New Web Site Highlights John McCain’s Out of Touch
Positions on the Issues that Matter to Wisconsin

MADISON – In advance of the final presidential debate, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin today released a new Web site, “McCain vs. Wisconsin” to show how McCain’s erratic and out of touch policies would hurt Wisconsin families, and how his agenda would represent nothing more than a third Bush term that the citizens of this state can’t afford.

“From the economy, to health care, to equal pay, to rural issues, John McCain has consistently been wrong on the issues that matter most to Wisconsin families,” said Joe Wineke, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. “If John McCain thinks he can trick the voters of Wisconsin into buying his recycled George Bush policies, he is seriously mistaken.”

McCain’s Record - Out of Touch with Wisconsin:

Women in Wisconsin earn 72% of the wages of their male counterparts, but John McCain still saw it fit to skip an important vote on pay discrimination to attend campaign events—and said that he opposed the bill. 

- McCain says he’s for middle class tax relief, but his plan would give more than 70% of Wisconsin households no new tax relief at all. 
 
- Women in Wisconsin earn 72% of the wages of their male counterparts, but John McCain still saw it fit to skip an important vote on pay discrimination to attend campaign events—and said that he opposed the bill. 
 
- Wisconsin received $486 million through the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) program for dairy farmers between 2002 and 2007, yet McCain’s campaign dismissed the MILC program, saying it plays "a negative role in encouraging farmers to rely on government subsidies."

“The record is clear: when given the opportunity, Senator McCain has actively fought against the needs of Wisconsin families,” said Wineke. “McCain has sided against Wisconsin’s unions, farmers and middle class families on nearly every issue that matters.”

For this reason, www.mccainvswisconsin.com has been launched to show voters that McCain is wrong on the issues that matter to Wisconsin families.
