Your Brain on Dope!

In August of 2017, we wrote an editorial headlined: “Legislature needs 
to fix Scott Walker's flawed Foxconn deal.” Noting former state Senate 
Minority Leader Mark Miller’s observation that “the governor has been 
suckered once again,” we argued, “Now, it falls to the Legislature to 
address the fundamental flaws in the deal Walker has cut with Foxconn. 
The power of the purse gives legislators the authority to check and 
balance Walker’s deal making, and they have a responsibility to do 
just that.” 
Instead of stepping up for sound economic development and fiscal 
responsibility, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Burlington, and Senate 
Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, lined up with Walker. They 
joined the governor in approving an arrangement that lacked meaningful 
guarantees and oversight.
