Mr. Barrett's conspicuous omission

Yesterday morning, I listened to a radio program that seemed like a Town Hall celebration of Tom Barrett's Gubernatorial bid, which was broadcast live from my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. 

I couldn't listen to the whole program.  However, the thirty minute portion I heard featured Mr. Barrett's diatribe against Wisconsin's $2.7B structural deficit and his inspired plan to end it which includes tax increases on "the wealthy."

Here's what bothers me...

Not once in the first thirty minutes of Mr. Barrett's monologue, however, did I hear a single reference to a spending cut.  If I missed such a bombshell in the remaining minutes of the program, please let me know.
