Republican special session on welfare reform aims to divide rather than heal Wisconsin
MADISON — The following is a statement from Martha Laning, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Gov. Scott Walker’s call today for a special session on welfare reform.

“Gov. Scott Walker is clearly scared by Republicans’ election loss this week. So today he’s grabbing for what self-serving career politicians always do–dividing people. He is lashing out at lower-income families down on their luck to please his wealthy elite donors. His crass, calculated political move to make Wisconsin hate again is a desperate tactic pitting Wisconsinites against one another — and it will fail.”
