MADISON – After being rejected by voters in 2006, career politician John Gard is running for the 8th Congressional District seat again on his same old extreme record with his same old unethical behavior. The hard-working families of northeast Wisconsin do not share his extreme values, and that's why this Bush-Cheney Republican will lose again.

During the 50 days leading up to the general election on November 4, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin will list 50 reasons why voters should reject the same old failed leadership and same old out-of-touch agenda of Republican candidate John Gard – and send Democrat Steve Kagen back to our nation's capital to represent northeast Wisconsin for a second term.

Reason #23 - Gard Tried to Cut Child Care Funds for Low-Income Families

In 1995, John Gard introduced a bill that would have significantly cut the available child care funds for at-risk or low-income families.  Not surprisingly, the bill failed to pass through the state Assembly. (Source: Assembly Bill 259, 3/23/95; Assembly Bill 259, 4/3/96.)
