100 Days of Disgrace

MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on Scott Walker's first 100 days in office.

"We knew it was going to be bad, but nobody could have predicted it would be this bad. Scott Walker's first 100 days in office have been an unqualified disgrace.

First he killed jobs. Then he protected polluters and drunk drivers who kill. Next, he gave tax cuts to his rich buddies who didn't need it, at the same time finding cushy jobs for their children. He then began the job of dismantling Wisconsin's modern economy and longstanding commitment to education. And, finally, smirking before cameras, he introduced the most divisive legislation in the history of Wisconsin, employing equally divisive and underhanded methods to see it effected.

In his first 100 days, Scott Walker has torn Wisconsin in two in a deliberate plot to drive wages and benefits into the dirt and hasten the concentration of power in the hands of the wealthy few.

The good news is that Wisconsin has seen through Scott Walker and his schemes. The working families of Wisconsin are standing up and taking their state back.

Scott Walker's first 100 days were a disgrace. Let us hope for Wisconsin's sake he uses the next 100 to change from his disastrous course."
