Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin on the Fourth GOP Debate

Minnesota DFL Statement

“Tonight’s GOP debate on economics had a fitting setting. In Scott Walker’s backyard, we saw candidate after candidate tout backwards priorities that have left Wisconsinites worse off.

““We’ve watched our neighbors suffer time and time again through Scott Walker’s follies as a failed leader. Like Walker, all the Republican candidates on the stage tonight favor the same failed economic policies that would take our country in the wrong direction. Hardworking Americans have worked too hard to bring our country back from the depths of the Bush Recession to throw those gains away on benefits to the super-rich.

“If tonight taught us anything, it’s that the candidates on stage are wrong for our country. We cannot afford to double down on the flawed theory of trickle-down economics and put a wealthy few ahead of the middle class.”
