The Beginning of the End for Paul Ryan's Immoral Budget

May 23, 2011

MADISON – Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following the shocking upset victory in New York’s 26th Congressional District, which turned entirely on opposition to Paul Ryan’s immoral budget.

“The shocking election results tonight show it is the beginning of the end for Paul Ryan’s immoral budget. The New York vote turned on an immoral plan to end Medicare and Medicaid hatched on Wall Street and in Washington by someone who is supposed to be representing Wisconsin. Its rejection tonight shows how vulnerable every single Republican in Wisconsin is, but especially Paul Ryan himself, for siding against Wisconsin’s working families.”
