Wisconsin Republicans Suddenly Interested in Democratic Proposals
MADISON -- After eight years of staunchly refusing to consider Democratic proposals to protect Wisconsinites’ health care, fully fund the state’s classrooms and provide a long-term solution to Wisconsin’s transportation crisis, Assembly Republicans have suddenly expressed support for such priorities in a letter sent to Governor Tony Evers today.
“Where was this ‘hand of bipartisanship’ the last eight years?” asked Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Courtney Beyer. “Now that Vos no longer has a rubber stamp in the Governor’s office, he’s chosen to steal the same Democratic proposals that he spent the last six years shooting down. Clearly Republicans care more about taking credit for Governor Evers and legislative Democrats’ ideas than actually solving the problems our state faces.”
