House highway bill bust for Wisconsin


Kudos to Congressman Tom Petri for calling a federal highway transportation bill, dubbed the "American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act of 2012" by the House leadership, for what it regardless of who is behind the measure. "It's not a jobs bill for Wisconsin," Petri, a Republican from Fond du Lac, told The Northwestern's Washington bureau reporter Larry Bivins. "They're taking jobs from Wisconsin and giving them to other states. That's why I voted against it." The reauthorization of the federal transportation bill is always a massive political circus because billions of dollars in federal ...


Petri chooses Wisconsin jobs over partisan politics


The Capital Times has always had a soft spot for Congressman Tom Petri, the former Peace Corps volunteer who represents east central Wisconsin as a relatively moderate Republican. We have called Petri out when we disagree with him. But we have also highlighted his frequent votes against war funding, his support for international health initiatives, and his passion for higher education. And we have even found ourselves endorsing him over the years. In these hyper-partisan times, that angers some folks. They think that every choice must be made along partisan lines. We disagree. And we ...


Congressman Petri to be honored at the Summit


Wisconsin’s very own Congressman Tom Petri stood against strong opposition in the House to put forth an amendment to restore bicycle funding in the Federal Transportation bill.

Tom Petri - Tom Petri heads in opposite direction on high-speed rail project
The Truth-o-Meter says: Full Flop | Tom Petri heads in opposite direction on high-speed rail project Over 31 years in Congress, U.S. Rep. Tom Petri, a Republican from Fond du Lac, has kept a pretty low profile on controversial issues. So it was a bit of a surprise to see his name on the bottom of a Nov. 17, 2010 statement that called the Madison-Milwaukee high speed rail link a "boondoggle" and declared: "This high speed rail project is a bad investment for taxpayers and our state simply cannot afford it."   Especially since Petri’s name was on an earlier letter, dated Aug. ... >> More
Tom Petri - Wisconsin GOP Rep. Petri says Obama commission recommended vouchers for Medicare
The Truth-o-Meter says: False | Wisconsin GOP Rep. Petri says Obama commission recommended vouchers for Medicare When House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan submitted his 2012 federal budget plan in April 2011, he touted how much more it cut spending, debt and deficits than President Barack Obama’s plan. Some of the loudest objections to the Wisconsin Republican’s proposal, however, decried its transformation of Medicare. MoveOn.org, a left-leaning political advocacy group, went so far as to say Ryan would abolish the 46-year-old program in 10 years. We ruled that claim False, partly because current Medicare recipients would continue to receive traditional Medicare even ... >> More
