COPY-Burke heightens criticism of Walker tax cut plan
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke says Gov. Scott Walker's tax cut proposal and agenda he outlined for the coming year doesn't do enough to create jobs in the state.
Burke told The Associated Press on Thursday that Walker's State of the State address in which he said the state was headed in the right direction was "short on reality and long on political spin."
Burke says Walker should do more for worker training and better target tax relief to the middle class.
She also says Walker should not be increasing the state's projected budget shortfall by $100 million as his plan would do. That would make the state's total expected shortfall to be about $800 million.
Burke says the state should not carry any ongoing structural deficit.
