Rep. Pasch Statement on Act 10 Ruling

Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader Sandy Pasch (D – Shorewood) released the following statement regarding the Seventh Circuit Court ruling that upheld Act 10 on narrow legal grounds

Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader Sandy Pasch (D – Shorewood) released the following statement regarding the Seventh Circuit Court ruling that upheld Act 10 on narrow legal grounds:

“Due to the actions by legislative Republicans and Governor Walker, our last legislative session will go down as one of the most divisive and polarizing in our state’s history.  Today’s court decision serves as a stark reminder that legislative Republicans and Governor Walker rammed through extreme and highly partisan legislation that ‘rewards friends and punishes opponents’ and has consequently been tied up in courts at taxpayer expense.

“Regardless of today’s ruling, our constituents clearly don’t want to be paying for the work of their elected officials through legal fees.  Rather, they have demanded that we roll up our sleeves, look each other in the eye, and genuinely work together to address our communities’ critical needs and priorities in ways that don’t abuse political power or betray public trust.

“Both Republicans and Democrats alike campaigned on promises of bipartisanship, creating jobs, and supporting education.  My hope is that my Republican colleagues will work with us on these very real and critical issues and move away from the ideological favoritism and political punishment that plagued our state under their leadership this past legislative session.”

It sounds like Sandy got a splinter in her butt from riding her broom.

Tied up in court huh Sandy? Which party has decided that every bill they dont agree with they need to take to court? Remember it is YOUR Supreme Leader and Savior that LOVES to remind us "elections have consequences" and uses "the people have spoken" to defend his policies. Well, Sandy the people spoke TWICE in telling you and the libtards WE SUPPORT WALKER.

All the Walker hates should donate their tax refund that Walker is going to give them to their local schools. A. It will decrease their tax burden and give more of the EITC they whine about losing. B. They can re-fund the poor schools that Walker has created. C. The whiny teachers union thugs will get more $$$ to pay with. Not one of them WILL do it, though. All talk, no action.
