MADISON – Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement on the Bucks Arena package unveiled today:
“I was not at the table for these negotiations so I’m looking forward to learning the full details of the Bucks arena financing plan. I will be carefully reviewing the details and having discussions with our caucus in the days ahead.
“The unfortunate part of this situation is that Republicans have led our state into a fiscal mess that makes all our budgeting decisions more difficult. If Republicans had made better financial decisions like reclaiming our federal health care money, then our state wouldn’t be feeling this painful squeeze and would be more able to invest in such priorities as public schools, our universities and major projects.”
Press Releases by Peter Barca
"We should not be spending another cent defending unconstitutional legislative maps."
"Between the GOP leadership in the legislature and the governor, this week has delivered a double whammy for Wisconsin workers."
"It’s ironic that the Republicans are seemingly using the same lack of transparency that led to our state having one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in history"
“The GOP has let the taxpayers of Wisconsin down.”
“This is another shameless attack by Republicans on Wisconsin workers.”
The governor has bragged about his tax policies, while neglecting to mention that his cuts have largely benefitted the wealthy of our state.
