Change Begins With You!


Thank you for all the work you did, and continue to do on behalf of the progressive values that we all share.


The combination of a Trump presidency and GOP control over every facet of state government — including the judiciary — from a perfect storm that threatens Wisconsin progressives and moderates. Donate, volunteer, do something, do whatever you can, to fight the destructive agenda that lies before us. 

Working together, we can move Wisconsin Forward!

We will not back down, and we will never give up.



Infrastructure
This week Walker traveled to D.C. looking for Trump’s help fixing Wisconsin’s roads, which are the 2nd worst in the nation. But like Walker, who has let Wisconsin infrastructure crumble, the Trump budget cuts more from federal infrastructure investments than it adds -- slashing at least $250 billion from key programs Wisconsin relies on to repair the road, bridge, transit, aviation, drinking and wastewater systems. Walker’s praise for Trump has apparently made little difference because Wisconsin could lose nearly $2.6 billion in federal transportation funding as a result, on top of billions in unfunded infrastructure repairs that hurt businesses, workers, and families across the state.

“Scott Walker has disastrously mismanaged and neglected Wisconsin infrastructure for the last seven years,” said Laning. “Walker went to the White House this week to beg Trump for federal help to repair our crumbling roads and came up short. We need real, long-term investment in our infrastructure, and neither Trump nor Walker can afford that after all of their tax breaks for billionaires and corporations.

“Neglecting our state, sabotaging health-care access and making it more difficult for low-income Wisconsinites to get ahead are lowlights of Walker’s seven years as governor. These policies abandoned hard-working Wisconsinites, and Trump’s budget will have similarly catastrophic effects on the American people.”
