I have some incredible news to share with you. We’ve been running the best, largest Get Out The Vote Operation Wisconsin has ever seen, and it is paying off.
By now you’ve probably heard the news that sleazy, outside special interests funded by the Koch Brothers are bussing in paid supporters to prop up Scott Walker's "divide and conquer" agenda of job loss and disunity.
A video recently went viral of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker telling a billionaire donor in January 2011 that he planned to employ a "divide and conquer" strategy to take away working peoples' rights -- a move that ultimately sparked historic protests and led to the upcoming June 5 recall election that close to one million voters demanded.
The recall of Scott Walker on June 5th will be one of the most important elections in the history of Wisconsin. It’s also the first step in taking down extreme, right-wing Republicans all over the nation. All eyes are on Wisconsin as we prepare to win this fight for working families everywhere.
After months of historic division, job loss, criminal corruption and partisan power grabs, Tom Barrett will put Wisconsin first and end Scott Walker’s ideological civil war.
Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca offered this week's Democratic Weekly Radio Address. The topic is Gov. Walker's terrible jobs record, including a
review of more than 20 years of federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) seasonally adjusted job data that shows Wisconsin has never led the nation in job loss as far back the current methodology accurately accounts.
Scott Walker and his Republican Party are up to their usual dirty tricks in a desperate attempt to cling to power and subvert the democratic process. Recently, the Government Accountability Board certified the names of Republicans – posing as Democrats – to appear on the ballot.
Think about what you do in a typical 24 hours.
If you were Scott Walker, you’d kill 24 jobs - a job every single hour of every single day. Since Scott Walker took office, Wisconsin has led the nation in job loss for a total of 10,200 Wisconsin jobs lost – just about a job every hour.
At the same time that Wisconsin is leading the nation in job loss under Scott Walker, his Republican Party has salted the earth for economic development and instead focused on enacting extreme social policy that has devastated programs critical to women and children’s health, interfered in the relationship between women and their doctors and stripped pay equity protections for women, veterans, seniors and disabled workers.
