Vote! Of course, it’s a waste of time. But you have to in order to keep up appearances. Wouldn’t want the working stiffs to get any ideas.

Tea Party governor betrays Wisconsin values | Washington Times Communities

However, the governor said it was his way or the highway. In doing so, Governor Walker betrayed Wisconsin’s proud progressive values.

Soon the streets were filled with teachers, bus drivers, toll collectors, janitors, cafeteria workers, fire fighters and police, all public employees, marching in solidarity. They knew what kind of stinky cheese Governor Walker was peddling: union busting.

Claiming Wisconsin is in dire straits, the likes never seen before, Governor Chicken Little was manufacturing a crisis to end collective bargaining. Actually the sky was not falling.

This past January the State’s own non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau estimated that Wisconsin will end the 2009-2011 budget biennium with a budget surplus of $121.4 million.

There would have been more in the state coffers if earlier this year, the Governor and the Republican Legislature hadn’t seen fit to give tax breaks to businesses and the wealthy to the tune of $117.2 million.

  1. Surplus? come to Wa. st. where the liberals have taken a huge surplus in 2003, and turned it into a deficit of billions. How? unchecked welfare to the nondeserving, and free healthcare to Illegals. Thus busting unions here to.
