“Who better than me, who’s already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with Medicaid and Medicare?”
– Tommy Thompson, Wisconsin candidate for the U.S. Senate, who was referring to welfare reform during his term as governor.
Special memo to all Republicans: please pull your head out of your ass before speaking in public. You keep spitting out shit that you can’t take back.
“Fellow Conservative, With only a short time before the June 5th recall election, the mudslinging from the Left has begun. Big-government union bosses and Washington insider special interests have started pouring money into Wisconsin in an attempt to push me out of office and reclaim their stranglehold on Wisconsin’s tax dollars. A win on June 5th will be a referendum on those trying to stifle the voice of the people and hand power back to the big-government public union bosses that want nothing more than complete control of a state’s budget. We must defeat this baseless recall. We must defeat the liberal left that is trying to silence the majority of hard working taxpayers and further raid their wallets to keep their bloated bureaucracies afloat.”
– Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in an email to supporters asking help to stop recall efforts.
