It was only after the country started to put back into place social safety nets they had dismantle, many were able to climb out of poverty and back to the ranks of the middle class.

    Privatizing is less costly ergo less taxes ergo more money and jobs for the middle class to fill.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    You pay taxes to cover a whole host of necessary services. Privatizing them for those who can afford them is not going to get the middle class very far.

Most of the time no one cares what happens in Wisconsin, what is the agenda now?

    Actually the question is; "Did you stop beating your wife everyday." If you answer Yes, that means you still beat your wife. If you answer No, that means you've verified yourself as a wife beater.

    All I'm saying is hey, if were going to get into a debt debate, how about we get into the one that effects all of us as a whole? Not just one that only effects his state. Kind of makes you look stupid, as most here know this is just an attempt to go after him as he might be a possible candidate for presidency.

    This is the champion of fiscal conservatism and responsible governance? Oh My. Defaulting on a payment, costing the taxpayers' kids more in the future. This is my complete lack of surprise.
    Maybe if he just cut taxes some more?
    So Walker, since taking office in 2011, has left $2 billion in tax dollars in the pockets of residents of Wisconsin and will potentially incur an additional $1.1 million in interest on debt incurred by his Democrat predecessors, and you want to criticize him? And you have to love a Democrat Senator talking about "kicking the can down the road" - Democrats are Olympic quality athletes in the sport of kicking the can.

    Liberal spendthrifts and teat suckers are so entertaining.

    Really? I don't think USPS agrees with you.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
