I love Scott Walker & the reforms he and the WI conservatives have done, but this idea to give a quicky $100 per child tax credit to parents before the election reeks of the type of vote buying & game playing we've ripped on dems for doing for 30 years.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) January 25, 2018
The Walker $100 child tax credit would even go to those parents who didn't pay in, meaning our 'hand up, not hand out' governor is creating a form of tax revenue welfare of the sort dems dream up. It's redistributionist and wrong. Lawmakers should reject it.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) January 25, 2018
Litmus test on Walker's $100 tax credit: If democrats had proposed it, we'd rip it as redistributionist, an attempt to pick winners and losers, and an attempt to buy votes.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) January 25, 2018
It is when the GOP proposes it, too.
Unless I read it wrong, Walker's Child Tax Credit would also be giving back a surplus that is only-projected-at this point. We shouldn't be 'spending' money we don't really have yet.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) January 25, 2018
