Gov. Walker Flies Around Wisconsin to Tell Locals How He’ll Be Sending Their Money to Taiwan

‘Gov. Scott Walker Is Taking Our Money and Giving It to His New Friend’

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements about Gov. Scott Walker’s fly around tour today to let taxpayers in all parts of Wisconsin know how he will be taking more than $3 billion of our tax dollars and sending it to a Taiwanese billionaire.

“Gov. Walker is taking our money and giving it to his new best friend. But the record shows Scott Walker’s and Foxconn’s records are equally atrocious on delivering for workers and taxpayers.

“Gov. Walker campaigning around the state isn’t going to change the fact that doling out $250 million a year to a multi-billion dollar foreign corporation to get $180 million in state and local taxes is, on its face, a bad deal for us. Gov. Walker has to some explaining to do to taxpayers in every corner of the state who will foot the bill for this deal on the Illinois border.”
