WisDems: As Foxconn breaks ground in Wisconsin, the costs to taxpayer go up

Contact: TJ Helmstetter, tjh@wisdems.org

Statement from TJ Helmstetter, DPW spokesperson for 2018 gubernatorial race ahead of tomorrow’s Foxconn event:

“Scott Walker’s Foxconn boondoggle is costing taxpayers billions of dollars, and the investment will not be recouped until 2042. Children not yet born will be on the hook for paying for this project, which is shaping up to be much different – and much more expensive – than it was sold as. Meanwhile, Wisconsin’s schools are still feeling the pain from Walker’s massive education cuts, and Wisconsin’s roads throughout the state are crumbling as money is being diverted from other projects to accommodate Foxconn.”
