leah-vukmirThe Republican Party of Wisconsin-endorsed U.S. Senate candidate backs GOP plans to gut vital benefits programs that millions of Wisconsinites count on.


MADISON -- Following ultraconservative state Sen. Leah Vukmir's decisive win of the Republican Party of Wisconsin's endorsement, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is profiling Vukmir's support for extreme policies that are giveaways to corporate special interests and would inflict real harm on hardworking Wisconsinites. Previously, we looked at Vukmir's support for Trumpcare plansthat would gut preexisting conditions protections and Republican health care sabotage that's causing Wisconsinites' premiums to skyrocket. But that isn't the full scope of Leah Vukmir's enthusiasm for cutting Wisconsin working families and retirees health care access -- she also backs GOP plans to slash Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid:

Leah Vukmir Supports Extreme Plans to Gut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

Leah Vukmir supports Republican efforts to gut Wisconsinites’ Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security benefits -- a cruel, extreme gift to billionaire megadonors like the Koch brothers that would hurt Wisconsin seniors, kids and future retirees.

Here's the extent to which Vukmir's plans to gut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid would inflict real harm on Wisconsinites:

Despite these eyebrow-raising statistics, Vukmir isn't too concerned by the fact that her support for efforts to gut programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid would disproportionately hurt young kids, retirees and Wisconsinites with disabilities. Quite the opposite: in January, Vukmir asserted that gutting Medicaid -- which, again, 3 in 5 Wisconsin nursing home residents rely on -- is "actually compassionate" and a "Christian way to approach public policy."

"State Sen. Leah Vukmir has spent her career in Madison undercutting Wisconsin working families and supporting Gov. Scott Walker's corrupt megadonor and corporate special interest giveaways," said Brad Bainum, DPW spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "And as Vukmir continues her U.S. Senate campaign across Wisconsin -- continuing to champion Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid cuts that would hurt hardworking Wisconsinites -- it's clear that nothing's changed."

“Whether it’s by enforcing consumer fraud laws, cracking down on crime, or defending voting rights, Josh will make Wisconsin safer and stronger as Attorney General."


MADISON - Josh Kaul, former federal prosecutor and candidate for Wisconsin Attorney General, today announced the endorsement of U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin.

"Josh Kaul is an experienced prosecutor and community leader with a proven track record of keeping communities safe and making sure their voices are heard,” said Senator Baldwin. “Whether it’s by enforcing consumer fraud laws, cracking down on crime, or defending voting rights, Josh will make Wisconsin safer and stronger as Attorney General."

josh-kaulKaul thanked Senator Baldwin for her support. “From fighting to ensure that pharmaceutical companies can be held accountable when they inflate the price of life-saving medicine, to standing up for Wisconsin dairy farmers, to calling for greater urgency from our current Attorney General in addressing the backlog of untested rape kits, Senator Baldwin consistently puts Wisconsin families first,” Kaul said.

Josh Kaul served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, Kaul prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers, taking dangerous criminals off the street and making communities more secure. He grew up in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac in a family of law enforcement professionals and teachers. He is running for Attorney General in 2018.
