DPW Video "Hiding on Harley" Highlights Walker's Failure to Stand Up to Trump PDF Print E-mail

scott-walker-harleyWhen Harley-Davidson needed an ally against Trump’s tariffs, Scott Walker was nowhere to be found.

MADISON - As Harley-Davidson celebrates its 115th anniversary this week, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin launched a new video, “Hiding on Harley” showing Scott Walker’s failure to stand up for Wisconsin as President Trump’s trade war hurts businesses and workers.

View Why is Scott Walker Hiding on Harley? video below.

Earlier this summer, Harley Davidson announced that due to Trump’s tariffs,  they would be forced to move some production overseas. This announcement prompted Trump to float the idea of a possible boycott, which would have only hurt the company further. But instead of standing up for Wisconsin businesses and Wisconsin workers, Walker ducked his head for an entire day to avoid angering Trump.

His slow and reluctant response should be a warning to any Wisconsin company: Scott Walker does not have your back.

“Scott Walker cannot be trusted to stand up for Wisconsin businesses or workers hurt by the harmful policies coming out of Washington,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Courtney Beyer. “When Harley-Davidson needed an ally against Trump’s attacks, Scott Walker was nowhere to be found. If this is how Walker treats his "favorite" company, imagine how badly he’ll treat everyone else.”

Vukmir Attacks Nurses, Then Backs Cutting Health Care PDF Print E-mail

nurseDays after attacking nurses and doctors who spoke out against her health care agenda, Vukmir is recommitting to plans that would increase health care costs and cut access for millions.

MADISON -- After last week accusing Wisconsin nurses and doctors of "doom-and-gloom" lying about her dangerous health care agenda, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir has now reaffirmed her commitment to the dangerous set of health care policy priorities that the Wisconsin medical providers warned about, including Vukmir's support for gutting pre-existing condition protections and slashing funding for Medicaid, which covers three in five Wisconsin nursing home residents.

leah-vukmirHere's a look at Vukmir's health care agenda, via the Wisconsin State Journal:

  • Vukmir supports GOP repeal plans that gut pre-existing condition coverage protections -- "Vukmir has supported various Obamacare repeal proposals offered by Republicans in Congress. She said she supported the Graham-Cassidy repeal measure debated in the Senate last year, and praised the American Health Care Act, the repeal bill that passed the U.S. House last year."
  • Vukmir supports deep cuts to BadgerCare (Medicaid) -- "The Graham-Cassidy measure she supported would have cut funding for Medicaid relative to the future course set under current law. Wisconsin would have gotten $562 million fewer federal dollars for Medicaid over a decade under the plan, the Kaiser foundation found."
    • What that means for Wisconsin: Following the passage of the Republican tax law that sends more than 80 percent of benefits to the richest 1 percent and large corporations, Vukmir signaled her support for cuts to programs like Medicare, which covers more than 1 million Wisconsinites, and Medicaid, which provides coverage for 3 in 5 Wisconsin nursing home residents.
  • Vukmir supports the Trump administration's "junk plan" rule -- "Vukmir, in an interview with the State Journal earlier this month, said she supported scaling back essential health benefit requirements...Vukmir supports rules recently issued by the Trump administration that aim to chip away at Obamacare by permitting certain types of health plans that don’t meet the law’s requirements."
    • What that means for Wisconsin: According to the AARP, the "junk plan" rules that Vukmir supports would allow insurance companies to "deny coverage to people with preexisting conditions" and "impose an age tax, charging older Americans much higher premiums."
