Milwaukee, WI – On Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at 2:15 p.m. CT, Reps. Gwen Moore (WI-04) and Mark Pocan (WI-02) will roll out the fourth in a new series of state-level reports outlining in stark detail how GOP-control of Washington has undermined the health and economic security of hard-working Wisconsin families.  The report comes ahead of President Trump’s trip to Mosinee, WI and will be released under embargo on Wednesday morning.  

The report exposes Republicans’ broken promises on the core economic issues at the heart of House Democrats’ For The People agenda: health costs and prescription drug prices; the GOP tax scam, stagnant real wages and unmet infrastructure needs.  At a rally in West Bend in 2016, Trump said “On taxes, I am going to give a massive tax cut to every worker and small business in this country, bring thousands of new companies and millions of new jobs onto our shores – and make it very difficult for our businesses to leave.”  

Democrats’ report found that too many Wisconsinites are being left behind by the Trump Administration and the Republican Congress:

  • 330,320 Wisconsin taxpayers will see NO tax benefit or will suffer a tax hike by 2019,
  • While the wealthiest 1 percent of Wisconsin residents received a total of more than $1.5 million, and
  • Real average hourly wages in Wisconsin have remained relatively flat, increasing just 0.5 percent from January 2017 to August 2018.
