Wisconsin Workers Boo Scott Walker’s Failed Record on Jobs

Yesterday, at a Glenn Grothman town hall in Two Rivers, Wisconsin workers booed Scott Walker’s failed jobs record. After constituents talked about their own struggles with finding work, Grothman defended Scott Walker, at which point the room erupted into loud boos.
American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following comment:
“It’s no surprise Wisconsin workers are fed up with Scott Walker–he’s failed to fulfill his promises of job creation as Governor and by doing so, has failed Wisconsin.”

Wisconsin worker: “Ironworks closed their doors. I worked there for 45 years since I was 18 years old. I’d like to know why you and the rest of the Republicans in this state didn’t even bother coming to help us and try to save this company of 123 years. Everybody talks about jobs, jobs, jobs – you just did. What about saving the jobs we have? These […]

BREAKING: Trump Administration “Effectively Endorsed” Moore for Senate

“One of Donald Trump’s closest advisors just practically endorsed a serial child molester,” said American Bridge spokesperson Allison Teixeira Sulier. “That the White House is enabling a sexual predator in the name of partisan politics is absolutely disgusting and the American people will hold Trump and his entire party accountable.”

Following the first allegations of sexual assault against Moore, American Bridge launched digital ads against GOP candidates for U.S. Senate who shamefully stayed silent, including Sen. Dean HellerRep. Martha McSally, and Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel.

BREAKING: Dean Heller Votes to Hike Taxes On Middle Class

Heller’s Plan Would Increase Taxes on Nevadans and Strip Thousands of Health Care

In response to Sen. Dean Heller’s vote in the Senate Finance Committee to push through a tax plan that would cut taxes on the rich, paid for by hiking taxes on the middle class, American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp made the following statement:

“With this vote, Dean Heller just put himself on the side of millionaires and big corporations, who will see a massive tax cut paid for by hiking taxes on middle class Nevadans. His plan helps corporations ship jobs oversees, and even creates a new tax break for corporate jet owners. Just as bad, Heller’s plan would strip health care from thousands of Nevadans, hiking premiums for thousands more. Every word of this disastrous tax bill is proof that Heller has totally lost touch with Nevadans after a decade in Washington.”
