Wanker should pay off the $558 million in loans he took out in 2011 and 2012 instead of deferring the payments on them past the fiscal year so he can pretend there's a surplus that in reality never existed.
Wanker also deferred even more of the State's fiscal obligations into the future so he could make the bogus claim of a surplus now. http://www.newiprogressive.com/index.ph ... &Itemid=56
Wisconsin's $14.2 billion "Outstanding Debt"
MADISON - “The State is spending less.” “This budget took a deficit and turned it into a surplus.” “Wisconsin has paid off its debt.” Which of these are true statements regarding the new state budget?
The answer is NONE of the above.
... The third myth says the state eliminated the debt. This is false. In fact, state debt reaches record levels in the 2013-15 budget.
... In the 2011-13 legislative session, Governor Walker did not pay an even larger amount of debt payments coming due. Because debt payments were not made more money goes to pay off debt in this budget than ever before.
... As a result state debt reaches an all-time high of $14.7 billion
