Petty, Spoiled, Childish, Little Brats…

So what a week it’s been here in Wisconsin watching Walker and his goons operate.  On Tuesday, March 1st, Walker gives his my way or the highway budget address which is then followed by any and every little petty thing that he and the GOP can do to try to stop the protests and force the Wisconsin 14 back to Madison where the GOP will ram the bill as is through.  Either the GOP is really spooked, which they should be as poll after poll shows that the public sides with the unions, or they really are a bunch of petty little brats who will only do things their way otherwise they’ll take their ball home.  Anyway, the details…

Full Budget Proposal

  • Major cuts to local municipalities and schools with restrictions that local governments can’t raise taxes to offset cuts
  • Massive cuts to UW System and Technical Colleges
  • End statewide recycling
  • More money for roads (and road building firms – massive campaign contributors)
  • Decrease Capitol Gains taxes
  • Forced sales of dogs to medical research [Link]
