As governor, Scott Walker has slashed funds for renewable energy, put his own climate change denier in charge of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and signed legislation that lets special interests get away with pollution. During his failed presidential campaign, he even advocated for dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency.
Wisconsin is expected to run out of funding within six months but Governor Walker still hasn’t said anything about saving this crucial program for the 171,000 Wisconsin kids who rely on CHIP for health insurance. Who is this guy?!
In 2012, Wisconsin Democrats won 174,000 more votes for State Assembly seats, but Republicans won 60 seats while Democrats only took 39. With their seats locked down, it’s not about the people of our state anymore. It’s about furthering the political agenda paid for by special interests. Period.
Andy knows how tough it can be to deal with health insurance. He has Crohn’s disease, and knows what an important step it was for pre-existing conditions to be covered under the Affordable Care Act. Andy and his family have a plan they purchased on the federal exchange, just like so many others in Wisconsin.
Today is Citizenship Day. And unlike Governor Walker, I’m fighting President Trump’s decision to repeal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) because this is a bad deal for Wisconsin and is bad for Wisconsin families.
It’s past time for new leadership that recognizes the value of unions, and no one has shown that more than Andy Gronik. He’s always believed the best way to get stuff done is to listen to workers on the factory floor, like me, my parents, and my union brothers and sisters.
Andy Gronik knows Scott Walker’s deal is nothing but a con for Wisconsin because he has walked factory floors with workers and has appraised hundreds of manufacturing businesses. He knows when a deal will work and when it won’t.
