Why? Because our timid Dems refused to pull the trigger on the BIG issue, probably because they are part of the problem!!!
By Jack E. Lohman
They talked about the little fires, but not the big one: campaign money coming in from all sides. Even theirs.
Trust me, the money works. It buys legislation that benefits corporations and the wealthy, or they wouldn’t be giving their money. Money from special interests from all parts of the U.S..
Why should they be telling Wisconsin politicians what to do? Because they make money on it, and YOU, who are not special enough, pay it.
Our politicians should know better, but the temptation is too great. They want to be re-elected and don’t see money coming from the public. That’s the problem.
So we have roads to nowhere, because the road industry paid Governor Scott Walker $166,000 and gobs more to mostly Republicans. They did the same for Gov. Jim Doyle. And money from Payday Loan Sharks to protect their scam, which worked as planned. And you name it… from everywhere, all to control the politicians so they represent them instead of the taxpayers. Don’t miss this emotional rant from Dylan Ratigan.
Did the Dems learn their lesson? It’s doubtful. And unless they really are willing to tackle the corruption I’d recommend they not waste state money on a Walker recall.
Public funding of campaigns, incidentally, would cost less that $10 per taxpayer per year… and would save hundreds of times more in special interest giveaways. And when they balanced the budget they’d not do it on the backs of the residents.
