Change Begins With You!

2016 was not the result we hoped for – but we will not back down, and we will never give up.  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 to make 2017 one of the worst years ever for Wisconsin progressives and moderates. Donate, volunteer, do something, do whatever you can, to fight the destructive agenda that lies before us.

Republicans Struggle With Bi-Annual State Budget

     Republicans have yet to come to an understanding on key provisions of the 2017-2019 biennial budget.

     Republicans still haven’t committed to prioritizing public schools and restoring the historic cuts made to k-12 funding in the last two budgets. Instead, they’re currently at odds on just how little to attribute to k-12 schooling while continuing to shovel millions to unaccountable private schools.

     In addition, Republican leaders can’t create a long-term solution to fix our state’s crumbling roads and bridges.

     The budget committee has no meetings schedules and Senate Republican leaders are openly talking about passing their own separate two-year spending plan - an unusual move that would certainly delay final approval.

     Republicans have their largest majority in the Assembly and Senate in decades, but don’t have any ideas to fairly provide opportunities to get ahead for hard-working families in communities across Wisconsin.

     Instead of bickering internally, Republicans should work with Democrats to uphold Wisconsin’s tradition of quality public education and ensure every student has the opportunity to attend a school that meets high standards.

Instead of kicking the can down the role on transportation infrastructure, they should work with Democrats to rebuild a fair and vibrant economy through a strong transportation and high-speed technology infrastructure.
