Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Walker and Green on the gas tax

As Spivak and Bice report in their column, it turns out that Republican gubernatorial candidates Scott Walker and Mark Green haven't been so supportive of repealing the automatic gas tax increase after all. When both served in the state legislature, they opposed efforts to end the automatic increase.

Rep. Spencer Black (D-Madison) has introduced such a proposal every legislative session to end it, but it hasn't seen the light of day. Now that Green and Walker are running for governor, they're simply trying to outdo each other in the press. Just remember that when they both had the chance to change the law in the past, they were against doing so. Another example of actions speaking louder than words.
