It is shitty, but possibly not totally unexpected for a Republican governor?

Also, it still has to go through the legislature, and they get to play with the money first.

Some of the cuts are explainable - like, Department of Commerce is completely defunded because he privatized it.
UW System gets a huge cut, most of it is supposed to be absorbed by splitting UW-Madison off - administrative money, etc. [Obviously, it remains to be seen whether Walker's $$ is true or not.]

Probably the most helpful document in the coming days/weeks will be when the Legislative Fiscal Bureau posts its analysis online.
