President to set record for campaigning on tax dime
Local TV stations carry ads for Democratic candidates Tom Barrett and Kathleen Falk openly promising to open up the taxpayer's wallet and restore to the unions what Gov. Scott Walker has taken away.
Since Wisconsin can't afford this giveaway to unions, perhaps they will do what Jim Doyle did and empty the transportation fund to pay the unions.
All we know for sure is if Democrats win, taxpayers lose.
In President Barack Obama's case, taxpayers lose before the election, as he has already done 191 fundraisers at our expense, compared to a total high of 167 for George W. Bush and 173 for Bill Clinton.
Obama is on course to smash all records for campaigning on the tax dime.
Air Force One costs $60,000 per hour and the Air Force states as of April 2, the White House will have at its disposal three C-130s, seven air crews, 60 maintenance and 12 operational staff from New Castle Air Base in Delaware, plus four C17s, six air crews, 60 maintenance personnel and 12 operational staff from another base in Charleston, S.C.
The president and his staff are constantly fundraising and increasing his carbon footprint at our expense.
Speaking of the ecology racket, Beacon Power of Massachusetts is bankrupt. There goes another Department of Energy loan guarantee of $43 million tax dollars.
Everyone is stirred up about the General Service Office wasting a million on lush junkets to Las Vegas and the Hawaiian Islands, but it's nothing compared to what Obama does to taxpayers day in and day out.
The Obama Administration has increased the number of federal employees by 143,000 in 3 1/2 years, so we can count on ever-increasing waste, fraud and abuse of tax dollars.
Margaret Thatcher said a "problem with socialism is, soon or later you run out of other people's money."
