“Last week, the Wisconsin Joint Committee on Finance approved a budget proposal that slaps struggling Wisconsinites with another whopping $2.1 billion in taxes and fees – only months after a February $1.2 billion tax hike.
The $2.1 billion budget includes tax hikes on income, investment, capital gains, manufacturing, tobacco product, oil and energy, retail sales, agriculture, game hunting, education, telecommunications, transportation, and veterans care – over 80 new taxes and fees that will hit Wisconsin families and small businesses when they can least afford it."
