Super Spreaders Set Loose

Things like bars, movie theaters, concerts… you name it…– all the "super spreaders" you can imagine are open right now in Wisconsin. And the result is inevitable– in a couple of weeks we'll be worse off than we were a month ago. https://t.co/7KwHWSwwWj — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) May 14, 2020          …

Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce wants small biz handout

Amazing. Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce is asking Congress for access to taxpayer-funded "small business" grants. The lobbying group is insisting that it is struggling just after its dark money arm dropped nearly $1M on the WI Supreme Court race. https://t.co/68Tudv9Evm pic.twitter.com/GYqFkfIVu1 — Brendan Fischer (@brendan_fischer) May 6, 2020          

Exacerbation

All you self-entitled children need to remember that your protests will spread this thing further, cost more lives, and add more head aches to our already over-stressed doctors and nurses. https://t.co/Nzi4pcrmtn — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) April 18, 2020      

Predictably, Trump Comes Up Empty on Foxconn

From The White House’s official transcript:

This is just the beginning.  This is one of the largest plants in the world.  And when you think in terms of 20 million feet — if you build in Manhattan a million-foot building, that’s a very big building.  They don’t get much bigger.  And here you’re talking about more.  Think of it: more than 20 million feet.  And that’s probably going to be a minimal number.

So I’m thrilled to be here in the Badger State with the hardworking men and women of Foxconn working with you.  Moments ago, we broke ground on a plant that will provide jobs for much more than 13,000 Wisconsin workers.  (Applause.)  Really something.  Really something.  Thank you, fellas.
