With the latest poll numbers showing he’s in trouble with the people of Wisconsin, Scott Walker is bringing his presidential campaign to Michigan to address Tea Party activists at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.
Walker’s visit comes as Michigan’s Republican governor, Rick Snyder, is poised to expand Medicaid, while Walker has opted for a healthcare plan that refuses $4.4 billion in federal funds, forcing taxpayers to pay $133 million more to insure 90,000 fewer individuals.
“More and more Wisconsinites are coming to the unfortunate realization that they aren’t better off than they were before Scott Walker took office,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Friday. “And as Wisconsinites are losing their faith in his ability to grow our economy and create the minimum 250,000 new jobs he promised, Scott Walker is busy campaigning for president all over the country. Unless the 250,000 jobs Scott Walker promised are all related to running his corporate jets, his ‘On the Road, Again’ strategy is sure to be a loser in 2014 and 2016.”
