So why did you vote for it?

No one seems to be happy about the budget repair bill.

Republicans are not happy

Sen. Neal Kedzie, R-Elkhorn, said he was disappointed neither party had the backbone to further address the state's debt.

"That budget package is nothing more than a version of the movie 'Groundhog Day' - only a smaller package," Kedzie said. "We continue to repeat history by borrowing, stealing and running away from the true issue, and that's cutting spending in state government."

Democrats are not happy

Kreuser said lawmakers missed opportunities to make the deal better by imposing a new tax on hospitals to generate more federal money or paying for a new commuter rail line connecting Kenosha, Racine and Milwaukee.

The governor is not happy.

As he has repeatedly for the past several weeks, Doyle said he has "significant problems" with provisions in the Legislature's proposal to push $125 million in school aids off into the next biennium.

So why in the world did you guys pass this thing????
