Senator Janis Ringhand Statement on Governor Walker’s speech


The rich and well connected have done extraordinarily well under Governor Walker, while the rest of us remain anxious and uncertain about the future.

Wisconsin families are not better off than we were six years ago. We have trailed the national average for job creation every quarter since Governor Walker took office. Incomes are stagnant and falling behind the rest of the country.

It is time to rebuild our crumbling roads and schools and give the working class a break.

The wealthy and powerful have gotten more than their fair share from Governor Walker.

Now it is time he focus on the rest of us.
