single-family-homeIn 2006, he hoped everyday Americans with a mortgage would lose to line his own pockets, buy low, sell high.


MADISON - Donald Trump's own comments in 2006 indicate that he hoped the housing market would collapse, saying that while average citizens lost their homes, jobs, and savings, he would be able to profit by buying their property at a low.

martha-laning"The Democratic Party has long been committed to ensuring that all Americans, especially the most most vulnerable, have access to housing that is safe, decent, and affordable," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairwoman Martha Laning.

"Our party is continuing that work to this day because we want every American, regardless of income, to have a roof over their head for a fair chance to get ahead," she continued. "You shouldn't have to be a millionaire to buy a home, save for the future, and give your children better than you had."

"We can't risk having someone in the White House who would dare bet against the American people for their own personal gain," concludes Laning. "Donald Trump clearly does not have the best interest of the American people at heart and he does not have the temperament or stability to be President of the United States."

"Donald Trump is a risk we cannot take," she said.

vietnamwarBrown County Veterans Service Office (CVSO) among offices denied funding due to State Budget cuts, putting area veterans health at risk.


MADISON - A recent survey of County Veterans Service Offices found nearly half of all CVSOs funding requests were denied by the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a result, State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) called on Governor Walker to restore the grants as soon as possible.

dave-hansen“If they can afford to give away over $2 billion in tax breaks to their wealthy and corporate friends they should be able to fully fund our County Veterans Service Offices,” said Hansen. “Taking money that was meant to help veterans receive the support and services they need when we have so many veterans suffering and so many are homeless shows a shocking lack of respect for those who put their lives on the line in service to our country.”

After a failed attempt by Republican lawmakers to close local veterans services offices and limit access to veteran services and benefits, GOP lawmakers instead called on the Department of Veterans Affairs to limit grants and funding for county offices and staff making it more difficult for veterans to get the services they’ve earned and need.

“The continuing budget crisis we are experiencing is the result of bad fiscal management on the part of the Governor and Republican lawmakers," said Hansen. "They should not be compounding those mistakes by trying to balance their budget on the backs of veterans and their families. Restoring these grants will not break the bank but they will make a positive difference in the lives of our veterans.”

walkerMADISON - One thing we like to do here at the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign is to amplify the work of other fine nonprofits and enterprising reporters.

This week offered us three opportunities to do just that.

When the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation came out with a report showing that the enforcement of DNR regulations was at a 30-year low, we showed all the money that polluters have given to Walker & Company:
