Assembly Republicans Rubber Stamp Governor Walker’s $90 Million per Year Plan to Demonize the Poor
"If Republicans were serious about helping working families, they would increase access to transportation and childcare, expand education and job training opportunities, and raise wages."
MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison), ranking Democratic member on the Assembly Committee on Public Benefit Reform, issued the following statement in response to passage of 10 special session bills by the committee.
“These bills do nothing to address the needs of hardworking Wisconsin families who are living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make ends meet. If Republicans were serious about helping working families, they would increase access to transportation and childcare, expand education and job training opportunities, and raise wages.
Instead, Governor Walker and Republicans believe they can rile their base ahead of the 2018 election by demonizing those who need a little help, so they are all too willing to spend $90 million per year of taxpayer money plus millions more in start-up costs to do little more than kick struggling families when they are already down.”
