Gov. Scott Walker talks about paying down our debt and about our large surplus this year, but how did he do it? By deep cuts to education, local governments and other programs. Also, public workers must pay more for health insurance and pension benefits. He also effectively ended collective bargaining rights.
Pretty much looks like he's determined to get middle-class workers' pay down to a level where they will pay less income taxes. Retired people's income won't be affected. Well, that's one way to encourage divisions among those other than the very rich.
He's not talking about prosecuting the mortgage fraud perpetrated by big banks in Wisconsin, or the overcrowding problems at St. John's homeless shelter, or the thousand homeless students in Green Bay public schools. I wonder if cuts in benefits and pay affected those people.
He claims he has our best interest at heart but there seems to be more and more people out in the cold. He gave 30 percent of our public education money to charter schools.
