Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald statement on Governor Walker’s State of the State address:
“Wisconsin has two different directions in front of us: progress or politics.
“Under the Democrats, Wisconsin was headed toward a cliff with bad budgets, bigger government and more debt. In just one year, Republicans fixed a $3 billion deficit, cut new debt in half, held the line on taxes and improved our business climate in nearly every ranking.
“On the other hand, the Democrats spent the last year protesting, recalling and playing politics with our business climate. They know that recalls are bad for Wisconsin, but they’re pushing them anyway. For the Democrats, the state of our state won’t ever be good enough unless they’re in the driver’s seat.
“But Wisconsin needs jobs, not politics.”
