Once again a Dem has to try to clean up an R mess in this case Walkers Foxxconned mess!!!

Foxconn, Wisconsin reach new deal on scaled back project

The new deal will reduce the potential tax breaks by billions of dollars and still have potential tax breaks worth more than $10 million for the company, a person with knowledge of the new contract who was not authorized to speak publicly about the deal said Monday.

The original deal with nearly $4 billion in state and local tax incentives was struck in 2017 by then-Gov. Scott Walker. It was based on Taiwan-based Foxconn’s promise to build a massive $10 billion flat screen panel manufacturing facility in Mount Pleasant, near the Illinois border, employing up to 13,000 people.

So much for Cult-45’s “Eighth wonder of the world”

Democratic Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema posted a photo of herself brandishing a ring that read “F*** Off” a little over a month after she voted against a measure to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour.

The Arizona Democrat, 44, posted the picture on Instagram on Sunday as she continues to face a backlash from within her own party for voting against the $15 minimum wage, and for teaming up with Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) on an $11 proposal.

Several progressives criticized the senator over the weekend, with one Arizona Democratic Party leadership member calling the picture of her “F*** Off” ring a “gut punch” to those who elected her.

“Sen. Sinema thinks the f*** off ring is a witty way to send a message to the people upset at her actions,” the Arizona Democratic Party’s education coordinator Brianna Westbrook tweeted. “The reality, the f*** off ring is a gut punch to the people that worked their ass off to elect her. Shameful.”

Rising with the Hill co-host and ex-Democratic House candidate Krystal Ball also tweeted: “Presuming here the F*** Off ring is directed at the working class.”

Joan Greene, an Arizona Democrat who ran for the House of Representatives last year, also reacted on Twitter, saying: “AZ/USA are relying on sound judgement [sic] & policies that help our families & businesses. Liv[e]able wage, healthcare, environment protection, strong economy are not partisan issues.

“Instead of showing contempt hold a town hall & listen to the people. Work together. Thrive together.”

sounds reasonable and it will help people.

it’s too bad we can’t have M4A. sounds like these people would be shunted to some limbo, above Medicare and Medicaid, but below what private health insurance gets.
