Horrific Murder Case Puts Milwaukee’s Progressive Failures in Spotlight

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been a bastion of the Left for over a century now; the last Republican mayor left office in 1908, and a string of Democratic and socialist mayors has ensued. Various sources have rated the city as one of the ten poorest in the nation, and also as one of the most segregated.

Both of these failures can only be viewed as products of the party in power. After 100 years, the Left surely owns this one.

The latest is Tom Barrett, a former U.S. congressman who ran for mayor when his district was eliminated through redistricting, and who has twice run — and thankfully lost — bids to become governor. Barrett’s administration has been characterized by a program of rapid gentrification of the downtown area — typified by his “trolley to nowhere,” an oblong closed loop in the downtown area being built with a federal grant from the Obama administration, in a city which wisely did away with street cars over half a century ago — at the expense of the surrounding neighborhoods which are descending into chaos as a result.

Green Bay Students Would Benefit from Educational Options

Governor Scott Walker’s budget proposal was big on money for K-12 public education – to the tune of more than $600 million over 2 years – but small on expanding education options for Wisconsin families. Fortunately the Governor isn’t the only one with a say on this matter. A day after Walker’s budget address, State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said lifting the caps on enrollment for the statewide school voucher program, Wisconsin Parental Choice Program was “absolutely” something the Senate Republicans would consider.

This is promising news. The current unfair enrollment caps and income limitations placed on the choice program are arbitrarily hindering growth and shutting the schoolhouse door on Green Bay families looking for education options.

–SNIP–The Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) allows eligible families to use a state-funded voucher to send their child to a private school of their choosing. This gives alternatives to the traditional education system that the evidence shows produce better results for students—and we don’t even have to look outside of Wisconsin for the evidence of this. The school choice program in Milwaukee has been quite beneficial in improving the educational outcomes for kids in the City. Academic studies have shown that students in choice schools are more likely to graduate, have higher test scores, and are less likely to become involved in criminal activity. The success has led to rapid growth in the program, with more than 27,000 students enrolled during the previous school year.

Dems Used Fake News Against Scott Walker

RUSH: Here is B.J. in Milwaukee. Hey, B.J., great to have you, get started with you here. How are you doing?

CALLER: I’m doing well. Hi, Rush. Last hour you made a comment about the Democrats linking the Russian suspicion to Trump for even as long as eight years, and who cares if there’s no results, it reminded me of something here in Wisconsin with the John Doe investigation into our great governor, Scott Walker.
