The Assembly passes the budget bill and despite Representative Suder’s written statement: “The vote we took wasn’t the easy thing to do, but it was the right thing to do”, it wasn’t the right thing to do. Aside from killing union’s rights for collective bargaining, the Republicans have sold out our state. The no-bid for state owned energy assets means that the government can sell / lease them off to the companies they deem should have them.
Who gains from that?
Walker’s largest campaign contributor: Koch Industries.
Despite their blanket denials that they will not benefit, Koch Industries will benefit the most. How will Walker turn down his buddy? The punking of Walker by Ira Murphy showed that Walker is in the Koch brothers’ pocket and truly believes what is good for them is good for him.
The sad thing is that people who do not understand how the world works, don’t understand just how bad it will be for Wisconsin with Walker as our governor.
By the way, where are the jobs Walker promised? So far, he shut down the high speed rail which would have amounted to 4000 jobs (yes, some temporary) and Talgo Inc is moving to Illinois killing even more jobs. So far, Walker has killed unions and not created one job.
Can you say RECALL, boys and girls?
Show us the JOBS you promised, Mr. Governor. If anyone deserves to be laid off – it’s this lousy state government.
