Moore derides Walker's belief in limited government considering his policies

U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore of Milwaukee chided Gov. Scott Walker for his claims to believe in limited government and freedom.

She said Walker has waged a war against women, school-aged children, seniors, the working poor, the environment and public transportation “all in the name of freedom and limited government.”

Moore slammed his “abusive, malicious and radical right-wing” agenda that includes legislation requiring an ultrasound before a woman can obtain an abortion and for those doctors who perform that procedure to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

“You know what I say to my buddy Scott? I say, Scott, if you believe so strongly in limited government, please get out of our uteruses,” she said.

Moore also got in a dig at Walker over his lack of a college degree. The congresswoman said she would have told Walker “if he had been better educated” that he can’t add jobs to Wisconsin’s economy by taking away opportunities.

That includes his position against accepting federal money to build a high-speed rail line between Madison and Milwaukee and to expand the Medicaid program.

Instead, she said Walker believes in a trickle-down approach. But she said Wisconsinites have been standing in a drought under Walker’s policies.

“Our economy grows from the middle out, not from the top down,” Moore said.
