Selling State Assets Piece By Piece

First the governor and legislature suggested that the state stop providing financial support for of all things…state parks. One of the things that most residents of the State of Wisconsin probably agree on is that the state should provide State Parks. But like a lot of other things lately, that seems to have missed the […]

Governor Scott Walker Is A Quitter

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) was supposed to be the crown jewel among Governor Scott Walker’s first term accomplishments. It was part of his agenda to downsize government and privatize government functions in one fell swoop…as well as serve as a lynch pin in his promised job development in Wisconsin.

Well since then WEDC […]

Republicans want to fire Gov. Scott Walker from job creation agency’s board

As further proof his efforts to create jobs in Wisconsin have failed, Republicans have voted to remove Gov. Scott Walker as chairman of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, the quasi-public “job creation” agency that came into being because of the efforts of Gov. Walker. In an attempt to put more oversight on the state’s fledgling […]

Scott Walker & child molester Josh Duggar palling around

Earlier tonight I wrote about Republican Josh Duggar’s admission he sexually molested juvenile females approximately 12 years ago. On the heels of that revelation, I thought this photo of Josh Duggar and Gov. Scott Walker palling around together was pertinent.

Look! It's @ScottWalker palling around with an admitted child molester! #awkward https://t.co/LOIFsMj7cy

The perks of being a million dollar donor to Scott Walker

I guess it really pays to be a big donor to Gov. Scott Walker’s burgeoning presidential campaign and the political action committees supporting that campaign. What does a million-dollar political donor get for his or her money these days?

The answer is spelled out in great detail in a handout from the super PAC supporting […]

Scott Walker exposes himself as being full of crap on foreign policy (VIDEO)

During an appearance on Face The Nation, host Bob Schieffer asked Gov. Scott Walker what his foreign policy credentials were, and GOv. Walker’s answer was revealing – as in revealing that he’s full of crap. Well, I think as a governor, it’s really ultimately about leadership. To me, in my lifetime, one of the best […]

Walker aides pushed for $4.3 million loan to now-defunct company that created no jobs

In yet another example of the graft that has plagued the WEDC, semi-public job “creation” entity created by Gov. Scott Walker, the Associated Press is reporting high-ranking aides to Gov. Walker, including then-Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch, pushed to give a $4.3 million unsecured loan to a company that created no jobs and is now defunct. […]

Then-Rep. Scott Walker wanted to give doctors ability to lie to women to prevent abortion

This is absolutely crazy…

However, if then-Rep. Scott Walker (R) had gotten his way, Wisconsin doctors who opposed abortion would have been allowed to withhold that information from the woman if the doctor feared she might get an abortion.

Along with 34 other lawmakers, Walker introduced AB 538 in September 1997. At the time, if […]

Scott Walker’s high spending, debt raising budget

Betsy Woodruff of the Daily Beast has an excellent read on Gov. Scott Walker’s high spending, debt raising budget and the problems it could pose for his 2016 presidential aspirations.

There’s just one itsy bitsy little thing in between the governor and his big announcement: the budget.

Since he laid out his budget proposal […]

Scott Walker’s promise that his tax cuts would lead to better economy, more tax revenue proven false

But remember, according to Gov. Scott Walker and his rubber-stamp Republican Legislature, their tax cuts were going to stimulate Wisconsin’s economy and lead to increased tax revenue! State GOP lawmakers won’t get any additional growth in tax money to help avoid Gov. Scott Walker‘s proposed education cuts so are instead looking at a one-shot injection […]
