“I’m glad that Governor Evers finally realized what Republicans, including Senator Dan Feyen, told him nine and a half months ago – that Evers already had the money and the power to upgrade the Unemployment Insurance computer system all on his own.
He could have done something to help improve the system when thousands of people were
suffering because of his Administration’s incompetence. He didn’t.
He could have done something to help improve the system on his own when we asked him to do it in January. Or February. Or March. Or any other day of the year to help fix the system. He didn’t.
Instead of leading, he pointed fingers, cast blame, and waited until the damage was done to begin to take action. Gee, does anyone else see a pattern here?
And while Evers is taking a victory lap today, over 12,000 Wisconsinites are still waiting for
their unemployment appeal hearing to just be scheduled. The delays are inexcusable. But
unfortunately, all too predictable with Governor Evers.
