The time is now!

As the stream of bad news for Scott Walker continues, during his post failed Presidential candidacy, Wisconsin continues to witness the failing policies of his administration with the reporting of corporate exodus from Wisconsin and jobs being lost because of it.

Why are jobs and corporations leaving Wisconsin?

Recent reports state that Walker’s WEDC may have awarded tax credits illegally. The Department of Justice has been asked by U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin to investigate WEDC. This kind of news does not bode well in many corporate board rooms.

Walker’s Administration Bad for Wisconsin People & Brand

Wisconsin has lost its once powerful reputation of being a transparent government, which was a model for the rest of the nation. Walker’s administration and WEDC corruption has turned Wisconsin into an example of bad government closing its books by changing campaign finance laws to avoid public oversight

The recent news that Wisconsin did well with jobs growth in October is overshadowed by the fact that only 30,000 jobs were added year to date in 2015. Walker should have focused on jobs growth from day one on after taking office in 2011.

Loss of jobs. Corrupt WEDC. Failed communication with businesses. Changing laws to prevent transparency in government. Failed presidential candidacy by the governor. Is it any wonder why Tyson, Oscar Mayer and other companies are leaving. Even key Republicans such as Michael S. Murphy are leaving the Republican Party. The GOP brand is sinking.
Walker’s first gubernatorial campaign was centered around his promise of creating 250,000 jobs. He never even came close. And now that more and more companies are leaving the state, taking their jobs with them, achieving 250,000 jobs is nothing but a pipe dream.
Add to that an embarrassing and horrifically expensive run at the presidential nomination and you have a monumental loser in Walker.

Walker is the Republican Party bad news storm. When it rains it pours on the GOP with Walker leading the helm. The Marquette Law School poll not only shows thatWalker’s job approval is among the lowest in the country,but also that the Republican Legislators are feeling the heat from the public.

Moderate Republicans, the ones who decide elections, are dissatisfied with Walker and the Republican Legislators.

Given the growing corruption at the Capitol, lack of consistent job creation and plant closures, Walker and Republican Legislators are destroying the Republican brand. If the Wisconsin Republican moderate and independent base continues to refuse to exert authority on Walker and the Republican Legislators, the GOP will lose Wisconsin.

What is DPW waiting for? The time to strike is now. The time to bring out this massive corruption Walker has been supporting into the public arena has arrived. Now is not the time to sit back and allow Walker and his network of political thugs to hide their dirty work!

The time is now to expose that dirty laundry and show Wisconsin what Walker has done to our state. To show what Walker has done with our money. To show what Walker has done to Wisconsin’s working families. To show what Walker has done to our system of education and to our state’s reputation. The future of our state is at stake.

The time is now for Wisconsin Republicans to stand against Walker for the sake of Wisconsin.
