August 15, 2021 - 15:52

Once again Democrats have passed a massive spending bill without a single Republican vote. They claim this bill will cost $3.5 trillion, but a more honest score shows a price tag of at least $5 trillion. They shamelessly admit their budget will explode the debt to a whopping $45 trillion by 2031.

Submission dates are September 1, 2021 to October 15, 2021.

The United States, the Wisconsin State, and the POW-MIA flags continued to fly on various flagpoles at the State Capitol.

To restore full integrity and trust in elections, we have decided to change direction. On Friday, I named Justice Gableman as Special Counsel and gave him additional authority and independence to hire more full-time investigators who will work at his direction.
