There have been repeated letters about how good Scott Walker has been for the state.
Recently, I came across an article from the Palm Beach Post with an interview of oil billionaire David Koch. In it, Koch admitted that he backed Scott Walker’s union-busting agenda in this state: “We’ve spent a lot of money in Wisconsin. We’re going to spend a lot more.”
In the article, Koch seems to equate unions with the Bolsheviks. Never heard of them? Maybe because they were the group that led the Russian Revolution in 1917 and became the Communist Party that took over Russia. I find this amusing since it is Koch who is trying to take over Wisconsin.
Since Walker’s budget took effect last summer Wisconsin has lost over 35,000 jobs. That is six straight months of job losses for this state. And the Philadelphia Federal Reserve lists Wisconsin as one of six states projected to continue to lose jobs.
If everyone is so supportive as his ads imply, why is Walker going coast to coast begging for money to help him fight the recall? No money in Wisconsin? Where’s all this big union money the Republicans keep talking about? I see all these pro-Walker ads on TV, but few ads talking about how six of Walker’s top aides and closest political cronies are under federal investigation or indictment for a range of criminal activities, including embezzling donations meant for the widows and orphans of war veterans and illegal political campaigning by government employees.
