MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on the Assembly vote to sanction Scott Walker’s divisive power grab.
“Under cover of darkness, in a practice that Scott Walker denounced while he was campaigning for governor, the Republicans of the Wisconsin Assembly sold their soul. Upending seven decades of labor peace and putting Wisconsin up for sale to the likes of their Koch Brothers masters, they voted to sanction the most divisive piece of legislation in our state’s history. Democrats tried bravely, and in vain, to amend this putrid piece of legislation to the benefit of the working families of Wisconsin. But the Scott Walker march to the bottom continues.”
