    You think of working people like these in same you think of the mythological welfare mamas.

    Stephen Fincher - 8th district TN - received $3.2 million in farm subsidies over the past decade. Now, he's getting $174,000 + tax-payer funded healthcare + $320,000 a year in farm subsidies. That means he's going to get $494,000 a year in farm subsidies.

    Again, Walker gets paid $137,500 / year to be governor. I don't see him sacrificing anything. I don't see Fincher sacrificing anything.

    Teachers, cops, and fire fighters have to sacrifice so the wealthy welfare queens (like all the companies that get no-bid contracts from the Pentagon, for example) can continue to suckle the government teat. The welfare queens on Central Park West (and in the House of Representatives) cost you and I a lot more tax dollars than the ones in the projects. I'm just tired of people thinking the poor are their enemy - especially the working poor - when there's someone making millions off our tax dollars just because they can shake the right hand. If we can take care of those welfare queens first, I'll join your crusade against the few poor people who exploit the system.
    You make no sense. How about you compare the governors salary to school admistration salary like the school superintendents

    Local school superintendents average $130,000 - JSOnline

    Public school districts in southeastern Wisconsin reported paying their top leaders an average salary of nearly $130,000 in the 2009-'10 school year

    You are wrong

    Those increases in benefit contributions would raise $30 million by July and $300 million over the next two years.

    Just two examples of wealthy people suckling the government teat.

    Anyone at Halliburton is another prime example of wealthy teat-sucklers.

    Anyone who works on Wall St. post 2007 - rich government teat-sucklers.

    All of 'em.

    No...no you're right. The people who were already living in the projects caused the economy to collapse.

    Talk about STUPID.
    So lets tell congress to stop all government subsidies

    C'mon. Don't act so blind.

    IT'S UTTER FACT. It's not a lie at all.
    That is deception. One is income one is capital gains not the same situation

    And Walker's bill does nothing to address Superintendent salaries. It only makes teachers pay more of their healthcare and pension costs. Superintendents will not be touched. Therefore your point is moot.

    It only proves that people who make less are being made to sacrifice, while those who make more aren't asked to sacrifice a thing.

    Thank you for continually making my points for me.

    What a load of manure. Any money going in your pocket is income. The rich have found a way to cheat. Its pure and simple. All money going into anybodys pocket should be taxed as income.
