Paul Martin’s letter, “Walker sells out middle class,” and Joyce Luedke’s letter, “Governor Walker serves the rich,” both disparaged Gov. Scott Walker’s ability to raise and spend $25.3 million dollars to defend his record in the upcoming recall election. They railed about him going out of state to get this money.
Now wait a minute. Let me get this straight. Walker went to business people in another state and talked them into giving him money they would have probably spent in their own state, so that he could bring it back to Wisconsin and inject it into the Wisconsin economy. So, tell me again, Paul and Joyce; why is this bad?
He has also gone to these rich business owners and informed them the good citizens of Wisconsin would really like to work for them, but don’t want to move to Texas or Florida or Kansas. So he suggested that if they would move or expand their companies to Wisconsin, he would give them a corporate tax break to help cover the cost of relocation/expansion, and in turn, provide more jobs for Wisconsinites and higher tax revenues for the state. So, tell me again, Paul and Joyce, why is this bad?
We all know this recall is about Democrats trying to protect their major donors, the public unions. They don’t care how much taxpayer money is spent on this foolishness, or where the money comes from. Come to think about it, 2,133,167 Wisconsinites voted in the November 2010 governor’s race.
What does that say about 900,000 signatures? More wasted money pinned on hopes that those who support Walker will not bother to vote on June 5.
The Walker Administration was able to find and eliminate nearly 1,600 felons who were allowed to receive food stamps during the previous Democrat controlled governorship. Do you think for a second that Mayor Barrett would have bothered to eliminate that? Neither do I.
I would hope you all would go to the polls on June 5 and vote for Gov. Walker. Our vote shouldn’t be about whether or not we agree with everything Governor Walker has done or will do. We need to tell the liberals and unions of this state we refuse to let our hard earned tax money be squandered away on foolish recalls. If we don’t like where he has taken our state at the end of his full term, then we will look for someone else. That’s the way it is supposed to work.
