It is a pity that this needs to be done, but thanks to the useless legislative two years by the national GOP under President Donald Trump giving us a blue wave, the Wisconsin legislature is having to move to limit the authority of the incoming democrat executive branch officials in the state.
They are planning on moving the primary date in 2020 in order to protect a conservative state supreme court justice, among other proposals.
In addition to moving the primary date, the proposals would weaken the governor’s ability to put in place rules that enact state laws and shield the state jobs agency from his control.
Other measures would weaken the attorney general’s office by allowing Republican legislative leaders to intervene in cases and hire their own attorneys. A legislative committee, rather than the attorney general, would have to sign off on withdrawing from federal lawsuits. That would stop Evers and incoming Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul from fulfilling their campaign promises to withdraw Wisconsin from a multi-state lawsuit seeking repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald downplayed concerns about what was being considered in the lame-duck session, saying “I don’t think it’s outrageous at all.”
“But listen, I’m concerned,” he said. “I think that governor-elect Evers is going to bring a liberal agenda to Wisconsin.”
Walker has been largely silent on what is being considered, voicing general support last month for moving the primary date. But Fitzgerald said Walker and his chief of staff had been deeply involved in crafting the measures.
The Wisconsin governor elect and attorney general elect, both Democrats, have decried the moves as “trying to invalidate the results of the November election.”
Those claims should have been laughed off the proverbial stage as the Democrats have spent four years trying to invalidate the average american voter and elevating in their place their own perverted orgy of globalism, communism, and nihilism under the guise of “Free Stuff/Orange Man Bad.”
There are no consolation prizes in politics, you either win or you die. Republicans across the country would do well to take note of this fact.
