THURSDAY: Progress Iowa and One Wisconsin Now to Hold “Scott Walker Truth Squad” Before Appearance at Polk County GOP Dinner in West Des Moines
DES MOINES — Progress Iowa and One Wisconsin Now will hold a “Scott Walker Truth Squad” in advance of Wisconsin Governor Walker’s appearance with Iowa Governor Terry Branstad at a Polk County GOP fundraiser on Thursday, May 23rd in West Des Moines. The event on Thursday will pre-empt their propaganda and give Iowans the truth about their failed attempts to create jobs and their policies that put working and middle class families at risk.
“When Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joins Governor Branstad in Iowa on Thursday to promote his dangerous anti-middle class agenda, we’ll be there to fight back with the truth,” said Matt Sinovic, executive director of Progress Iowa. “Governor Branstad has said he’s ‘inspired’ by Walker, which must be why he has wasted our tax dollars on giveaways to foreign corporations and puts the needs of working Iowans dead last. We want Governor Branstad and every Iowan to know the truth about Scott Walker’s policies and the disastrous impact they have on working families.”
One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross commented, “As he pursues his ambition for higher office Gov. Walker is spinning yarns of his Wisconsin ‘success’. But Scott Walker has one the worst job creation records in the nation and Wisconsin is rated dead last in short term job creation prospects, he enacted the biggest cuts to public education in state history and is now pushing a health care scheme that costs more to cover fewer people. The numbers don’t lie, the real Walker resume is a record of failure.”
