Career Politician Scott Walker Will Say and Do Anything to Win an Election

MADISON, Wis. — Last week, after admitting he was losing the race for governor and before he even knew who he would face in the November election, Scott Walker personally launched a desperate, racist attack on Democrats. Today, Walker released his first general election ad based entirely on a poll conducted by his campaign the last week of July, which One Wisconsin Now obtained a copy of the questions asked. One Wisconsin Now provided the following fact check on the ad.

“Scott Walker admitted he’s losing so instead of running on his record, he’s running on what he didn’t do,” said Scot Ross, One Wisconsin Now Executive Director. “His poll-driven pledges are as hollow as his 2014 election year ad promising to leave reproductive health care decisions ‘to a woman and her doctor.”

Walker Election Year Ad Promise: Provide $1,000 tax credit for five years to cover student loan interest ($5,000)

Fact: Walker opposes creating a state authority to help allow people to refinance student loan debt. [Wisconsin State Journal, 9/28/16]. In 2016, Wisconsin college graduates graduated with an average of $30,059 in student debt, Wisconsin ranked 17th in the nation for average college debt, and ranked 6th for percentage of students graduating with student loan debt at 67%. [TICAS Student Debt and the Class of 2016 report, p.8, September 2017]

Make apprenticeships available to students in 7th & 8th grade

Fact: Walker enacted the biggest cuts to education in Wisconsin’s history, including a 30 percent cut to state technical colleges. [Politifact, 2/19/12]

Walker Election Year Ad Promise: Provide working families tax credit to pay for daycare

Fact: Walker refused to support legislation introduced by Democrats to create a child care income tax credit. [2017 Senate Bill 37] SB 37 would have created a nonrefundable individual income tax credit for certain expenses for household and dependent care services, including costs for in-home care, daycare, and before-school and after-school care for school age children. A similar bill was introduced in 2015 as well. [2015 Senate Bill 311]

Walker Election Year Ad Promise: Provide low income seniors refundable tax credit to stay in their own homes

Fact: Walker’s 2011-13 budget repealed Homestead Tax Credit indexing. [LFB comparative summary of 2011-13 budget, Vol 2., p. 622-623] The Wisconsin Budget Project estimated this would raise property taxes for Wisconsin seniors by 28%. [Wisconsin Budget Project 2012 Issue Brief #2, p.1] The Wisconsin Budget Project more recently estimated 11,400 households would have tax increases averaging $614 under the 2017-19 budget due to significantly reducing funding for Homestead Tax Credit. [Wisconsin Budget Project Updated Summary of Proposed Budget for Taxes and Revenue, p. 2, 9/14/17]

“Fifty-year-old Scott Walker has been a career politician in office for 25 years who will say and do anything to win an election,” concluded Ross.

According to CFIS, Scott Walker has spent more than $1.5 million in polling as part of the $100 million his personal gubernatorial campaign has raised and spent since 2009.

Lisa Posthumus Lyons Represents Decade of #TotalGOPControl Failure
Working families, democracy, and public education got sold out by Posthumus Lyons
 
MICHIGAN — Bill Schuette’s selection of Lisa Posthumus Lyons as a running mate represents a doubling-down on failed Republican policies that have stacked the deck in favor of shady corporate donors and rigged the rules against Michigan’s working families. 
 
“Lisa Posthumus Lyons represents more of the same from Bill Schuette: doing the bidding of corporate donors like the DeVos family while undermining the people’s access to the ballot, attacking public schools, and pushing GOP policies that have harmed working families and our communities,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “During her time in the legislature, Lisa Posthumus Lyons called teachers ‘pigs’, spearheaded the effort to expand the failed Education Achievement Authority, pushed a bill to muddy Michigan’s democracy with more corporate money, and put up obstacles between Michiganders’ right to ballot initiatives and use their voice on election day. Posthumus Lyons — just like Bill Schuette — has a record that shows she has the wrong priorities for Michigan.”

Scott Walker Failure Files Updated and Online
One Wisconsin Now Provides Library Documenting 25 Years of Scott Walker’s Cronyism, Corruption and Incompetence

MADISON, Wis. — As the 50-year-old Scott Walker ramps up his increasingly desperate bid to extend his quarter century in political office, One Wisconsin Now today announced the update of the Scott Walker Failure Files. The Failure Files is One Wisconsin Now’s massive, online archive documenting the cronyism, corruption and incompetence that has marred Gov. Scott Walker’s career and can be found at: OneWisconsinNow.org/Scott-Walker.

“Scott Walker has had his backside in what he calls the ‘government hammock’ for 25 years,” said One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross. “At the Failure Files we’re putting his record on display, documenting the cronyism, corruption and incompetence from 1993 through the present day.”

The Failure Files, which is the largest online database of Scott Walker research in America, include a database of news clips, searchable by issue, covering his gubernatorial years, and additional information from his adult lifetime in political office as a member of the State Assembly and Milwaukee County Executive. Users can also link to special reports on topics like his use of the quasi-private Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) to benefit donors to his campaigns and how the Bradley Foundation, until recently run by Walker’s campaign chair, has underwritten the Wisconsin right-wing noise machine.

Ross concluded, “Scott Walker has shown he is willing to do or say anything to try to win an election. He’s never been more desperate than he is today, and with the Failure Files we’re making public a tool for people to separate the fact from the fiction as career politician Scott Walker pulls out all the stops to try to save his bacon.”

Jeff Johnson Wins Primary, Showing How Extreme the GOP Has Become

Minnesotans have already rejected him twice, and will again in November

MINNESOTA – Today, Tea Party Republican and two time statewide loser Jeff Johnson defeated Tim Pawlenty in the Primary Election, proving how extreme the Minnesota Republican Party has become.

“Minnesotans, including Republican primary voters, soundly said no to another four years of Tim Pawlenty after we reminded them about his harmful record as governor. But Jeff Johnson’s record isn’t any better and we can’t trust him to do what’s best for our families or our state. Minnesotans rejected Johnson’s harmful agenda before and they will again,” said Joe Davis, executive director of Alliance for a Better Minnesota. “If elected governor, Johnson would take away health care from thousands of Minnesotans, including people with preexisting conditions. He would bring Donald Trump’s disastrous tax plan to Minnesota, which slashes health care programs for children, seniors, and people with disabilities to give huge tax breaks to the wealthiest and corporations. Jeff Johnson would be a disaster for Minnesota.”

RELEASE: Groups Call on Rep Scott to Apologize for Racially Offensive Comments

Groups Call on Rep Scott to Apologize for Racially Offensive Comments

APIAVote-Michigan and Others Disappointed by Election Day Insults

MICHIGAN — Today, over a dozen community groups called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize to the immigrant community, the Asian American community, and the residents of Senate District 1 for comments she made recently on Primary Election Day, August 7.

Elected officials should be held to high standards of professional conduct, and respect people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. No elected official or candidate for office, regardless of political affiliation, should use stereotypical imagery or language. The use of these stereotypes is counter to the progress our country has made over past decades to encourage respect for all communities. On August 7, individuals from other campaigns and organizations observed the following:

  • In the early morning at Bethany Lutheran Church in Detroit, Rep. Scott called one of Rep. Stephanie Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant”, saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country”.
  • Later on in the day, Rep. Scott was talking to a voter and said “these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.” Further, she said it “disgusts” her “seeing Black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.”
  • In the early evening at East English Village Preparatory Academy, Rep. Scott approached another campaign’s volunteer and told her not to vote for the “ching-chang”, apparently referring to Rep. Chang. She was overheard telling multiple voters “Vote for me. Don’t vote for the ching-chong!” She also told Rep. Chang’s campaign staff that she called Chang’s volunteers “ching-chongs”, saying “I called them ching-chongs. That’s what they are!”

“In these times of rampant xenophobia, racism and intolerance, it is extremely disappointing to hear of an elected official speak to voters in this way,” said Aamina Ahmed, Executive Director of APIAVote – Michigan. “We all need to work together to combat prejudice, bias and systems of discrimination, not fall prey to them. We cannot let stereotyping and stigmatization become normalized by ignoring it. It is exceedingly upsetting to learn that the comments were made by a woman of color. We can build inclusive and cohesive communities that recognize diversity of all forms as a strength vs a weakness and hope that Rep. Scott apologizes and joins us in this work.”

The organizations calling for an apology are: Asian & Pacific Islander American Vote – Michigan, African Bureau of Immigration & Social Affairs, Association of Chinese Americans, American Citizens for Justice, Cortland Street Block Club, Detroit Action Commonwealth, Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation, Engage Michigan, Equality Michigan, Fair Elections Center, Filipino American Community Council of Michigan, Good Jobs Now, Michigan League for Public Policy, Michigan United, Michigan Voice, MOSES, Mothering Justice, Pontiac Policy Council and Progress Michigan

Community Leaders Call on PUCO to Reject AT&T’s Request to Drop Out of Lifeline Program

 

Despite raking in $20 billion from the corporate tax cut bill, AT&T is trying to abandon over 10,000 of Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens

Community Leaders Call on PUCO to Reject AT&T’s Request to Drop Out of Lifeline Program
Despite raking in $20 billion from the corporate tax cut bill, AT&T is trying to abandon over 10,000 of Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens

Columbus— Today, leaders from the NAACP, Ohio Poverty Law Center, Alliance for Retired Americans, ProgressOhio and Communications Workers of America District 4 called on the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to reject AT&T’s request to drop out of the Lifeline program.  AT&T’s abandonment of the Lifeline program, which subsidizes vital phone and internet services, would harm over 10,000 of their Ohioa customers – including the elderly, veterans and low-income households.

AT&T’s abandonment of Lifeline in Ohio would weaken the essential program and disrupt the ability of seniors, veterans and families with children to stay connected with employers, schools and healthcare providers. Ohioans are already making their voice heard, and ProgressOhio has collected over 1,000 comments opposing AT&T Ohio’s abandonment of Lifeline in a comment period that will remain open until August 31.  

Comments like this from one Diane in Cleveland tell how Ohioans will be affected:

“I am a disabled person.  For decades I have paid ATT to provide necessary phone service in rural areas and to low-income people because there was a NEED.  While I have not needed those particular services, I am appalled that this corporate giant believes it can abandon citizens while it rakes in billions of dollars over taxpayer and federally controlled and allocated airwaves.”  

“Lifeline service helps to make basic telephone service affordable for low-income Ohioans who typically cannot afford the more expensive service offerings of local telephone companies,” said  Susan Jagers, Director of the Ohio Poverty Law Center. “These families can afford little more than food and rent. But, like everyone, they need access to communication services to ensure the can reach emergency services, medical providers, caregivers and family members.”

Speakers also acknowledged the critical role that access to reliable communication plays in Ohioans’ health and well-being, including the importance of the ability to access telemedicine or to simply schedule appointments and follow up with doctors.

“Across the country, half of black and Latino families qualify for Lifeline. Here in Ohio, access to the internet and the telephone is a true lifeline in our communities. Countless households rely on the program so that they can reach their doctor, apply for job or even talk to their kids,” said Tom Roberts, President of the Ohio Conference of the NAACP. “It’s outrageous that after receiving billions of dollars of windfall in the tax bill, AT&T is trying to withdraw its support for basic services for our most vulnerable citizens.” “Lifeline’s basic service is essential to older Ohioans’ ability to communicate with friends and family, caregivers, and in emergencies,” said Norm Wernet, President of the Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans. “The ability of aging Ohioans to live outside an institutional setting is an essential cost savings to the taxpayers of Ohio. Diminishing older and disabled Ohioans’ ability to live independently will cost us all much more than is gained by this very profitable corporation in the end.”

“Not only does Lifeline impact seniors and families that receive safety net benefits, it also protects those needing to stay connected for health care reasons,” said Bianca Edwards, a community organizer with the Ohio Organizing Collaborative. “For those who cannot afford phone or internet services, this is the lifeline that keeps them connected not only to their communities and loved one but also to safety.”

AT&T withdrew from the Lifeline low-income discount program in 12 other states in 2017. In Ohio, there are a total of 1,597,000 households that qualify for the program, including 157,000 veterans and 452,000 households with children that are eligible.  

The company’s efforts to withdraw from the program in Ohio coincide with it coming under increased fire for its broken promises on jobs in Ohio and across the Midwest. This week, AT&T workers called attention to the impact of AT&T’s job cuts and offshoring across the Midwest.

Before the Republican tax plan passed, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson pledged that if enacted, the company would spend at least $1 billion in capital expenditures and be able to create “7,000 good jobs for the middle class.” Instead, despite $20 billion in tax savings, a new CWA analysis based on AT&T’s Q2 earnings report estimates that the company has eliminated 7,000 jobs since January 2018 when the tax cuts took effect.

A recent report from CWA found that AT&T has closed 44 call centers and eliminated 16,000 call center jobs in the last seven years. The Midwest has been particularly hard hit by these closures and layoffs.\

“AT&T is exploiting Americans by lying to Americans about increasing jobs and wages in order to sell politicians on billions of dollars in free money,” said ProgressOhio Managing Director Tyler Dillon. “To continue to abandon thousands of Ohioans after raking in billions from a corporate tax giveaway while laying off workers and refusing to significantly raise wages is disgusting. PUCO should reject AT&T’s latest attempt to throw Ohioans under the bus and allow our veterans, the elderly, minorities, and other vulnerable citizens to access the services they need.”

“AT&T continues to put corporate profits over the needs of working families at every turn,” said Ron Gay, Jr., Staff Representative from the Communications Workers of America District 4. “From their broken jobs promises following the tax windfall, to the call center closures and job cuts that have hit hard here in the Midwest, now this threat of withdrawal from Lifeline is just the latest attack. We aren’t simply going to accept their behavior. We are organizing and will work to hold them accountable at every turn.”  

Community leaders encouraged everyone to weigh in on the importance of maintaining Lifeline as a robust program. PUCO is taking public comments through August 31.  Ohioans can submit comments via ProgressOhio at act.progressohio.org/letter/demand-t-protect-elderly-and-low-income/ or on PUCO’s website at puco.ohio.gov/Contact-Us/.

Student Leaders to Host Back to School, Back to Action Press Conference on Gun Violence Prevention

Youth leaders from around the state will report back on student-led gun violence prevention efforts over the summer and for the coming school year; call out Governor Sununu’s decision to allow guns in elementary, middle and high schools

Concord, NH – One day after the six-month anniversary of the Parkland school shooting, New Hampshire youth gun violence prevention leaders will host a Back to School, Back to Action press conference at the State House on Wednesday, August 15th at 10:00 am.

Youth leaders from around the state will report back on student-led gun violence prevention efforts over the summer and for the coming school year, and voice concerns over returning to elementary and high schools where potentially dangerous people can bring guns into school buildings and grounds.

“We are excited for the start of the school year, but we all know that we are in danger when we leave for the first day of school,” said Mattison Howard , a sophomore at Concord High School and member of the NH Student Social Justice League. “Back to school for us means back to headlines of school shootings every few weeks, and worrying we might be next.”

“Students return to school with the same fears of gun violence we had last year because politicians have ignored our pleas to provide a safer learning environment,” said Jennifer White, a Senior at Hopkinton High School and Granite State Progress intern. “Governor Sununu and Senate Republicans rejected a bill that would have clarified that local school districts can enforce gun free school zones, and they repealed the concealed carry licensing requirement that provided checks and balances on who can carry firearms into schools.”

Under a memo from the NH Attorney General and supported by Governor Sununu, community members can carry firearms into elementary and high schools. According to the memo, a school official or police officer can only take action once an individual makes a threat
