teaching-studentsSen. Kathleen Vinehout argues the current budget stalemate is due in part to competing education funding proposals that do not address the needs facing school districts across the state. Legislative leaders know the school funding formula is broken, but they choose to ignore State Superintendent Tony Evers’ plan to change that way Wisconsin funds schools.

MADISON - On a press call ahead of remarks from Vice President Mike Pence in Milwaukee, Mayor Tom Barrett and Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning highlighted the disastrous effects of Trumpcare which stands to kick 23 million Americans off of their heath care insurance.

tom_barrett"I'm surprised that the Vice President wants to come to Wisconsin to tout legislation that is designed to deny health care for 23 million Americans and give tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this nation," said Mayor Tom Barrett. "It's notable that he's not appearing at a place where you're going to find people between 50-60 who are going to be affected by this adverse - because those are the people that are really going to suffer from this action that is moving through Washington right now."

If Trumpcare becomes the law of the land, it is estimated that 311,000 Wisconsin residents will lose their health care coverage. In addition, uncertainty surrounding Gov. Walker’s plans to opt-out of federal health protections could jeopardize access and increase costs for more than 850,000 Wisconsin residents with pre-existing conditions.
