On Wisconsin state workers get no raises
FYI - State workers have had no pay raises the past 2 1/2 years. As a matter of fact, Doyle implemented furlough days for state workers during their last contract that resulted in a pay decrease.
On Wis. gets $918K grant to help 325 laid-off workers
I'm sorry to hear that more Americans & fellow Wisconsinites are losing their jobs. Corporate tax breaks, start-up loan incentives, numerous tax loopholes & union or nonunion workers have nothing to do with why so many American companies relocate to other countries. Also, the fact that WI is not a right to work state has nothing to do with our companies leaving. If this was the reason, then why aren't all U.S. companies relocating to the right to work states instead of other countries? No, this is all about gaining more profit. U.S. companies can pay foreign workers so much less than American workers. Wake up American Corporations! Do you see what you're doing to our country? Is adding a million or more dollars to your CEO's already lucrative salaries really necessary? Where's your American pride?
On Court rules against CUNA retirees' sick pay
Look out state workers! Gov. Walker has already began to look over your contracts; well, your former contracts. "Hmmm, what more can be taken from them," Walker is wondering. It shouldn't surprise you since you were responsible for causing our state's budget problem. Right? I heard Walker say that, so it must be true.
On Con: Cries of voter fraud are being used to suppress democracy
Thank goodness Wisconsin's new voter ID law will eliminate our state's voter fraud problem. Oh, that's right. We don't have a voter fraud problem. Never did. Well, thank goodness Wisconsin has a surplus of tax money to pay the $7 or $8 million it will take to implement our new voter ID law. Oh, that's right. We don't have a surplus of tax money to spend. Our state is broke. Well, thank goodness Wisconsin has state workers, middle class families and the poor and needy so that Gov. Walker and our state's GOP senators and representatives can "find" this extra money they need to pay for things that aren't broke.
On Disdain for compromise hurts debt talks
Congress, vote YES for a "no strings attached" debt ceiling increase. Then, stay in Washington and do your job to create a bipartisan budget. You don't need to worry about any upcoming elections since your homestates and the big GOP TEA party financiers are taking care of that for you. Just look at our great state of WI with its new voter ID law, political redistricting and elimination of our public workers unions - all intended to help the GOP and TEA party candidates in 2012.
On Union leader: No concessions yet from Janesville teachers
Rep. Knilans states it would be irresponsible to ignore his measure, but I dissagree. Rep. Knilans was irresponsible with his "yes" vote on the budget-repair bill. How can he continue to claim that his "yes" vote was "for the children" of our state, when it clearly wasn't?
On Farming’s strength lifts related industries
Now, are the farmers spending their federal subsidy payments to buy their new combines? You should check out how much our area farmers receive from our tax dollars with federal farm subsidies. So, are the farmers buying the new equipment or are we, the taxpayers, actually buying them?
On Knilans says he wants to save teachers’ jobs; Parr says he’s skeptical of plan
If Rep. Knilans truly wanted to help, he never should have voted "YES" for the budget repair bill in the first place.
On Wis. voter ID proposal headed for key vote
I find it interesting that Gov. Walker and his fellow Republicans have such an urgency to pass this voter id bill which is expected to cost the state at least $5.7 million. I thought our state was broke.
On Voter ID for recall elections! Insurance for REPUBLICANS?!
Patriot, why are Republicans so afraid of voters?
