Yesterday we noted the details of a bill introduced by Wisconsin's new Tea Party Republican Governor Scott Walker that would increase payments from public sector employees while eliminating collective bargaining powers for unions (including teachers)while also introducing unprecedented executive powers to terminate state employees with little due process.

Let the games begin!
Ping for your WI list.
E-mail the Gov and let him know you stand behind him if he follows through.
Wish we had a Walker here in MN.
This is really a good day for Wisconsin. If the federal government won’t get their fiscal house in order, the states will and must.
Now we need a showdown between a couple of courageous governors and zer0 over health care or EPA abuses.
Let’s roll! Fight the Left for liberty!
lots of great comments here:
Walker declaring war on unions, labor says
thanks for posting the governors email address. I just sent him an email supporting his budget. I do not live in WI but believe all correspondence will be appreciated.
Cut 50% of those idiots and you have a good start towards giving the tax payers thier moneys worth.
Look at each department and clear out the deadwood.
Use hidden cameras or whatever it takes just get it done.

Policeman: My salary went up 2%. And after the increase in my healthcare costs went in, do you know how much my check went up Sir? $4. How am I supposed to live on that?
Gov. Christie: Heres the difference. Youre getting a paycheck. And there are 9% of the people in the state of NJ who are not.

and view the photos from yesterday’s organized march. What a bunch of pansy whiners. One gal clearly in her 40’s is listed as a “retired teacher”.. WHAT??? holding a shoe to protest like in the Middle East. How clever, huh? Other signs read “Worker’s Rights, Human Rights” WHAT??? Some were UWM Students. Now THAT’s a great way for daddy’s money to be spent. Same old, same old.
State workers - da party is over!

Thanks. That was good! I would have asked him, “How are you living now on what you made before the 2% raise? Keep it up.”
Welcome to Reality, liberals.
And FWIW, the polls closed 10 minutes ago - Judge David Prosser has 45% of the vote already to run for our Wisconsin Supreme Court! Wa-Hoo! I won't count my chickens before they're hatched, but those are pretty darn good odds! All of this 'protestin' the Governor' today made the Libtards FORGET that we're EASILY going to seat another CONSERVATIVE on Wisconsin's Supreme Court! Woot-Woot! :)
