MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross issued the following statements on the Assembly Republicans budget gimmicks announcement.
“For 14 years, Republicans used one iron fist to rule the Assembly and used the other to grab as much special interest cash as they could carry. Assembly Republicans used our tax dollars to enrich their donors and reduce the rights of workers, the ability of schools to finance education and prevent real health care reform from passage.
“With leaders like Scott Walker and Scott Jensen, they stretched Wisconsin’s finances beyond the breaking point. Following these Assembly Republicans further down the path of failure would be an enormous mistake to say the least.”
