WHERE I STAND
We need to fix the broken Education Funding formula in Wisconsin and ensure every school district is receiving the funding it needs to educate our children. Our state is squandering its finances and forcing school boards across the state to rely on referendums to cover their operating budgets. It is time our state invests in our future, and stops the trend of forcing local governments to double tax our citizens because the state has not properly funded our schools.
Given the uncertainty on the federal health care front, Wisconsin should make it known that we believe in certain rules for our insurance markets regardless of what comes out of Washington:
No one should be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
There should be NO lifetime or yearly caps on coverage.
Health insurance needs to actually cover health care needs; this includes at a minimum the Essential Health Benefits.
PUT AN END TO A GERRYMANDERED WISCONSIN
Our state should not be financing the defense of partisan unconstitutional maps. With these uncompetitive safe districts we have seen citizens from both parties finding their voices unheard and their views ignored by their elected officials. At the same time our political dialog continues to veer to the extremes. We need a nonpartisan way to redistrict to ensure all voices are heard and every vote matters.
Return shared revenue to proper funding levels so municipal and county governments are empowered to provide the services we all depend on regardless of how well off the tax base is.
Stop the trend of unfunded mandates and cost shifting from state to local government coming down from Madison.
