“With over 70 percent of Americans disapproving of the job Republicans are doing leading Congress, it’s no surprise that Congressman Ribble doesn’t want to face the voters in 2016.
“During his six years in Washington, Ribble supported massive tax breaks for big corporations and the wealthy, voted for a right-wing plan that would essentially end Medicare, and protected companies that ship American jobs overseas.
“Ribble’s retirement from this swing district represents a tremendous opportunity for Democrats in 2016. In the coming weeks, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will be working with local leaders and grassroots activists to recruit and support a top notch candidate to represent the 8th Congressional District.”

"Not only is this proposal out of touch with the needs of everyday Wisconsinites, it does nothing to move our state forward."
"The bold ideas announced by legislative Democrats highlight our shared values and are exactly what our state needs right now."
"Speaker Ryan's bill will make everyday Americans pay more money for fewer benefits, and leave many of his fellow Wisconsinites without any health care at all."
