On Tea party group says IRS asked about Walker recall
"there are so many govt welfare programs"-If ignorance is bliss donnaw, you must be ecstatic. Obviously you are not aware that our government gives more money to Corporations in the form of corporate welfare than is provided to families living in poverty. Big Oil is on the gravy train. Where's your outrage.
On Committee to consider double dipping changes
billnewbie, you are a laugh. Please reference a comment you have made in the past year that did not ridicule another person AND actually contained a statement which pertained to the topic being discussed. Good luck :)-Honestly, I'm just amazed that wislady didn't mention Obama in her response. That's got to be a first!!!-I should think that double dipping would include collecting a paycheck for presiding as Governor of Wisconsin while also getting paid to travel around the U.S. giving speeches, right Governor Walker?
On Janesville in storage war over old Menards building
I think Menards and the city of Janesville need to consult with Governor Walker on this issue. Walker believes that local governments are overwhelmed and should rely on State government to do whats best for the local economy and regional environment.
On Milton school staff morale at ‘all-time low’ over plan, teachers say
"Be appreciative you have a job these days."-HandBookHarry - the definitive purveyor of useless advice. I think ALEC, Walker, the Republican Legislator's should be more appreciative of the job Teachers perform. If the low information types like yourself, who are so critical of teachers, think teaching is such a great job, try becoming one. Millions of thriving and gifted individuals often attribute their success to a former public school teacher - not million dollar earning athletes, CEO's or Republican lackeys.
Oh please wislady, enlighten us all with YOUR opinion of what Walker meant when he used the phrase "divide and conquer" in his conversation with Ms. Hendricks. Walkers education plan seems to only include pay cuts. How will that improve our child's education?-The righties always reference IL when they compare us to other states. MN has a Governor whose a Democrat plus a majority of Democrats in the Assembly and Senate and they are adding jobs, increasing revenue and using both policy and increased funding to enhance an existing highly-rated educational system. Whether you measure our states economy, educational system, or government effectiveness, Walker is a failure.
On Wisconsin budget committee to consider DNA expansion
Republicans believe a background check on gun sales is overly intrusive but collecting DNA from anyone arrested (not convicted) for a felony or convicted of any crime in NOT intrusive? Just ANOTHER example of government expansion and intrusion from Republicans and Walker.
"The point is that conservative groups were singled out, while liberal groups were not."-SuperDave must have forgotten about the excessive IRS scrutiny and questions of tax exempt status concerning the NAACP and Greenpeace when Bush was President. I don't remember the GOP calling for an investigation or demanding resignations from top IRS officials in 2004. In fact, more than just questions were asked, the IRS audited the NAACP. Back then the GOP claimed the IRS was just doing it's job. Now that the shoe is on the other foot suddenly the GOP cries foul. I heard the other day that Obama is suffering from a hangnail. Now, Republicans will be ordering a special inquiry into when Obama first learned of the hangnail, who else knows about the hangnail and when did they learn of its existence and why the Republicans were not informed of the hangnail! -I agree with those who advocate ALL political and special interests groups lose their tax exempt status.
On Benghazi redacted
donnaw, you must agree that Republicans are well known for orchestrating cover-ups on a grand scale. From Nixon's Watergate to Reagan's under the table sales of guns & weapons to Iran to Bush's secret eavesdropping and torture of prisoners, just to name a few. If the events of Benghazi had occurred under a Republican administration, we would still be wondering what happened. The fact is, there was no cover-up but with the deficit and jobless rate shrinking, Republicans don't have much else to whine about. To Republicans, attempts to shame Democrats is more important than mourning the loss of life and using the lessons leaned from Benghazi to improve U.S. embassy security.
