How bad have the policies of Scott Walker been for the state of Wisconsin?
Scott Walker and his Republican legislature are obsessed with making women’s healthcare decisions for them.
(This includes everything from deciding who gets birth control to who gets cancer screenings). Yet Walker and his cohorts show no desire to regulate mens’ healthcare decisions in the same way. Welcome to Scott Walker’s version of the Republican War on Women!
WALKER REPUBLICANS: Are impeding women’s ability to make choices about their own general and reproductive health care
FACT: Scott Walker took office in 2011. Since then, at least 11 policy changes through 8 laws have been passed that limit women’s access to sex education, birth control, cancer screening, and abortion services.
FACT: The mandate of a medically unnecessary ultrasound in the first trimester requires an invasive transvaginal ultrasound to produce adequate images. (Senate Bill 206)
FACT: Walker Republican legislation reduces access to safe and legal abortion by forcing the closure of 50% of Wisconsin’s 4 abortion facilities, and criminalizing doctors who rely on best practice to care for their patients but do not have hospital admitting privileges.
FACT: Wisconsin is now ranked among the nine worst states for reproductive rights. Wisconsin shares the dubious distinction with Texas, North Dakota, Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan, Arkansas, Indiana and Kansas.
FACT: Restricting access to abortion makes abortion more dangerous and puts women’s health and lives at risk. Read more…
Scott Walker and his Republican legislature have cut funding to our local schools and have given our tax dollars to private, unaccountable, corporate-run schools.
FACT: Only 17% of voucher school students outperformed public schools, 37 % did significantly worse, and the remaining 46% were no better. Milwaukee voucher students perform WORSE in state tests than their public school peers. (Stanford University study) Read more…
Scott Walker and his Republican legislature voted to remove 87,000 Wisconsin families from BadgerCare.
At the same time, they DID NOT vote to remove themselves from taxpayer funded healthcare (WHICH INCLUDES DENTAL & VISION CARE).
WALKER REPUBLICANS: Refusal to participate in the federal health care exchanges has driven up the cost of health care plans for individuals.
FACT: In Minnesota, where the state government created a state exchange, the premiums are as low as half as they are in Wisconsin. Read more…
Scott Walker and his Republican legislature gave out-of-state corporations REGULATORY POWER over Wisconsin towns and villages.
WALKER REPUBLICANS WANT: To bar local government control and decisions protecting air and water quality
FACT: Wisconsin is the nation’s No. 1 producer of sand used in fracking. There are currently at least 115 permitted or operational frac sand mines and processing plants in Wisconsin. A proposed Republican bill restricts local governments’ authority over roads and traffic and the use of explosives, as well as their ability to regulate air or water quality related to nonmetallic mines. The bill would also prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from establishing nonmetallic mining reclamation standards relating to water quality or air quality that are more restrictive than existing state laws.

Walker Republicans voted to give Scott Walker authority to sell any state asset, at any price, to any corporate entity or individual – WITHOUT BIDS! This includes the state capital.
WALKER REPUBLICANS: Want to sell publicly owned buildings and assets (like the Capitol building and University power plants) to private corporations and individuals
FACT: Walker Republicans authorized the sale or lease of any state owned heating, cooling or power plant, with or without the solicitation of competitive bids.
FACT: Selling heating plants to private interests could stick the state with higher costs when it buys back output from the plants. The sale of these facilities would saddle the state with higher day-to-day costs because the state would have to contract with the buyers of the plants to heat and cool University of Wisconsin campuses, prisons and health institutions.
