Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Has Outsourced Policy Papers

BuzzFeed reports that Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s plan for job creation in the Badger State, “Invest for Success,” consists largely of sentences and whole paragraphs lifted verbatim from policy papers produced for the campaigns of other Democratic gubernatorial candidates in several other states. The plans cannibalized for Burke’s benefit are those put forward by then-Delaware governor Jack Markell in 2008, Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Ward Cammack in 2009, and Indiana candidate John Gregg in 2012. Cammack withdrew his candidacy before the election; Gregg was defeated.

The issue is a major one for Burke, not least because of the Democrats’ insistent hammering on the jobs-creation record of Governor Scott Walker. During his 2008 campaign, Walker rashly put forward a goal of creating 250,000 new private-sector jobs in Wisconsin during his first term; at the time, Wisconsin’s unemployment rate was 9.2%. The policies of the preceding, Democratic Doyle administration, which had included much higher corporate and personal tax rates than the surrounding states, as well as a controversial provision requiring any business headquartered in Wisconsin with operations in other states to pay taxes in Wisconsin on profits earned in those states, combined to drive businesses out of the state at a loss, over the Doyle administration’s eight years, of well over 100,000 jobs. From 2005-2007, Burke served as Doyle’s secretary of commerce.

Our Plan For The Next Four Years

Take a look at our comprehensive plan for the next four years called “Continuing Wisconsin’s Comeback.” This plan is built to provide greater prosperity for all. Over the next four years, we want to help people keep more of their paychecks, we want to help people learn more to earn more through increased investments in worker training and by freezing tuition, and we want to move people from government dependence to true independence.

If re-elected, I will:

  • Cut property taxes so the levy on a typical home in 2018 is lower than it was in 2010.
  • Reduce income taxes so they are lower in 2018 than they are today.
  • Provide tax relief for manufacturing and agriculture.
  • Fight Obamacare, which is raising health insurance premiums for many in Wisconsin.
  • Expand worker training investments.
  • Freeze technical college tuition and continue the UW System tuition freeze.
  • Establish accountability measures for all schools receiving public funding.
  • Establish high standards for students at the local and state level as an alternative to measures set by people outside of Wisconsin.
  • Put common sense limits on the time able-bodied, working age childless adults can be on public assistance.
  • Require drug testing for those requesting unemployment and able-bodied, working age adults requesting food stamps from the state.
  • Require working-age childless adults receiving food stamps or unemployment benefits participate in employment training or part-time work.

Wisconsin is on a comeback and the future is bright and getting brighter every day. We are better off than we were four years ago and if we continue on this path we will be better off four years from now. Let’s not bring back the days of double-digit tax increases, multi-billion dollar budget deficits, and massive job loss.

Help me get this plan out to all of your family and friends. Let’s keep moving Wisconsin Forward!

On Wisconsin,
Scott Walker

Scott Walker Campaign Readies for Final Stretch

As of now, he’s in a statistical dead heat.

At the end of August, the Marquette University Law School poll — which has developed an enviable reputation for predicting the behavior of voters in the Badger State — released results which again show the gubernatorial race in Wisconsin in an absolute statistical dead heat. Democrat candidate Mary Burke is about a percentage point ahead with “likely” voters, and Scott Walker is slightly ahead (by about the same margin) with “registered” voters. Dr. Charles Franklin, director of the poll, points out the remarkable lack of movement: upwards of 45% support Burke, and upwards of 45% support Walker, and it has been so for months.
