Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Tuesday said it would be a “bad idea” if Congress decides to bust budget caps for the next fiscal year and spend more.
On conservative host Laura Ingraham’s radio show, Walker was asked to react to an article published Tuesday by The Hill about pressure building among Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill to lift sequester caps.
“No, I think it’s a bad idea,” said Walker, who is expected to run for president next year.
“I think it’s one of those where, if we’re just a little less bad than the other side, voters are going to vote for people who are unapologetic about big government, and tax and spenders out there, and that’s what you get out of people like Hillary Clinton, the left,” he said.
Walker said, after he was elected governor of Wisconsin in 2010, he met with newly elected Republicans in the state legislature to discuss his mission.
“We turned around the big government interests. We got taxes under control; we got spending under control,” he added.
Just a few weeks ago, Walker indicated that, if elected president, he would want to lift the sequestration budget ceiling on the Pentagon.
