Leave it to Evers: ‘Asinine’ Tony

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 22, 2020

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON —The governor who has done more to kill Wisconsin business and jobs than COVID-19 could ever do now says the Badger State’s “economy is going to tank” if residents don’t follow his economy-killing edicts.

Gov. Tony Evers again warned Wisconsinites to effectively lock themselves down or COVID WOULD DESTROY US ALL!

“If we continue to make excuses for not doing this, we will have more deaths, we will have more people with COVID-19, and frankly, we will have a lot less economic activity in the state of Wisconsin. This is a critical time, folks,” Evers said during a news conference.

“Our economy is going to tank, and no one wants that,” the Democrat added.

Too late, said state Rep. Michael Schraa.

“The economy already is starting to tank,” the Oshkosh Republican said. “This goes to show you the fact that he has never been a business owner and has no clue.” Evers spent his professional life as a teacher and as an education bureaucrat before being elected governor by some people who really wanted to smoke weed without being hassled.

Schraa is a business owner. A restaurant owner, to be precise. And Schraa, like so many of his fellow restaurant owners, has seen the damage done by the Evers administration’s lockdowns, and the governor’s latest order capping capacity at public gatherings to 25 percent.

“I have friends who have been in the hospitality business for 20, 30 years, and they’re deciding whether they’re going to declare bankruptcy if this continues,” the lawmaker said.

Schraa says Evers appears to be gearing up for to issue another lockdown. He doesn’t think businesses will comply. It would be a death sentence for many.

“It’s asinine to say the economy is going to tank. It’s already starting to tank, and we’re seeing the ramifications of that,” he said.

  • Paging Robin Vos! Paging Robin Vos! Note to the Speaker: WI obtained some REAL reforms by exhibiting some guts, led by Scott Walker. Engaging in Dementia Joe Biden basement retreats is NOT a recipe for retaining your majority. Grow a pair and do something about this leftist squish’s abuse of power. Stop counting on Rick Esenberg to bail your sissy little ass out.

  • WHY IS NO ONE ….NO ONE …NOT CALLING OUT ROBIN VOSS???
    He has done more damage than EVERS COULD EVER DO SIMPLY
    BY NOT DOING HIS JOB!!! HE COULD END THIS MASK ORDER
    TODAY …..BUT HE WILL NOT STAND UP FOR US !!!! WHY DID WE EVER VOTE ROBIN VOSS IN??? IM SICK OF ALL OF THE EXCUSES
    THAT THE REPUBLICANS DO NOT HAVE THE VOTES….THEN TAKE
    THE VOTE AND PUT IT ON RECORD FOR ALL TO SEE111
