like to see is to get good paying jobs and state climate back to full tilt just as everyone else does. But do you really think that our state is on the right track? If so will someone please come up with a truthful, researched thought about if our state is on the right track and post it under my comment. I would like to investigate others findings just to calm my mind and I may follow up with my findings to this news post.
