Vos 'conservatives priorities' spend, give away a lot of public money

Four recent Robin Vos budget tweets elevate repetition but divert the debate:
"It funds our priorities in a conservative way."
So deleting well-testing funds and dangling a perk in front of a key Wisconsin legislator at budget writing time are among conservative priorities. 

Who knew?

Oh, and what about these 'conservative' moves?
The Wisconsin Legislature's Republican-controlled budget committee voted Tuesday to stand by its decision to reject Gov. Tony Evers' plan to expand Medicaid, turning down more than $1 billion in federal funding and $324 million in state money savings.
A conservative estimate of those wasted dollars comes to about $1.3 billion.

And, for good measure, throw in the $4+billion ticketed for Foxconn, where there's some dirt being around - - and lttle else - - and the I-94 death trap Vos lobbied hard to 'improve' sprawl across his district.

You know. Conservative priorities:
WI GOP Assembly Speaker Robin Vos managed in a state without two spare potholes-filling nickels to rub together to steer to and through his district a quarter of a billion federal and state road-and-interchange widening dollars that will trigger sprawl beyond bulldozed Mount Pleasant farms even if Foxconn never diverts a gallon of Lake Michigan water to produce a single big screen LCD TV.
Though, in fairness, that's less than what we know Vos has recently spent from the public treasury on priorities like more staff, high-priced attorneys and taxpayer-paid travel, enumerated here.

Vos is a nut. He must be to say such crazy things.
