EAU CLAIRE – Dana Wachs called out Gov. Scott Walker for focusing on Foxconn at the expense of Wisconsin’s long standing industries and businesses:

“Gov. Walker’s announcements are another round of election year gimmicks. Wisconsin lags the nation in job creation and worker wages have been stagnant for far too long. We need a Governor who is focused on job retention from day one not 2,590 days into his second term.

“Manufacturers and paper mills have closed every year since Scott Walker took office resulting in thousands of layoffs. Unfortunately, Gov. Walker has been fixated on Foxconn and only now, as he faces the prospect of a tough reelection, is tweeting out  a plan for more corporate giveaways in a desperate attempt to save his campaign.

“Wisconsin needs a Governor who will put in place a sustainable economic development plan that supports Wisconsin businesses, grows worker wages and expands opportunities in every corner of the state.”

    everyone by now should know Scott Walker moves to the middle in order to get elected and then immediately goes far right as soon as he wins. He then has the audacity to justify his misdeeds with untruths and finger pointing. Notice I don’t call them outright lies, he is very clever using ALEX to justify and stretch the truth to his means. It’s time for him to go. Best to also split the legislators parties also so they have no choice but cooperate in non partisan ways.

    Career Politican Scott Walker is a liar and a schemer. He got drunk on power and FoxConned Wisconsin! Career Politician Walker has never worked a day in his adult life in the private sector. Why when he can mooch off the Big Government for 25 years!? Now this crooked schemer wants to be “Governor for Life.”

    It’s time to tell Walker to take a Hike!

    Dump Walker 2018!
