In the online edition of the LaCrosse Tribune I started to read an article about Rep. Lee Nerison and his mixed emotions about Gov. Walker's budget. Starting with the second paragraph I read this:
Rep. Lee Nerison, R-Westby, says he is pleased by the Republican governor’s emphasis on agriculture but wary of education cuts.
Walker’s budget proposed what amounts to a freeze on public education spending.I want to know how someone can be "wary of education cuts" in a budget that "amounts to a freeze on public education spending". Since when is a freeze a cut?
I'd like to know if this is what the Representative said or if the reporter just tossed in his confusing views. Either way you'd think an editor would question the confusion the quoted part of the article raises, provided he read it.
