Robert Reich reminds us about Scott Walker’s priorities for Wisconsin:
Before Wisconsin’s budget went bust, Governor Walker signed $117 million in corporate tax breaks. Wisconsin’s immediate budge shortfall is $137 million. That’s his pretext for socking it to Wisconsin’s public unions.
The Republicans are doing this all across the board. Cut taxes for people who won’t invest the windfall in jobs, while also cutting jobs and benefits for everyone else. Starve the people, feed the rich. That’s all they know. And what’s the endgame? Driving back into that metaphorical ditch the president’s always talking about. What makes it worse is they’re simultaneously cutting the budgets for the SEC and the new Consumer Protection Bureau. Completely and totally irresponsible. It’s the same shit they were pulling for years and they’re doing it again.
