The Republican Party of Wisconsin launched a new radio ad on Tuesday to promote the tax cuts under Governor Scott Walker. The ad’s narrator says:
Thanks to Scott Walker, taxes are going down.
Taxes on a median valued home will be lower next year than they were in 2014.
And Governor Walker and Republicans even eliminated an entire tax – a huge win for hard-working families.
Some $8 billion in tax cuts means more money in our pockets – helping families spend their money as they see fit…like on school supplies or a weekend getaway.
With Scott Walker putting taxpayers first, our future is bright.
Thank you, Governor Walker!

The ad comes as state Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, D-Alma, joins a crowded field of Democrats running for governor against Walker. The Republican Party also launched an online campaign ad and a website criticizing her when she announced her candidacy on Monday. In 2008, Vinehout supported the largest tax increase in state history to pay for government-run universal health insurance. The plan would have cost $15.2 billion the first year.
