Now more than ever before, Washington D.C. needs a powerhouse of guts, power and ability to harness coalitions. When you grab his hand, look into his eyes, feel his energy, you know that God has his hand upon him.
Yep, I was there when Tommy Thompson stopped the 10 percent property tax increase occurring for 10 years in a row. The WEAC mongers attempted to intimidate us at a Joint Finance Committee sub-committee.
Tommy reduced welfare by more than all other 49 states combined. “Work-fare, Work not Welfare, Bride-fare, etc.” were copied often in other states.
The National Rifle Association said Wisconsin passed the big four, faster than any other state.
1. Pre-emption: No local unit of government can pass a law restricting firearms more than the state.
2. Range Protection.
3. Constitutional Amendments: Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
4. Right to Hunt and Fish.
Groundwork laid for the Personal Protection Act/Concealed Carry.
Tommy reflects the heart and soul of Wisconsin. A God-loving family man, sportsman, biker and a go-getter — he gets things done.
Vetoing $287 million, tax cuts, $16 Billion — and creating 740,000 jobs is a legacy, perhaps never to be done again.
Well, Washington D.C. Bureaucrats and stuffed shirt politicians — get ready to get shook up. Tommy Thompson is bringing his Harley to D.C. — right up to the Capitol’s front steps.
Eau Claire, Wis.
