  1. Danny Concannon Washington Post ”Mrs. Vanderfleet, you and Arnold Vinick have started blue wave tours in your respective states. What is the blue wave movement and what does it mean for the future of the DNC and America?
  2. Stop 1: Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "Good Evening my friends it is great to be here with you in my hometown. I grew up just down the road on my families dairy farm. I learned a lot of lessons from this community and I want to talk about a couple of those with you today. The first one is to be humble. I was always told to never forget my roots and I haven't, just asked Kate she wouldn't allow it. If it were not for my roots, this community and the great people of Wisconsin I would not be where I am today. It was a great honor to represent you in the Governor's mansion and now in Washington. The second lesson I learned was hard work. Growing up on a farm is not an easy task having demanding chores and school but through the challenge a work ethic was created. I have taken that worth ethic with me through college, my time owning a business, and now into politics. Since being elected to Washington, I have introduced a number of legislation that will better this community that I love and other communities across this country. These bill are very dear to my heart as they strengthen our education system, strengthen our energy independence, and strengthen how we approach civil rights. Unfortunately, they run a very low chance of ever being debated on the House Floor because in the polarized system we have today Republicans will only bring Republican sponsored legislation to the floor. This a sad moment for democracy and it is not what the founders envisioned, but since this is a democracy we can change the players. We are close to finishing up the first quarter of 2017 so we will see the landscape start to shape for midterms very quickly. We can help define that shape and take back congress. As we leave here today, I vow to spend my effort to winning back both chambers and with your help we can make a blue wave happen across this country. We will take back our democracy and lead our country as it should be led. This is my first stop across the state and we will grow this movement exponentially as we move closer to achieving our goal. We are the party of inclusion and our country needs leaders that are inclusive to everyone. Thank you and God Bless the United States of America."
  3. Hi Sarah, I am conflicted with the first docket. I opposed the President’s immigration policy because it included an unnecessary physical border wall, but thanks to reasonable representatives working together in Washington we were able to remove any future construction of a physical border wall. I am now voting in favor of the bill as it has key components that I support such as DACA, no future separation of children from their families, and a virtual wall. I am proud that we were able to come to a bipartisan approach. Now there is a bill that I am opposing and no matter how we modify it I can not support it. There is a bill on the docket that supplies a major tax cut to corporations. GOP claim that it will be a boost to the economy but in reality it is just boost CEO salaries and results in cuts to domestic spending such as education, infrastructure and Medicare. What the GOP fail to realize is that when you cut revenue cuts to spending are required and despite the fact that we spend more on defense than the next 10 countries combined the GOP will not cut defense spending. It will be the American people that pay the price for CEO kickbacks.

  6. Congressman Arnold Vinick hosts his introductory press conference. "Good Afternoon ladies and gentlemen. First I would like to say it is great to be here in Washington. Having served as Governor it was a great honor to serve the people Wisconsin and now it is a great honor to serve my constituents, but also Americans all over this great nation. Having just arrived in Washington a few days ago I wanted to highlight some key focuses of mine before we get into your questions. As many of you know congressional leaders have started to introduce their legislative agendas and I am no different. I am pleased to announce that I have introduced a series of bills that will improve education across this country, legislation that strengthens American workers, and the continued improvement of civil rights legislation with Equality Act. I am very optimistic we will be able to accomplish great things. Now I turn it to you for your questions. "

  10. Recently, President Macmillan federalized the National Guard in 3 states on the southern border. Congressman Vinick led the charge against that action and was first to make a floor statement. Here were his comments. "I rise today to condemn the President for his extremist move of federalizing the national guard. This legislation will secure the border and the American people deserve better than a President that throws a temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. The American people have spoken and so has this chamber. I urge all my fellow representatives to condemn extreme measures." Congressman Vinick had this to say after his floor speech: "I am proud so many other Representatives joined me in condemning these actions. The American people elected Mac to lead, not to throw a temper tantrum just because Congress disagrees with him. In fact the American people also disagree with him at an overwhelming amount, 61% of Americans do not want a physical border wall. This action is so extreme that it shows we have a trigger happy President that is not ready to lead. To lead on must not allow his emotions to cloud his judgement. Unfortunately, the President allowed that very thing and I pray that no one gets hurt due to this irrational executive order. "

  12. Voting for the first dockets has begun and Arnold Vinick, a business owner and former Governor of Wisconsin, voted against the tax cut. "Why did i vote no? The answer is that this tax cut is designed to boost the salaries of CEOs of big corporations. It does not help working America, in fact it does the complete opposite. When we look at tax cuts we have to look at relative spending of the United States. It's like balancing a check book and that is some that Republicans have forgotten. By reducing the corporate tax on all corporations the U.S, budget now is missing revenue that was previously there. That means spending cuts and since we have a Republican President and Republican Congress those cuts will come from domestic items that impact everyday Americans since they will not cut from the defense budget. That mean less money for education, less money for infrastructure, and less money for medicare. Unlike the Republicans, I care about improving our domestic policy and I would continue to be able to spend money on a better future than give CEOs another kickback. That is why I voted No on this bill and urge the Senate to do so as well when it is brought before that chamber."

    @DannyConcannon One may wonder where the appropriations will come from since the Administration would not be able to use any funds from the immigration bill.

  16. Recently, President MacMillan announced his selections for his cabinet. Here is what former Governor and Wisconsin Representative Arnold Vinick had to say. ”I urge my Senate colleagues to do their due diligence when confirming these nominees and do not rush the process just because the President states they are qualified. Looking into one nominees creditionals it raises many questions regarding whether or not he is qualified to serve as Secretary of State. I am referring to former Congressman Walter Reed. I will be glued to my television watching the confirmation to see answers.”

    @DannyConcannon

    @DannyConcannon Does the President not believe in the virtual wall he is set create? Does he not have faith in border security agents? Both are enough secure the border from families attempting to start a better life. Children being detained by soldiers with M4s is not acceptable imagine of US humility.

This legislation will secure the border and the American people deserve better than a President that throws a temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way.

    Revenue Neutral Corporate Tax Reduction Act

    Mr. Speaker, I rise in objection to this bill even with the amendment that my friend from Nevada has introduced. This legislation is designed to give corporations that make millions of dollars in revenue and pay CEOs millions of dollars in salary each year bigger bonuses bigger salaries. Trinkle down economics did not work with Reagan and Will not work today. Hard-working Americans will not see a difference. The notion that this legislation will create jobs is a farce. All this legislation is designed to do is allow the rich to get richer. I yield

    Border Security and Immigration Reform Act

    Mr. speaker, my fellow representatives, I rise today do you thank all of those who supported the Alexander amendment. This amendment is vital to passing a bipartisan immigration bill this session. The American people indicate that they do not want a physical border wall because it is not safer and it’s a huge cost to the taxpayer. This virtual wall is a 21st-century solution to our immigration problem at the border. They virtual wall will keep our border states secure, more secure than what a physical barrier would do. We can all stand together proudly and celebrate that we creating a immigration bill is worthy of the American people. I yield
