On Friday the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel featured an article quoting the Wisconsin State Legislature’s budget office had reported that under Governor Walker’s budget proposal, the state would be required to borrow nearly $1 billion dollars over the two year period. Most of that money, $994 million, would go to the transportation budget. Now, I am [...]
Although I haven’t always agreed with Superintendent Evers on some of his decisions with the DPI, he has shown the ability to work with Governor Walker. He is a far better supporter of public education than nearly anyone currently resident in state government. And his opponent, State Representative Don Pridmore (R – Hartford) who recently [...]
Since the announcement by retired Appeals Court Judge Neal Nettesheim that the John Doe investigation around members of Governor Scott Walker’s former County Executive staff was closed, we saw exaggerated weeping and gnashing of teeth on the left and gloating on right…well nothing in the statement from Judge Nettesheim would indicate that either party is [...]
Before I get accused of ignoring the rest of the world of politics in favor of teasing Governor Walker, I’ll announce that this is the last governor post for February 2012…no…really! But isn’t it just a little bit interesting that Governor Walker will talk to eleven Wisconsin Native American tribes about a new casino but [...]
In his discussion today with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, covering the expansion of off reservation tribal casinos in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker suggested that he would only approve a new casino if the other tribes reach a ‘consensus’ on permitting a new casino! Yes that’s exactly what he said but it’s [...]
Governor Walker held one of his periodic touch bases with the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel today…and we will see their interpretation of his sage wisdom via any number of articles over the next few days…but one of the first items of discussion was the approval process for any new off reservation tribal [...]
I guess that I shouldn’t be surprised…but after all of the rhetoric about transparency and leaving the pork and nonsense out of bills where they don’t belong…politicians still try to bury special interest perks or non-budget stuff in inappropriate places.
One of the most egregious recent sitings is Governor Walker’s inclusion for the repeal of [...]
Here’s my synopsis of Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s budget address:
More state government intrusion into the affairs of local governments. Scott Walker wants to end dependence on the government for things like healthcare, living expenses, food, etc. No word though on when Scott Walker will end his dependence on the government for things like healthcare, [...]
This is well worth a read…
Dear Gov. Walker,
Ever since the recall election, the media has worked to paint a curious portrait of you as some kind of “moderate,” stressing always your someday-hopes of a bid at the presidency — assuming all that John Doe stuff goes away. Just this week, USA Today even [...]
Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his rubber-stamp legislature should read this before they continue to deceive Wisconsin’s citizens about the “job creation” potential of an iron mine in northwestern Wisconsin. Mining could be a huge economic boost for the state, say proponents of an iron ore mine in northwestern Wisconsin.
But it hasn’t been a [...]
