Republicans don't want effective government, they want limited government

Limited to what they think is right for the rest of us.

Statement on Joint Finance Committee Decision to Create Special Needs Vouchers for Students with Disabilities.  (News release from Survival Coalition of Wisconsin Disability Organizations, 5/19/2015) 

'Eleventh hour'.  'Without discussion'.  'Lack of transparency'.  It's what they do.
Today’s announcement by Co-Chairs of the Joint Finance Committee that they will create a Special Needs Voucher program despite major objections to the policy amounts to a significant show of disrespect to families raising children with disabilities in Wisconsin. The fact that the proposal was inserted into the budget at the eleventh hour without discussion at recent budget hearings or creating an opportunity for families or advocates to review indicates a concerning lack of transparency.
