Prez Obama To Visit Wisconsin After State Of The Union Address
WISCONSINREPORT.COM (01/24/2011) - On Wednesday, January 26, President Obama will travel to Manitowoc, WI, as part of his White House to Main Street Tour. Before he heads for Wisconsin, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night at 8 pm CST. Following the President's speech, networks will air the Republican version of their assessment of the Union. The Republican side will be delivered by Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Wisconsin Democrats chair Mike Tate hopes Ryan will not advocate slashing Medicare and Medicaid and endanger retirement investments of millions of Americans.
The Tuesday, January 25th State of the Union speech by President Barack Obama is being eagerly anticipated by Congressional Representatives from throughout the county, as well as state and local elected officials, businesspeople and the rest of the population. Many are wondering about the talked about possibility of members of the so-called Left and Right, sitting together, instead of on opposite sides of the aisle. Will it happen, to show a more civil attitude among politicians, or will it be political business as usual.
Judging from the comments of the chairman of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, it may be business as usual, or, perhaps, if it does happen, only a symbol without substance.
Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following news that Paul Ryan will deliver the Republican rebuttal to the State of the Union Address:
"The radical proposals in Paul Ryan's "Roadmap to Ruin" stand in stark contrast to the goals President Obama will present for our nation," Tate said.
"The vast majority of Americans support preserving social safety nets, expanding educational opportunities for our children to be successful in the growing global economy and ensuring access to affordable health care for all - none of which are offered in Ryan's Roadmap", the Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman said.
"I hope Paul Ryan takes this opportunity to offer up some concrete ideas that work to solve our economic crisis without relying on slashing Medicare and Medicaid, heaping the tax burden on working families and endangering the retirement investments of millions of Americans", WisDems chair Mike Tate said.
The day after President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, the President will tour Manitowoc's Orion Energy Systems, a power technology company that designs, manufactures and deploys energy efficiency and renewable energy technology for commercial and industrial business. The White House says he will deliver remarks on the economy to Orion employees.
In December 2009, President Obama kicked off the White House to Main Street Tour in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. Since then, he has visited Lorain County, Ohio; Savannah, Georgia; a series of cities in Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri; and Kokomo, Indiana.
In Wisconsin Wednesday, a White House spokesperson says President Obama will continue his conversation with American families and workers about rebuilding an economy that ensures America’s long-term economic competitiveness and guarantees that America and its people continue to lead in the future.
