Gov. Scott Walker spent his 49th birthday speaking to College Republicans Wednesday about the fundamental differences between Republicans and Democrats in light of the Nov. 8 elections.
Walker said Democrats believe in top-down government solutions while Republicans believe in ground-up individual action. He said that as long as people don’t hurt the health and safety of their neighbors, they should be able to control their own lives.
“We want to do it ourselves,” Walker said. “And as a Republican, we should be able to proudly tell people that we believe government should be limited to the things that we cannot do on our own.”
The governor highlighted the importance of assembly and senate races, specifically referencing the Marquette Law School poll released Wednesday that placed Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson and Democratic challenger Russ Feingold at a near tie.
