One Wisconsin Now Debuts ‘Meet the Majority’ Cataloging New Legislature’s Extremism, Failed Policies
MADISON, Wis. — The extremism and failed policies advocated by members of the new right-wing Wisconsin legislative majority are available at www.MeetTheMajority.com, a project of One Wisconsin Now.

MADISON, Wis. — A call for reform of Milwaukee Public Schools by Wisconsin Assembly Reps. Brett Davis (R-Monroe) and Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa), ignores recent anti-MPS votes by the duo, including the 2007-09 Assembly Republican budget which would have slashed a plan to give $15 million to Milwaukee Public Schools and an additional $85 million to […]
I fully intended on showing up last night at an Oconomowoc country club to hear Leah Vukmir talk about ‘current and proposed legislation affecting Wisconsin health care and insurance’. If not for my squawking eight-month old baby boy, I’d have had a listen. Vukmir, herself a state rep eligible for taxpayer funded health insurance, has […]
Heather Blish introduced herself to Rep. Steve Kagen’s Town Hall last week in true Sarah Palin fashion — holding her baby as prop and claiming she is “just a mom” with real concerns about health care reform. Her ‘regular mom’ act was so authentic she even got on the teevee news! You could almost hear […]
MADISON, Wis. — The awarding of ultra-conservative Rep. Leah Vukmir with the American Legislative Exchange Council’s “Legislator of the Year” reflects her embrace of extremist policies which increase pollution, hurt workers and prevent access to affordable health care for all. “For the right-wing fringe, Leah Vukmir is the total package,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin […]
When she’s not desperately trying to prevent the people of Wisconsin from having access to the same health care we pay to allow her to have, Wisconsin’s Michelle-Bachmann-in-training, GOP Rep. Leah Vukmir takes every opportunity to suck up to big business and industry, particularly polluters. During today’s debate and passage on AB 281 to restrict […]
For some reason, Wispolitics.com offered a lil’ nugget in its afternoon summary about noted minority vote suppressor and GOP state party chair Reince Priebus doing a planned closed-door meeting with ‘business leaders about their concerns.’ ‘It’s closed to the media’ the Wispo gang reports. While my first response was ‘so?’ after thinking for a nanosecond, […]
Making its rounds at the capitol this year is AB38: a bill devised to exclude from taxable income gains from a Wisconsin business. As the Legislative Reference Bureau understands it, a corporation ‘may exclude the capital gain realized from the sale of any asset held more than one year.’ It estimates the bill would decrease […]
Who Do You Think Will be the First WI State Leggie to Issue Anti-Iowa Press Release? Nass? Krusick? Gundrum? Lazich? Suder? Hubler? Grothman? Vukmir? Fitzgerald (lil’ or big) Who? Gonna be a battle to the bottom – vote in the comments. My money’s on big Fitzgerald, we’ll see.
You may have seen this story last week in the Wisconsin State Journal about a four-way jabfest between One Wisconsin Now, Mark Pocan, Nass, and the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (Leah Vukmir took a swing too, but her press release was so ridiculous nobody really took it serious). The rundown is basically as follows: OWN called […]
Another headshaker from the Assembly Republican braintrust — this time bringing the same budget shackles to Wisconsin which helped drive California into its near economic collapse and nearly killed a bipartisan solution to their woes. Leah Vukmir and Rich Zipperer, who apparently have created their own Assembly Bad Ideas Caucus, are now pushing for a […]
