Scott Walker’s budget to raise taxes on poor, middle class and students

There’s nothing quite like asking students, the middle class and the poor to fund tax cuts for business. Didn’t this guy promise not to raise taxes? More from ThinkProgress:

Low and middle income people would lose tax credits worth about $49.4 million over two years, the new Legislative Fiscal Bureau report said.

Those affected most by Walker’s proposal would include low-income families who qualify for the earned income tax credit program, and low-income homeowners who receive tax rebates under the homestead tax credit.
