Wisconsin Dem Gov Candidates Embrace Anti-Jobs Policies That Would Take The State Backwards

Instead of proposing new ideas to move Wisconsin forward, extreme Democrats remain committed to undoing progress.

As they grow further out-of-touch with Wisconsin voters, Democrat gubernatorial candidates continue to stake their campaigns on undoing the positive progress the state has enjoyed under Gov. Scott Walker. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that numerous Democrats, including Tony Evers, Dana Wachs, Kathleen Vinehout, and Mahlon Mitchell, would sign legislation repealing Act 10, a 2011 law signed by Governor Walker that has resulted in $5 billion in savings for Wisconsin taxpayers, if they were elected to the governorship this November.

Instead of proposing new ideas to move Wisconsin forward, extreme Democrats remain committed to undoing progress while attempting to bring policies that would kill jobs and unfairly burden working families. Wisconsin Democrats would take the state backwards.

Former state Rep. Kelda Roys of Madison, former Democratic Party of Wisconsin chairman Matt Flynn, Rep. Dana Wachs of Eau Claire, Sen. Kathleen Vinehout of Alma and former Wisconsin Democracy Campaign executive director Mike McCabe said they would actively seek to repeal the collective-bargaining-related provisions of the law.

State schools Superintendent Tony Evers and Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin president Mahlon Mitchell, who earned statewide recognition after leading protests against the law, said they would sign legislation repealing the law, but acknowledged the task would be impossible with a Republican-controlled Legislature and would instead find ways to enhance employees’ say in their workplace.
