Following months of activism by Tea Party and conservative groups in Wisconsin, Republican Gov. Scott Walker decided to officially reject millions of federal taxpayer dollars in the form of controversial ObamaCare grants that came with numerous strings attached. Critics of the Presidents wildly unpopular health law greeted the news with relief.
The timing, according to activists, was perfect a new wave of pressure was about to be unleashed on Walker from the Right just as union bosses and Democrats prepare a recall effort attempting to unseat him. Several pieces of legislation were also moving forward at the Capitol in Madison to stop any further compliance with federal mandates and to undo any damage already inflicted.

Makes it sound like giving up Free Money...
Walker/WI is the buyer, and the Feds are selling something (ie, crap). Walker/WI is just not buying it.
Perhaps Walker can volunteer for cloning. :)
I recall reading somewhere that WI law allows for unlimited contributions to the governor. Is that true?
Law professor Ann Althouse of the UW -- a "converted" Obama voter who now supports Walker -- says so. More specifically, it's not that the law says "No spending limit." Instead, it's the lack OF a law. Although there are limits in WI on spending for nearly every election, no such law exists as to recalls.
I haven't checked the law myself, but I trust Althouse on this.
