Here's My Proposed Ad About Scott Walker

Walker has begun attack ads against Tom Barrett and Kathleen Falk. Here's the ad, commentary-free, I'd run in response, citing PolitiFact (where Walker checks in with about two-thirds of his statements are rated "false" at some level, and where also Falk and Barrett each have more "true" than "false" ratings).

Scroll it.

The Record

A 10-year state program that created 202 jobs at a cost of $247,000 per job was approved by former Gov. Jim Doyle.

"Wisconsin is broke," and "state government is $3 billion in debt."

A new college tuition reciprocity agreement with Minnesota "makes college education more affordable for Wisconsin residents."

Says under his budget-repair bill, "collective bargaining is fully intact."

"We gave every public employee in the state the freedom to choose whether or not they want to be in a union."

Says recall organizers "started their website last November" and began work on their effort before he even took office.

The St. Norbert College/Wisconsin Public Radio poll has "been wrong in almost every election."

"The overwhelming number" of school districts reported their staff stayed the same or grew after the 2011-’13 state budget  

"The largest category of people coming into the technical schools in Wisconsin are people with four-year degrees."

"Under our (2011-’13) budget, the average (Wisconsin) property taxpayer will save $700."

Says many public-employee unions falsely told their Wisconsin members his budget-repair bill sought 12 percent to 13 percent of their incomes for health insurance premiums.

Two years ago we had "the largest structural deficit ever in Wisconsin."

"The things I said (during the prank call by a blogger posing as GOP contributor David Koch) are the things I’ve said publicly all along" about the Wisconsin budget debate.

When it comes to protesters in Madison, "almost all" are now from outside of Wisconsin.

"I campaigned on (the proposals in the budget repair bill for Wisconsin) all throughout the election. Anybody who says they are shocked on this has been asleep for the past two years."

"The alternative" to higher state worker pension and health care payments "is to look at 1,500 layoffs of state employees or close to 200,000 children who would be bumped off Medicaid-related programs."

Wisconsin employers have repeatedly said in surveys that our anti-business litigation climate is one of the most important factors affecting their expansion decisions.

In Wisconsin, 98 percent of all small businesses will qualify for income-tax relief under my plan, freeing them to expand and create jobs.

"Scientists have shown us (that) the greater possibilities, the real science movement, has been with adult stem cell research. It has not been with embryonic."

Says Mark Neumann = Nancy Pelosi 

All Mostly False statements involving Scott Walker

"I asked the unions to pay into their own health care insurance ... and they said I was being unreasonable. I requested that they contribute toward their own pensions ... and they screamed it was unfair."

"We've seen local union after local union rush to their school boards, their city councils, their technical school boards and rush through contracts in the past two weeks that had no contributions to the pension and no contribution to health care."

Eliminating the state tax on health savings accounts will "make it easier for small business owners to provide health insurance to their employees."

"In Congress Tom Barrett voted to allow abortions through the ninth month, just moments before the baby is born."

Says Gov. Jim Doyle and the DNR have not put hunters first and mismanaged the deer herd; as a result "the deer population has dwindled."

As Milwaukee County executive, Scott Walker "eliminated the waiting list for long-term care for older adults through the Family Care program."

"Since being elected, (Tom Barrett) has dumped 8.2 billion gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan."

Nice work! Come on Democrats! It is disheartening to read the polls and see how much support Walker still enjoys.

It's a little too long. This will be several ads, I think.

25 items can scroll past in 30 seconds with an announcer saying Scott Walker's record is..."false, false...:

I like it--esp if accompanied by the obnoxious buzzer sound each time a 'false' is registered.
