Walker Rewrites History

By Wisconsin State AFL-CIO

Gov. Walker is hoping to rewrite history. If you’re looking for spin, lies, half-truths and myths then Gov. Walker’s new book is for you. If you’re looking for facts on Walker’s policies and how they have impacted working people in Wisconsin – read on.

Busy positioning himself on the national stage and pedaling to big-time, out-of-state campaign donors for a Presidential run, Walker faces a lot of problems at home.

  • Dismal job numbers — Wisconsin has fallen to 45th in the nation in job growth
  • Stripping public employees of collective bargaining rights and a voice on the job even after they agreed to financial concessions
  • Kicking 90,000 low-income Wisconsinites off BadgerCare
  • Slashing $1.6 billion from public education
  • Abolishing a woman’s legal right to equal pay
  • A failed jobs agency in WEDC
  • An unconstitutional voter ID bill
  • Extreme redistricting
  • A second criminal investigation into his campaign activity

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Gov. Walker’s campaign, as well as a host of shady, conservative money-funneling groups, is under federal criminal investigation in a second John Doe inquiry. While on his book tour Gov. Walker declared that it is too early to say if he will re-open his legal defense fund and will not commit to serving a full-term if re-elected as Governor of Wisconsin.

The people of Wisconsin deserve better than a power-hungry politician who has turned his back on the people. Scott Walker is clearly intimidated by the truth. Absent from the book is any mention of the criminal corruption probe that sent three top Scott Walker aides to jail. Gov. Walker also completely leaves out his central campaign promise to create 250,000 jobs for Wisconsin. Wages have stagnated and job growth is invisible in Walker’s Wisconsin.

It is important that we continue to educate our friends on the harmful consequences of Gov. Walker’s selfish and disastrous policies. Don’t let the spin sink in. We know the real story. It is up to us to educate and activate working people around the state to stand up for a Wisconsin that works for working people.
