Milwaukee County supervisors vote to fund several programs cut in Walker’s budget: drug treatment programs, the Interim Disability Assistance Program, a telephone help line, and the county Youth Sports Authority. Although Walker is not against the county sports program, there is not enough money to fund everything. He wants to prioritize mandated programs that provide direct service to families. However, according to the director of a local agency that helps the homeless.
Walker’s cut was an attempt to take away money from the poorest of the poor.
