'Gov. Walker Has Failed Wisconsin'

Continuing Job Loss, Decimation of Education, Health Care, Tax Hikes on Seniors, Working Poor Are Walker's Legacy

Madison -- One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements about the unprecedented grassroots uprising against the failed policies of Gov. Scott Walker. 

"In just one year, Gov. Scott Walker has failed the people of Wisconsin as no other elected official in our state has. Continuing job loss, while nationally the rest of the country gains jobs. The largest cuts to public education of our students in our state's history. More than 65,000 people including 29,000 children about to lose their health care. Radical attacks on the rights of Wisconsin workers and voters. And to top it off, an unconscionable $70 million hike on taxes for seniors and the working poor, while Walker signed $2.3 billion in new tax breaks for corporations and the rich. Walker tore Wisconsin apart, but the people of Wisconsin will put us back together."
