Green would hurt UW System

September 29, 2006

As we know, facts are important when deciding who to vote for in the elections this fall. Recently, Mark Green has been campaigning about how he will be good for students and tuition. The facts indicate otherwise.

Mark Green’s education plan cuts $100 million from the UW System. He voted for three consecutive tuition increases while in the Wisconsin state legislature, cast the deciding vote to cut $12 billion in federal student financial aid, and just this month voted for a house GOP budget that cuts $2.2 billion more from the U.S. Department of Education.

These and many other factors are why Mark Green scores a paltry 8 percent from the NEA on public education issues.

When Mark Green tries to deceive students about his performance on education issues, remind him of the words of Jesus from John 8:32, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
