The Biden–Harris Administration is Fighting for

WISCONSIN’S WORKING FAMILIES

President Biden and Vice President Harris are delivering results for working families, while Trump is working for special interests, the ultra-wealthy, and big corporations. And, they are keeping families safe and protecting fundamental freedoms that Trump wants to rip away.

PRESIDENT BIDEN IS LOWERING COSTS FOR FAMILIES — TRUMP WOULD RAISE THEM.

Reducing inflation with wages and incomes on the rise.

✅ Lowering prescription drug prices and capping insulin at $35 a month for nearly 1.3 million Wisconsin seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries.

Trump wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would raise costs.

Over 260,000 people in Wisconsin could have to pay more, with a middle-class family facing premiums of over $11,000 more.

More than 2.4 million people with preexisting conditions in Wisconsin could be denied coverage or charged thousands of dollars more for health insurance coverage.

Lowering housing costs. President Biden and Vice President Harris’ housing plan will lower the costs of renting and buying a home. In 2023, more apartments were on track to be built than any other year on record, which will continue to bring down rent. They’re calling on Congress to provide a $10,000 tax credit for firsttime homebuyers and people who sell their starter homes and to build 2 million new affordable homes.

Trump tried to gut rental assistance and left a national shortage of affordable housing. Trump and his allies want to make it harder for many low- and middle-income families to buy a home.

Cracking down on price gouging by corporations and hidden junk fees in apartment rentals, overdraft and more.

Trump is charging families junk fees at his own resorts.

President Biden canceled $144 billion in student debt for 4 million borrowers.

Trump praised his nominees to the Supreme Court for blocking President Biden’s student loan relief plan.

Making the super-wealthy and corporations pay their fair share, while ensuring no one earning below $400,000 pays a penny more in taxes.

On average, the richest 1 percent of Wisconsinites—making around $1.5 million— got tax cuts 60 times larger than Wisconsinites in the bottom 80 percent of incomes. Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy worsened the racial wealth gap: a typical Black household got half the cuts of a typical white household.

Trump proposed cuts to Social Security and Medicare every year in office.

Lowering energy costs for rural Wisconsinites by expanding access to renewable energy for farmers and small business owners.

PRESIDENT BIDEN IS CREATING GOOD-PAYING JOBS — IT’S WHY LABOR UNIONS ENDORSED HIM OVER TRUMP.

Overseeing the creation of 175,000 jobs in Wisconsin, including over 18,000 manufacturing jobs.

Under Trump, Wisconsin lost over 82,000 jobs.

Spurring a small business boom, with over 195,000 new business applications filed in Wisconsin since the start of the administration.

Attracting billions in private-sector investments in manufacturing and clean energy in Wisconsin, creating good union jobs across Wisconsin. Under President Biden, Georgia-Pacific is expanding operations in Green Bay. Wisconsin’s largest renewable energy plant is being built in Dane County. Ingeteam, the clean energy manufacturer in Milwaukee, will expand operations and start building EV charging stations.

Thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, $6.3 billion is headed to Wisconsin to fund 507 projects, creating good union construction jobs.

Improving transportation by fixing bridges like Madison’s John Nolen Drive causeway bridges, investing over $1 billion in upgrades and repairs for the Blatnik Bridge that connects Wisconsin and Minnesota, and replacing the aging I-39/90/94 Wisconsin River bridges in Columbia County on a route that connects Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago—while also providing clean school buses across the state.

Providing clean and safe water across the state by requiring and helping fund the replacement of every lead service pipe in Wisconsin.

Oversaw the fastest rate of union growth in Wisconsin in over 30 years as the most pro-union president in history and the first sitting president to join a picket line.

Trump, on the side of corporations and billionaires, actively discouraged union membership and promised to veto the PRO Act.

Helping Wisconsin’s farmers adopt climate-resilient agricultural practices and strengthening economic development in rural Wisconsin with millions in federal support.

Connecting everyone in Wisconsin to reliable high-speed internet by 2030.

PRESIDENT BIDEN IS WORKING TO KEEP COMMUNITIES SAFE AFTER CRIME SPIKED UNDER TRUMP.

Overseeing a 20% decrease in homicides in Milwaukee, investing millions to address gun violence through community interventions, mental health support, and more.

Trump oversaw a 33% rise in homicides and a 20% increase in violent crime in Wisconsin.

Advancing accountable policing to build trust and improve public safety by fighting for the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, and in the face of Republican opposition, taking bold executive action to ban chokeholds and restrict no-knock warrants.

President Biden delivered $40 million to Milwaukee to pay new officers, handle more 911 calls, and fund community policing.

Trump attempted to cut federal funding for the police and is encouraging police to be more aggressive with suspects.

Signing the largest bipartisan gun safety legislation in 30 years to expand background checks for those under 21 and more.

Trump oversaw one of the largest spikes in gun violence in modern history and made it easier for fugitives to purchase guns.

PRESIDENT BIDEN IS PROTECTING REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS AND FIGHTING TRUMP’S ABORTION BANS.

President Biden and Vice President Harris believe medical decisions should be between a woman and her doctor and are fighting to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade.

Trump has bragged about overturning Roe v. Wade, called for punishing women who have an abortion, and is now running on a national abortion ban that would take away the freedoms of nearly 1.1 million Wisconsin women.
