Statement of Madison Mayor Paul Soglin on Foxconn Deal

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 1:06pm

Foxconn is a terrible deal that will bankrupt our state and leave our kids holding the bill.

If your neighbor’s beautiful house was offered to you for $40 million dollars, you would not take the deal. If Green Bay Packer Super Bowl tickets were available for $100 million dollars each, as bad as you wanted to go, most of us would pass. The Foxconn deal is an overpayment, a rip-off, of that magnitude.

I congratulate Representative Dana Wachs and all the other legislators looking out for the best interest of Wisconsin who oppose the Foxconn deal.

The U.S. economy is rigged against the average person. It’s deals like Foxconn that are ruining Wisconsin.
