Mary Burke weighs in on idea to eliminate Wisconsin's income tax


Eau Claire (WQOW)-  On Tuesday Governor Walker announced that his administration will look at whether it's feasible to eliminate Wisconsin's income tax. 

That same day one of the governor's challengers, democratic candidate Mary Burke, spoke against the tax idea. "I think it's too extreme," says Burke. "You know I believe we have to hold the line on taxes. I would do that as governor but we also have to make sure we are making the investments that actually fuel our economy. That's how you reduce tax rates, by growing it. If you have a bigger pie, taxes will take out a smaller piece of it."
