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.
