National Federation of Republican Women

Supports Ryan's Response to State of Union

Welcomes Message of Limited Government, Spending Cuts, Debt Reduction

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Sue Lynch, president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement in support of Congressman Paul Ryan's (R-WI) response to the State of the Union address:

"I applaud the strong Republican response delivered by Congressman Paul Ryan following the State of the Union address. Due to the harmful effects of President Obama’s stimulus spending spree and open-ended healthcare entitlements, Republicans owe Americans ‘a better choice and a different vision.’

"Congressman Ryan reaffirmed the Republican commitment to limited government and highlighted specific measures the new Republican majority has already implemented to begin to restrain federal spending and the spiraling deficit.

"It is time that the White House and Democrats in Congress shift their rhetoric to results. We hope Democrats will follow the example of the new Republican majority as we take action to cut spending, reduce the debt, help create jobs and prosperity, and reform government programs."

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.

National School Choice Week EVENTS Jan 26 and Jan 27

Celebrate National School Choice Week

January 26 - Eagle River
January 27 - Woodruff

National School Choice Week will sound
call for immediate education reform.

Citizens from across the Northwoods will gather for a screening of the award-winning documentary, The Cartel on January 26, 2011 and January 27, 2011 to commemorate National School Choice Week.

Kim Simac, Founder of The Northwoods Patriots, is confirmed as a speaker at the event. This FREE event, which is sponsored by The Northwoods Patriots, will take place at 7:00 pm at Vilas Theatre at 214 East Wall Street in Eagle River on Wednesday the 26th, and on Thursday the 27th at 7:00pm at the Lakeland Cinema located in Woodruff, Wisconsin.

The Cartel—which portrays a public education system that is beholden to special interests, ignores the needs of parents, and misallocates hundreds of millions of dollars intended to help children—has served as a rallying cry for advocates who want to give parents immediate educational options for their children. The trailer and reviews are available at:

National School Choice Week, January 23-29, 2011, will shine an unprecedented spotlight on the need to dramatically improve educational outcomes for children and will highlight the benefits of school choice programs. Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate in events across the country during the week, which is being organized by more than 150 national and state groups.

“This event in Eagle River will continue an important debate on the need to provide parents with access to the best schools for their children,” said Kyle Olson, executive director of National School Choice Week. “At the end of the week, we hope that more parents will begin to demand enhanced educational options for their children and that lawmakers in Wisconsin and across the nation will take notice.”

12 Jobs Lost, Over a Billion in Tax-payer Dollars Saved

Only 12 losing jobs from train cancellation

Wisconsin had said 80 jobs were in jeopardy
By Larry Sandler of the Journal Sentinel
Dec. 31, 2010

Only 12 workers are losing their jobs because a high-speed rail project was canceled, far less than the 80 layoffs predicted by outgoing Gov. Jim Doyle's administration, state and corporate representatives say.

Job losses have been a major issue for supporters of the aborted plan to link Milwaukee and Madison with 110-mph passenger trains. Doyle, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and other backers say the federally funded $810 million project would have created thousands of jobs.

The route would have extended Amtrak's existing Milwaukee-to-Chicago Hiawatha line to Madison. It eventually could have been extended to the Twin Cities, as part of a Midwestern network of fast, frequent trains.

But canceling the rail line was a key plank in the platform of Governor-elect Scott Walker, who defeated Barrett in the Nov. 2 gubernatorial race. Walker said he didn't want state taxpayers to pick up operating costs of $7.5 million a year, after fare revenue, although revised ridership projections could have cut the taxpayer share by $2.8 million and the state could have used federal funds to cover most of the cost.

After Walker was elected, Doyle froze work on the route. The U.S. Department of Transportation later withdrew nearly all of the $810 million stimulus grant and redistributed the money to other states' train projects.
The week after the election, Doyle said stopping the rail project would cost the state 412 jobs in the near future.

But about 330 of those jobs had not yet been created. They were potential jobs at companies that had either been awarded contracts but had not yet started work, or that would have won contracts not yet awarded.

That left about 80 people who were already working on the project and whose jobs were in jeopardy, according to state officials. Of those, 70 were employed at HNTB Corp. and CH2M Hill, two major engineering firms active in planning the rail line.

HNTB spokeswoman Sara Prem said ending the project "has had no significant impact" on the Kansas City-based firm's employment.

And at CH2M Hill, "We are working very hard to redeploy our staff to other projects. We do not expect to lay off employees at this time," said John Corsi, spokesman for the Colorado-based firm.

In November, a representative of DAAR Engineering said the Milwaukee firm laid off two employees after Doyle suspended work on the job.

The remaining 10 workers are at the state Department of Transportation. They are in the process of wrapping up the project and are expected to be laid off sometime in January, said Cari Anne Renlund, executive assistant to state Transportation Secretary Frank Busalacchi.

At its peak in 2012, the rail project was expected to create 4,732 direct jobs in construction, at supply companies and in government, with 55 permanent jobs after service started in 2013.

Among the potential suppliers was Talgo Inc., the Spanish train manufacturer with a new plant on Milwaukee's north side.

The company is producing two trains for the Hiawatha and two trains for Oregon. It had hoped to hire 125 people if the state exercised an option for two more trains to extend service to Madison.

But after the project was canceled, Talgo said it would end production after finishing its existing work in early 2012, then convert its factory into a maintenance base for the Hiawatha trains. Talgo plans to cap hiring at 65 to avoid laying anyone off in the transition from manufacturing to maintenance.
Rail supporters say hundreds, if not thousands, more jobs would have been created by the project's spinoff economic effects. That impact is harder to measure reliably, however. A Madison businessman has dropped plans for a restaurant near that city's planned train station.

In another development, an attempt to send Walker an open letter from business leaders critical of losing the federal funds has collapsed because Republicans refused to sign it, an organizer said.

A bipartisan group of local communications professionals, led by public relations executives Jason Lusk and Christel Henke, had circulated the letter, telling the Republican governor-elect that signers are "gravely disappointed over the loss of $810 million that could have been invested in our state," along with the loss of jobs and track improvements for freight rail.

The letter also urged "greater thoughtfulness, civility, creativity and compromise in the future" than the rail debate displayed.

But Lusk said GOP rail supporters - even some who helped draft the letter - backed out of signing it.

Some called the letter "too strident" toward Walker, while "others told us they were concerned that criticizing Governor-elect Walker would harm their efforts to bid on state projects," Lusk said by e-mail.

"In the end, we were left with a few dozen signatures, many from Democratic supporters, none from outspoken Republicans."

With that split mirroring the election debate, in which Democrats such as Doyle and Barrett attacked Walker's stand, the letter lost its original meaning, Lusk wrote.

He said his group's members "will continue to advocate forcefully for Milwaukee's business community to engage the new administration with an independent voice."

DREAM Act - amnesty bill may come to vote Nov 29!

DREAM Act Vote May Take Place After Thanksgiving!

-- from the Fair Action Alert by the Federation for American Immigration Reform
Yesterday afternoon Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chairwoman, Rep. NydiaVelazquez (D-NY), announced that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tentatively set a vote on the DREAM Act as soon as November 29th! (Capital Wire PR, Nov. 16, 2010)

During her announcement at the Latino Leaders Network luncheon, Rep. Velazquez called for all Americans to contact their Congressmen to urge passage of the DREAM Act. (Id.) According to the latest reports from Capitol Hill, Democratic House leaders may even be so desperate as to amend the DREAM Act to the Help Haiti Act of 2010 (HR 5283)—a bill that grants green cards to about 1,400 Haitian orphans while they are in the process of being adopted by Americans. (CQ Today, Nov. 17, 2010)

FAIR estimates that 2-3 MILLION illegal aliens will be eligible for amnesty under the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act:

  • Grants illegal aliens “conditional” permanent resident status upon the receipt of a high school diploma, or simply enrollment in a college program or the military;
  • Grants these aliens normal LPR status (green cards) upon finishing two years of college or service in the military—requirements the Obama Administration can WAIVE.
  • Authorizes states to give illegal aliens in-state tuition so that your tax dollars will openly be subsidizing illegal immigration; and
  • Makes newly amnestied aliens eligible for numerous taxpayer-funded student loan programs.

Although touted by its sponsors as a way to give illegal alien children a pathway to citizenship, in reality, the House version of the DREAM Act has NO AGE LIMIT (H.R. 1571). Moreover, once illegal aliens receive amnesty they will be able (at the age of 21) to petition the federal government to bring in their parents, siblings, and other family members.

Call your Representatives NOW and tell them that you want our immigration laws enforced, not another amnesty that encourages more illegal immigration. Tell them:

  • The DREAM Act rewards those who broke U.S. immigration laws and only encourages more illegal immigration;
  • The DREAM Act unfairly allows illegal alien students to tap federal and state benefits, when those benefits are desperately needed by Americans who are struggling every day to make ends meet.
The open borders lobby is counting on you to be distracted during the Thanksgiving holiday so that they can pass this amnesty bill as soon as Congress returns! Please act now and continue to reach out to your Representatives next week while they are home in their districts. If you don’t take action, the only voices they will hear will be the ones that support amnesty, open borders, and immigration policies that serve special interests, not the interests of Americans.

Contact your representative Dr Steve Kagen now so he knows we are watching this lame duck session!   Email form for Kagen.

Protect US food growers / farmers

Say no to the 'Food Safety Bill!'


In the Senate of the United States, private food producers were spared the axe last night.
America spoke again last night and the Senate attempted to salvage bad legislation that would “preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes.”

S 510 puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, in the event of contamination or emergency.

At 6:30 E. S. T. the senate set off final the vote until Monday, November 29th

Republican Reid Ribble unseats Democrat Steve Kagen in 8th Congressional District race

Republican newcomer Reid Ribble faced a roaring crowd Tuesday night as the results of the midterm elections became clear — on a wave of anger with incumbents and the sluggish economy, the GOP took control of Congress and statewide offices in Wisconsin and across the country.

Like many winners in the 2010 midterm election, Ribble entered Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional race as someone new to politics and elections without any previous experience in elected office. The GOP backed a wave of unknown first-timers to help take the U.S. House, close the gap in the U.S. Senate and add more governorships to their ranks.

“I think there’s a message being sent to President (Barack) Obama, quite frankly, that (voters) felt the government overreached and now we want you not to reach so far,” said Ribble, who moved from Kaukauna to the town of Lawrence to run in the 8th Congressional District against incumbent Democrat Steve Kagen.

Ribble defeated two-time incumbent Kagen, D-Appleton, grabbing 55 percent of the vote. With all but one of 432 precincts counted, Ribble had 144,288 votes to 118,617 for Kagen (45 percent).

After voting Democrat in every presidential election since 1988, Wisconsin looked more red than blue on Tuesday. Voters ushered in a new group of Republicans into the governor’s mansion with the election of Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker. The party also picked up seats in the U.S. Senate and two Congressional seats.

Ribble joined Republican Ron Johnson, another fresh face with more experience in business than politics, in decisive wins Tuesday night.

Johnson, owner of a manufacturing company in Oshkosh, easily unseated Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Middleton, who will walk away from Washington after 18 years in the upper chamber with recent polls showing he’s still popular in Wisconsin. As of press time, Johnson had 54 percent of the statewide vote with 57 percent of precincts counted.

While Walker had considerable more political experience than Ribble and Johnson, he effectively tapped into the same “less taxes, smaller government” mantra that Republicans nationwide ran on to take the governor’s office being vacated by Democrat Jim Doyle.

Walker easily defeated Barrett with 52 percent of the vote and 69 percent of precincts reported thanks to a party that rallied following a contested primary. After Walker defeated Mark Neumann the two worked together to help bridge together areas where Neumann out performed Walker, including much of Northeast Wisconsin. Walker garnered 56 percent of the vote in Brown County on Tuesday.

But it wasn’t a clean sweep for the GOP. Though Republican Sean Duffy won the 7th Congressional seat long held by Democrat Dave Obey over Julie Lassa, Democrat Ron Kind staved off serious opposition from Republican Dan Kapanke to hold the 3rd District.

Still, the victory was decisive, and Republicans that threw darts from the outside for the past two years will now have significant leveraging power in Congress and state capitols nationwide.

“I do know this: this is going to be a pretty healthy mandate. If the house flips 45 or 50 seats, there’s a message that’s being sent to the other side, and that is we want something different,” Ribble said. “We want a government that will reach across the aisle. This type of rhetoric where the Republicans can sit in the back and all that kind of stuff, that stuff’s got to end.”

Rvier of red buries the blue (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel state elections summary)

Wisconsin only state where Democrats lost governor, Senate seat, Legislature (link includes article and various election videos)

On a night when America turned from blue to red, few states swung harder than Wisconsin, where Republicans experienced their greatest electoral gains in decades, picking up a governor, Democrat Russ Feingold's U.S. Senate seat, both state legislative chambers and two U.S. House seats.

A battleground state that Barack Obama dominated two years ago dealt him and his party a sharp political rebuke Tuesday, as Democrats lost ground with one key voting group after another - independents, blue-collar whites, suburbanites.

Nationally, the GOP recaptured the U.S. House and whittled away at the Democrats' big Senate majority, transforming both the balance of power in Washington and the electoral map heading into the 2012 election for president.

Here in Wisconsin, Republicans gained a governor and U.S. senator in the same election for the first time since 1938. This was the only state in the country where Democrats lost the governorship, a Senate seat and an entire legislature.

Wisconsin has now had two back-to-back elections in which each party won historically large victories - a sign of the volatility of the times, of the economic turmoil of the region, and of a swing electorate that neither side can take for granted.

Two years ago, Democrats achieved their biggest presidential win in Wisconsin since 1964. Obama carried more counties in Wisconsin than any other state, painting the state blue from city to suburb to countryside.
This year, Republicans had their best midterm election in 72 years.

Was this simply another "no" vote against the party in power, much like rejection of Republicans in 2006 and 2008?

Or were voters making a more conservative statement about government overreach?

There were signs of both in this election.

If the exit polls are correct, this was a distinctly more conservative electorate than the one four years ago that re-elected a Democratic governor, Jim Doyle.

It also was an electorate shaped by economic discontent and political dissatisfaction, with a bare majority of Wisconsin voters disapproving of the Obama presidency, and 63% dissatisfied or angry about the way the federal government is working.

The economy was overwhelmingly the top concern of voters; nothing else was close. And much like two years ago, nine out of 10 Wisconsin voters said they were worried about the direction of the nation's economy next year.

The result was something easily recognizable to Republicans this summer and fall, because they'd been on the opposite end of the same frustration and unhappiness. "It's just like '08 and '06 - in reverse," said state GOP chair Reince Priebus last month.

Tuesday's election cost two Democratic incumbents their jobs (Sen. Feingold and U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen of Green Bay), launched new Republican careers (Senate victor Ron Johnson and congressional winners Sean Duffy of Ashland and Reid Ribble of Neenah), elevated Scott Walker to a high-profile Midwestern governorship, and gave one of the GOP's ascendant national figures (Rep. Paul Ryan of Janesville) a major new platform in the national debate. Ryan will become the budget chair in the GOP-controlled House, where he's expected to play a central role in the tug-of-war between the parties over spending, taxes, and the size and role of government.

Both of the Democrats at the top of the ticket, Feingold and gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett, lost ground with key swing constituencies that favored Obama two years ago: suburbanites, blue-collar whites, political independents.

One of those groups, blue-collar white voters (those without college degrees), looms especially large in Wisconsin, making up 55% of the electorate Tuesday. Democrats cannot do well statewide in Wisconsin without performing well with this group. Obama won these voters in Wisconsin in 2008, winning 52%. But on Tuesday, Feingold won only 41% and Barrett only 40% of these voters.

The exit polls suggested that the electorate in Wisconsin was more conservative than the one four years ago but a little less conservative than some pre-election polling suggested it would be. Self-described conservatives made up 36% of the total vote, higher than the 27% of four years ago, but not as high as in 1994, when they made up 42% of the Wisconsin vote.

Democratic and Republican voters turned out in roughly equal numbers.

That was also a change from four years ago, when Democratic voters were 38% of the total vote and Republicans 34%.

Change is biggest factor

But it was more than just the makeup of the electorate that shaped the outcome Tuesday. Shifts in public sentiment were key to the GOP victories. In this election, the change agents were the Republicans, not the Democrats.

The exit polls showed that almost a third of the voters in the U.S. Senate race cited change as the biggest factor in their vote, and they broke for Republican Johnson 3-to-1.

This was the first time in Wisconsin since 1980 that more than one incumbent member of Congress lost in the same election, and the first time since the mid-'90s that Republicans won a majority of the state's congressional delegation.

Almost half of Wisconsin voters (45%) favored repeal of the new health care law, according to the exit polls, and those voters overwhelmingly chose the Republican candidates for governor and U.S. senator.

Tea party supporters modestly outnumbered tea party opponents (37% to 32%) among Wisconsin voters, the exit polls showed. (Just under 30% said they were neutral).

And asked whether they think government should do more to solve problems or is doing too many things better left to individuals and businesses, 56% of Wisconsin voters said government is doing too much, while 41% said it should do more.

In traveling the distance from deep blue in 2008 to bright red in 2010, Wisconsin swung more dramatically than most states Tuesday, but it had company, especially amid the economic unease of the industrial Midwest.

Republicans made gains across the board in the region, including in states that are leading presidential battlegrounds: Ohio, Iowa, Michigan.

As a result, Obama will be campaigning throughout the Midwest in 2012 in states led largely by Republican governors, not Democratic governors.

And if anyone thought that Wisconsin, after giving Obama a blowout, 14-point victory in 2008, was no longer a true presidential battleground, this election will come as a corrective. The success of the GOP ensures that Republicans, as did George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, will have Wisconsin in its crosshairs in 2012, knowing that it's a state Democrats cannot afford to lose if they hope to win a second term for Obama.

Dan Meyer - An Incumbent we Support - Fighting for the North

Scott Walker commended Dan Meyer Sunday while in Rhinelander for his positive and forth-right campaigning:


In the last state budget, the Governor enacted a massive $2 billion tax increase. This, coupled with a nightmarish web of bureaucratic red-tape, caused even more jobs to leave our state.

DAN MEYER voted against every one of Governor Doyle’s tax increases.

DAN MEYER helped pass the CORE jobs act and proposed job friendly legislation aimed at Northwoods industries such as forest products.

DAN MEYER has championed the cause of fair school aids so that our schools can compete and produce a skilled work force.

DAN MEYER is a strong supporter of vocational education and Nicolet College which is so vital to our small businesses and our work force.

Wisconsin's high taxes force many senior citizens to leave Wisconsin. Those same taxes chase away the jobs that our young people need so they can stay here -- in the north. That's why Dan Meyer opposed every one of Governor Doyle's tax increases.

DAN has repeatedly voted to reduce taxes on small business, veterans benefits, and seniors.

Wisconsin has built one of the finest health care systems (SeniorCare) for senior citizens in the nation, and we have one of the best school systems for young people in the nation.

These efforts are wasted if seniors leave because of taxes and our young people leave because of a lack of jobs. DAN MEYER wants grandparents and their grandkids to live next door — not in the next time zone.
