Why Not

I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.

Transparency in Government

I enjoyed reading the article in Sunday's Journal entitled Experimentation, yes, but done transparently.  http://www.htrnews.com/article/20110111/MAN06/101110557/Mark-Pitsch-Transparency-Gov-Scott-Walker-s-record-shows-openess.  This is all that I am asking for.

In an interview with Mark Pitsch, Governor Walker states that he will ABOSULTELY  run the most open, transparent gubernatorial administration in the history of the universe.  http://www.wisfoic.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=191:december-how-open-will-scott-walker-be&catid=55:2010-columns&Itemid=55 

In this article, the co-chairs of Joint Finance, state:  “In the interest of complete transparency, and to protect the taxpayers, we request that these documents be made available on the state web page for the public, the media, and lawmakers so they can be thoroughly reviewed and analyzed,” Vos and Darling wrote in the letter. “Current state employee union contracts housed at the DOA Web page comprise 2,012 pages. We would hate to see the current batch of contracts voted upon by the lame duck Legislature without having the opportunity for all Wisconsin taxpayers to review the details.” http://dailyreporter.com/blog/2010/12/01/lawmakers-push-for-union-contract-transparency/

As Governor Walker has said throughout the last couple of weeks, nothing he is doing should surprise people, than why does he want to take the transparency out of the potential changes to Medicaid?
