Again out of his element, Mike Tate the slick talking Chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has attacked Paul Ryan and Tom Petri for their votes against HR 3962 known as PelosiCare. Mike Tate in his press release ranted that the 1st and 6th congressional districts voted for Obama and claimed that Petri and Ryan are growing what he calls a divide between their constituents and their agendas. That is far from the truth.
Well Mike before you rant further, take note that your party got owned big time this year in New Jersey and Virginia . Also, the wins those two states were the most convincing in four decades. The GOP wins in New Jersey and Virginia are the precursor to Wisconsin voters voting out the Democrats like the voters did in the Garden State and the Commonwealth of Old Dominion this year. The people of the 1st and 6th congressional districts are standing with Tom Petri and Paul Ryan because voters in these districts are not buying the idea of the Democrats health care bill that lowers the quality of health care, increases costs, and raises taxes on the middle class. Both Petri and Ryan listened to the people during the critical August recess. The people in the 1st and 6th congressional districts are going to re-elect Tom Petri and Paul Ryan because they are not going to take it with the higher taxes the Affordable Health Care for Act puts on workers and job creators. Also, this bill is the worst bill to pass when unemployment is at 10.2 percent and the stimulus has failed Wisconsin miserably.
Mike Tate should be concerned that the voters are not going to stand with Ron Kind, Dave Obey, and Steve Kagen who voted for the bill and ignored the voices of their constituents who made it clear during the August recess that they were not going to put up with this bad bill. Also, Chairman Tate is making this desperate statement because his party is in disarray without a major governor’s candidate. Talk all you want Mike, but the same conservative freight train that hit Democrats in New Jersey and Virginia this year will be hitting Wisconsin next year with a vengeance.
