If you’re drinking something right now you’d better swallow before you read this or you’ll have it shooting out your nostrils.
Sean Duffy is hosting a ” Hunger and Homelessness Summit ” in Wausau on December 18th! Can you say ” brazen hypocrite? ” I knew you could!
Duffy voted to cut food stamp benefits by 40 billion dollars over the next ten years, has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act without offering an alternative which leaves working families vulnerable to medical bankruptcy and crushing debt, and when over 100 constituents gathered in front of his Wausau office in the summer of 2012 demanding that he support legislation that would increase the minimum wage one of his staffers called them “a bunch of professional protesters “. What a guy.
Here’s an idea, Sean. Instead of posing for a campaign photo op at a summit of professional organizations that are actually trying to do something about these problems, why don’t YOU do something too? Grow a spine and issue a public statement in support of the ” Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013. ”
Fair wages puts a roof over the heads of, and food on the tables of, working families all across Wisconsin. That’s the Real World, Sean. Photo opportunities and cheap publicity stunts are mighty short on both shelter and nutritional value.
