The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it’s become an economic suicide pact. And we’re here to challenge it.

Republicans waging a war FOR Milwaukee

The state Public Service Commission recently ruled that the City of Milwaukee may not pass on the cost of relocating utilities for a streetcar project to ratepayers. The decision has revived allegations that Republicans have something against Milwaukee, which is not true.

When I moved to Milwaukee 13 years ago, I immediately fell in love with this great city. The Milwaukee area is where I want to raise a family, build a business, give back and retire. The policies that my colleagues and I have fought for reflect our genuine efforts to move Milwaukee forward.

Have you heard about Common Core? The chilling truth behind these new national educational “standards” will terrify you. Common Core represents the latest and most comprehensive step in the drive toward complete government control of our children’s education. Join us for a special presentation exposing the truth about Common Core and the ongoing struggle to roll back its implementation.

Moving Forward: 2014 RPW State Convention

State Convention is a time to show the strength of our Party – and the momentum we have going into November. The Party is unified and focused on re-electing Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch, and our Republican majorities.

RPW is now 16 offices strong – as we’ve said all along, we believe it is our grassroots movement that will be critical to victory. This year, we have unprecedented programs in place that are registering new voters, identifying supporters, and building the systems needed to win that will ultimately turn out support on Election Day for Republicans.

Convention is a vital time for discussion between legislators, activists and volunteers – and truly will set the course for victory in November.

During the last three years, Republicans have experienced a lot in Wisconsin. We fought hard to keep Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch, and our Republican leaders in office, and to protect the reforms that saved our state.

We made the tough, but prudent, decisions necessary to balance the budget and create a government that works for the taxpayers, not against them.

The great news is that the voters of Wisconsin reaffirmed the direction they wanted to take the state in 2012, we have now been able to invest in our priorities – lower taxes, more jobs, a balanced budget, and a greater opportunity for all of Wisconsin.

Now, jobs are coming back, we have a budget surplus, the tax burden is down, and most importantly our economy is growing. Wisconsin is back on, and we’re moving forward.

Republican accomplishments include:
* With Governor Scott Walker, Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and a Republican majority in both the State Senate and State Assembly, we are truly able to invest in the state’s priorities and set a direction for the state to move forward
* Eliminating a $3.6 billion budget deficit without tax increases, and a budget surplus that has allowed investment in the state’s priorities
* Over $3 billion in savings, and reforms that are working for the taxpayer, not for bigger government
* Over $2 billion in tax relief, through property tax and income tax cuts, and a tax withholdings plan that is saving the typical Wisconsin family $520 this year alone
* A lower tax burden for middle-class families and job creators, and employer confidence now sits at 95%, up over 80 points since Walker and Republicans have taken in office
* Over 100,000 new jobs and over 17,000 new startups
* Unemployment is now at 5.9%, lower than the national average and the lowest in the state in 5 years
* A hold on property taxes three years in a row; after a 27% increase in the previous 10 years, Wisconsin’s property taxes are lower in 2014 than they were in 2010
* Four years ago, the debate in Madison revolved around the size of tax hikes, but now we’re discussing tax cuts and government reform

We’ve accomplished so much – but we believe the best is yet to come. We’ve laid the groundwork, and now is the time for us to take action. It is our grassroots movement that will pave the way to victory in November.

The Democratic breakup that exposes Washington’s rotten core

“I see lobbying,” Tony Podesta has said, “as getting information in the hands of people who are making decisions so they can make more informed decisions.” Last week the information Tony Podesta was giving was the divorce complaint he had filed in D.C. Court against his wife Heather. The hands receiving that information belonged to a gossip columnist for the Washington Post, who made the “informed decision” to report on it. Later in the day Heather, who is also a lobbyist, informed the Post the text of her counter-suit. It published a follow-up.

–SNIP– As government expands, extending its reach to every aspect of business, every sector of the economy, private citizens and corporations require sherpas to lead them through the mountains of regulations and tax provisions, to discover exemptions and special favors and other forms of relief or favoritism to improve the bottom line. And who better to act as sherpas than the relatives of the Democrats who impose the regulations and tax provisions in the first place, who better than the lively proprietors of a family business operating in the luxurious and morally uncomplicated world of the caste of limousine liberals who dominate politics, culture, news, and finance.

Corporations give to Democratic politicians, avoiding the scrutiny of liberal attack dogs in the media and nonprofit sectors, and enjoying the ego boost that comes with being on the “right side of history.” Then those corporations hire the Podestas to get them out of the Rube Goldberg traps the Democrats have enacted into law. John’s innovation was to establish a corporate-funded think tank where the burdensome policies would be concocted, and whose staff would go on to man the regulatory agencies that put their wool-headed ideas into practice. And to whom do the corporations turn when they find themselves on the receiving end of all this uplift, all this do-goodery, all this progress, hope, and change? Why, to the man in the red Prada loafers, and to his flamboyantly patterned wife.
