Rep. Taylor to GOP: Where’s the “aggressive” jobs agenda?
State Rep. Chris Taylor called out Governor Scott Walker and legislative Republicans for their post-election out of the gate “aggressive” legislative agenda.
MADISON – Today, State Representative Chris Taylor (D-Madison) called out Governor Scott Walker and legislative Republicans for their post-election out of the gate “aggressive” legislative agenda which seems to fixate more on privatizing public education and making sure the Government Accountability Board is composed of partisan political hacks than creating jobs to jump start Wisconsin’s sluggish economy. Taylor released the following statement:
“Yet, the pro-voucher group, American Federation for Children, led by corrupt former Republican Speaker Scott Jensen, spent hundreds of thousands of dollars buying local races without focusing on the one issue providing the basis for this group’s existence – further privatizing public education. Let’s hope that Republicans will get serious about job creation and closing the extreme income inequality we see in this state rather than doling out political favors that do nothing but reward campaign contributors while hurting our state.”
