Rep Zupkus: Democrats back taxpayers into a corner

The state is now entering more than forty-five days without a budget in place, which has given the governor the ability to run the state’s finances without the legislature’s approval, and he has taken this opportunity to pursue his reckless budget agenda.

If we go any longer without a budget in place, our hard working middle-class communities will suffer the brunt of the governor’s cuts. But, sadly, there is no urgency from the House and Senate Democrat leaders to take over the budget reins from the governor, and the calls from Republicans to do so are being ignored.

Since January, Republicans have been willing to negotiate with Democrat leaders and have met with them over and over again to find common ground on a budget proposal. We have produced details of four no-tax-increase budget proposals, but still have not seen one completed budget document from the House or Senate Democrat Caucuses. When we ask to see their line-by-line budget, they ask us to exchange more ideas with them, which provides them more time and cover to avoid making difficult decisions.
