Guest Blog by Cudahy1st - We are BROKE!!!

Guest Blog, Scott Walker, Wisconsin, Jim Doyle

Governor Scott Walker said.  "We are broke in this state.  We have been broke for years.  People have ignored that for years, and it's about time somebody stood up and told the truth.  The truth is: We don't have money to offer.  We don't have finances to offer.  This is what we have to offer.”

Email, Wisconsin

Randy I am emailing you because you seem like a reasonable person who is fair and I love to read your blog even though I don’t agree with you.  I didn’t’ vote for Walker as I am a Democrat, not a liberal, but a Labor Democrat.  I am not shocked by what Walker is doing since if the watched anything he did in Milw County you could tell what he was going to do.  I have to say that those people saying they didn’t know either were not watching, didn’t care because they didn’t live in Milw County or were never Walker supports in the first place.  People keep saying that he never campaigned on this and I have two things to say to them.  You must need everything spelled out and you need to get out of your little bubble and into the real world.  I knew what we were getting.

Falsehoods Spread About Student ACT/SAT and Collective Bargaining

I am sure by now you have seen the email, tweet, facebook, blog posts on how 5 states that don’t have collective bargaining for teachers that the students didn’t score well on the ACT/SAT tests is because of no collective bargaining.  It is not only fuzzy logic it is not the truth.

More on the Collective Bargaining Privilege

Budget, Scott Walker, Union, Wisconsin

I think taking some of the power away from the public sector unions is a major part of Governor Walker’s plan, has been from the get go.  Whether it was directly stated or not doesn’t really matter since Governors do many things that they NEVER said during the campaign trail time.  It is silly to think otherwise.
