On Campaign finance, election reform forum at UW-Whitewater slated
donnaw,You're prediction is dead-on. UW Whitewater was called out earlier this year for their slate of liberal speakers and lack of conservative speakers. From K12 through public universities, the liberal indoctrination continues.
The title of the event says it all. "What Ever Happened to Good Government in Wisconsin? And How Can We Fix It?" Dems and left-leaning groups are out of favor and out of power in state government, so suddenly there is no 'good government.' How absurd.
In terms of legislators turning down invitations to certain events, you can bet they either had prior commitments or suspected ambush, and thus why should they attend. I have seen both legislators mentioned (Nass and Kedzie) at plenty of events throughout the area, including ones where they were asked tough questions which they actually answered.
On Loudenbeck, Schroeder agree to disagree in 31st
Schroeder wants more spending, no cuts, restored funding, etc., but has no plan to pay for it. Loudenbeck is the only adult in this race, while Schroeder is on the hook to pay back his public union donors and endorsers.
The Janesville Gazette, the largest daily newspaper in the area endorsed Amy Loudenbeck and said democrat Ryan Schroeder talks a lot without saying much, sticks to democrat talking points and has no specific ideas. WOW!
On Loudenbeck, Schroeder spar over job creation, Act 10
I wonder if PanamaRed also blames Republicans for the cost of the recall elections initiated by democrats and liberal groups or all the additional cost for security and repairing the capital after those same groups trashed the building. In terms of funding education and healthcare, BadgerCare funding increased and the long-term financial health of education was secured by having employees who were used to getting free or nearly free healthcare and pensions, contribute something to their own insurance and retirement.
Liberal democrat Ryan Schroeder never does give a legitimate reason why he is running what is often referred to as a carpet-bagger campaign; running for an office that covers a district in which you don't live. In a June 5 press release disguised as a news story in the Janesville Gazette he stated, "I'm tired of seeing what's been done at the state capitol in terms of the way the redistricting lines were drawn—behind closed doors—that has really done a disservice to residents, particularly by cutting in half the Delavan-Darien School District," Schroeder said. So, why not run in his own district that also includes the Delavan-Darien School District? Maybe because voters in his home city soundly rejected him for mayor just seven months ago, or maybe because he thinks Rock County offers some salvation for big-spending liberal politicians. Who knows? Regardless, Schroeder continues his campaign based on misinformation and telling voters whatever he thinks they want to hear, without any details about what he would do to hold the line on taxes, eliminate a multi-billion dollar deficit and balance the budget. When a liberal won't give details, I think we all know what he will do if elected.
Schroeder stated, "What should concern the voters were the closed-door (redistricting) meetings." Funny, he never complained about closed-door redistricting when his party did it. I guess it's okay when liberal democrats are in charge and have a majority, but not conservative Republicans. At least we know Schroeder stands for party-driven redistricting as long as his party is in control.
With all his supposed 'experience' Schroeder offers nothing except vague critiques of his opponent. After reading all the news stories, press releases, and watching videos of debates and interviews, liberal democrat Ryan Schroeder has yet to tell voters, SPECIFICALLY how he would have eliminated the debt and balanced the budget without raising taxes. Schroeder talks and talks about 'bringing people together.' NEWSLFASH: That's NOT a plan. It's politican-speak for, 'I don't have a clue' or 'I can't tell you what I really want to do, so I'll just keep dishing out the fact-free, meaningless platitudes.'
On Wis. judge rejects request to reinstate union law
Sad day for Wisconsin as Judge Colas' ruling is a joke. First, they're not 'rights,' as the rest of the public did not have them. Second, free assocation and free speech remain available to public union members as we witnessed when they marched on and trashed the capital. Finally, it was the public and tax payers at-large who remained equally unprotected as big public labor held them hostage year after year for contract terms well in excess of what was sustainable, affordable or reasonable as compared to their private sector counterparts.
On Jobs, education and the budget debated among 31st District candidates
Democrat Schroeder voted against hundreds of jobs when he opposed Kohl's Department Store as well as took other anti-jobs actions on city council in Delavan. He wants to spend more but has no answer on how to pay for it. One would think with all Schroeder's experience, he could do more than attack the action of his opponent that helped eliminate the state's $3.6 billion deficit and balance the budget without raising taxes, closing facilities or laying off workers. I guess since Schroeder won't tell us SPECIFICALLY how he would have done things, we must assume he would both raise taxes and add to the debt.
On Schroeder declares candidacy for 31st Assembly seat
Came across some of Democrat Ryan Schroeder's campaign literature recently. Shockingly, Schroeder seems to be ultra vague about his party affiliation, and working with his liberal Milwaukee Democrat boss to stop Governor Walker's agenda of controlling taxes and balancing the budget. Schroeder has done things like promote the Occupy protests in Wisconsin. Mr. Schroeder should consider sharing his liberal credentials with voters and allow us to decide between him and his opponent. Based on her information, it appears Loudenbeck is a conservative Republican. Based on Schroeder's activities, it appears he is a liberal Democrat (except of course when he's campaigning for office). Why is liberal Democrat Ryan Schroeder running away from his Occupy and Recall promoting background? Maybe some voters want that and maybe not. Guess we'll never know since Schroeder is running as whomever he thinks the voter in front of him at the moment will vote for.
