Governor Walker has obviously started a trend that even Democratic governors like. The governor of Missouri, Democrat Jay Nixon, is now following Walker’s lead and will use money that isn’t his to pay down his states’ debt. The millions he plans to spend on himself came from criminal bankers and was intended to go to homeowners who the bankers scammed over the past several years.
So there you have it – both Republicans and Democrats have the same agenda: Screw the general public as much as we can and as fast as we can.

Under the terms of the settlement, Wisconsin is set to receive $140 million, $31.6 million of which comes directly to the state government. And Walker is planning to use $25.6 million of that money to help balance his state’s budget.
Remember that Walker is a Koch-brothers loving puppet, and already facing a recall election. This should really increase his support to that effort.
Never underestimate the difficulty of changing false beliefs [with] facts.
