Wisconsin has been punished with some of the worst roads in the nation because of Governor Walker’s selfish refusal to help repair our failing infrastructure. Our communities have suffered, our schools have suffered, our state economy has suffered, and our citizens out of pocket repair expenses have suffered. Wisconsin has been, and continues to look for a true leader on transportation funding and Governor Walker’s inability to make a decision still doesn’t fix the roads.

    The statement that Wis’ roads are “some of the worst in the nation” is a gross lie that has been repeated far too often for far too long by far too many people. I’ve been driving around this state and other states more than enough to make an objective comparison and to expose this statement as the deceitful political propaganda that it is.

    The new estimates for vehicle repairs on Wisconsin roads are going higher every year. Right now it’s over $700.00 a year added to repairing our vehicles in Wisconsin and going to get a lot worse with this Governor tying to say whatever it takes to get elected. Walker never cared about the people of this state just big money who really runs our state government. Our roads under this GOP rule has gutted our future. It will take generations to repair the damage. Now we are on the hook for Foxconn for 4.5 billion and counting.

    One person driving around is not hard evidence. I can’t believe that has to be pointed out. I can’t believe you think one person’s partisan statement is credible evidence.
