"Balanced the budget without raising taxes"


The new GOP-Tea Governors' ad for the domineering Wisconsin Depublicans claims that they've "balanced the budget without raising taxes".

Without getting into theory, ask yourself what's the difference between these:
1. Someone taxes your salary 10% for blah blah blah
2. Someone asks you to take a wage cut of 10% for blah blah blah

They did indeed "raise taxes", didn't they?

Raising taxes during a downturn? Hooverville...
