Gov. Scott Walker and Republicans Raid Veteran Home Fund
Wisconsin Republicans give lip-service to the public when it comes to supporting our veterans.
MADISON – Actions speak louder than words – Gov. Scott Walker never got that memo.
Wisconsin Republicans give lip-service to the public when it comes to supporting our veterans, but Republican legislators voted to limit grants to local veteran services offices, and over the next two years Gov. Walker’s administration plans on raiding $18.6 million in funding from veterans nursing homes – that’s on top of a recently announced $12 million raid.
“Scott Walker is making the wrong kind of history by making the biggest cut we have ever seen to veteran nursing homes,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Wednesday. “Veterans put their lives on the line to defend this country and they are entitled to have quality services available to them when they come home. Republicans need to honor the promise we make to our veterans. Scott Walker’s two-faced politics leave veterans and everyday Wisconsinites behind. Walker has shown his one priority is only helping those at the very top.”
