Governor Walker: What Will Your Message To Gov.-Elect Evers Be?

Democrat says he’ll attraction to Walker to veto GOP energy play

Walker has six days to take action once the bills are delivered to him. -That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

The intentions behind the bills were made clear by Republican leaders - ahead of voting, state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos reminded Republican colleagues: "We are going to have a very liberal governor", he said, "who is going to enact policies that are in direct contrast to what many of us believe in".

In Michigan where newly elected Democrats will also become governor and attorney general, the Republican-controlled Legislature is working quickly to pass a new law to give themselves control over court cases involving the state, as well as a law that would strip powers from the secretary of state. Lawmakers also want to have authority to intervene in lawsuits, with a Democrat poised to take control of the attorney general's office.

In neighboring Wisconsin, the GOP-led Legislature has passed legislation to restrict the incoming Democratic administration's powers.

Nessel, for example, has said she probably will not defend a law allowing faith-based groups to refuse to serve same-sex couples who want to adopt children. Amidst similar moves by Republicans in MI and elsewhere, the situation in the badger state has attracted national attention.

She then noted that USA attorneys are unlikely to take on any potential prosecution of the president based exclusively on tapes from his former lawyer.

Mr. Trump is unlikely to accept that deal because the 2018 bill included just $1.6 billion for border fencing, well shy of what he says he needs.

One Michigan GOP target: incoming Democratic secretary of state Jocelyn Benson, who, like other Democratic secretaries of state this year, was elected on an ambitious reform agenda. They should be anxious that Democrats won't just get mad but will eventually get even.

In a tweet Wednesday, Vos accused Democrats of "exaggerating and resorting to hyperbole throughout the debate".

Walker and the Republican majorities in both houses of the state assembly have taken Wisconsin on a sharp, rightward direction, including undermining unions and weakening environmental protections. The most controversial is the Homeland Security Appropriations bill, which would include border wall funding.

Currently, Republicans have control, but this January there will be a democratic governor. Republicans had passed those laws before the elections in order to prevent even better ones from going before the voters as referenda in November. Voters in both states chose Democrats in every state-wide race. Democratic voters are more heavily clustered in cities, and Democrats say Republicans have gerrymandered election districts that give them an advantage.

Scott Walker is weighing whether to sign a sweeping package of bills that would weaken the powers of his Democratic successor.

Evers narrowly defeated the two-term Walker. But even if you agree with most of what the Republicans in Wisconsin are doing from a policy perspective, the politics on display are highly toxic.

At the end of the day, citizens are the biggest losers if politicians put their party's interest over the will of the public.

"Republicans have declared all-out partisan war rather than make it a legal battle", he said.

When the House of Representatives opens its 2019 session with a Democratic majority, representatives will be presented with a bounty of investigative opportunities. That is not a good brand in the long run.
