White House adviser says Wisconsin deserves better

White House Deputy Senior Adviser David Simas said President Obama inherited the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, pulled the country out of recession, stabilized the economy and put it back on the path to recovery.

In contrast, he said Wisconsin took a different path and now lags behind other states in the economic recovery. He said that is a direct result of a failed, partisan and ideoglogical lack of leadership Gov. Scott Walker has brought to Wisconsin.

“Wisconsin deserves better,” he said.

Simas also praised Mary Burke, saying she would be focused on long-term solutions rather than political gimmicks and short-term division. He said she helped build a company in Trek Bicycle that employs nearly 1,000 people in the state and sells a Wisconsin-made product all over the world.

He also singled out her work for the Boys and Girls Club, saying it has not been done for political gain or as a stepping stone, but because she has a core belief that children need a community to help lift them up.

“That tells you as much as you need to know about the governor Mary Burke will be for the state of Wisconsin,” he said.
