Weekly Democratic Address
May 12, 2017
Hi, I’m Representative Gordon Hintz with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.
The Republicans have made their priorities clear. They have consistently prioritized massive tax giveaways to the rich over ways to increase economic opportunity for all Wisconsinites.
Most of our roads and bridges are in serious disrepair, and taxpayers continue to foot the bill for the increasing costs of fixing our transportation system. Yet, what is the Assembly Republican solution? A plan that will raise taxes for nearly one in four people while giving a massive tax break of over one billion dollars to the richest in our state.
Republican politicians are so focused on lining the pockets of special interests that they have neglected the investments in infrastructure and education that create opportunity for families across the state.
We need a policy that addresses the needs of every Wisconsinite, not just the top one percent. We need real solutions for our workers and families.
