Welcome to Walker World: Crushing Wisconsin’s regulations, unions, workers, you name it. He’s a one man democracy wrecking crew. The good news is, he isn’t crushing their spirit, if live streaming of the rotunda and the many protests around the nation are any indication.
However, he’s doing his best to achieve the worst.
Walker’s assault on public employees is only one part of a larger political program that aims to give corporations free reign in the state while dismantling the healthcare programs, environmental regulations, and good government laws that protect Wisconsin’s middle and working class. These lesser known proposals in the 144-page bill reveal how radical Walker’s plan actually is:
1. ELIMINATING MEDICAID
2. POWER PLANT PRIVATIZATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL NEGLECT
3. DANGEROUS DRINKING WATER
4. DESTROYING WETLANDS
5. FISCAL IRRESPONSIBILITY
6. DISENFRANCHISING VOTERS
7. CUTTING JOBS, LOSING THE FUTURE
8. STIFLING INNOVATION
9. “NAKED POWER GRAB”
10. POLITICIZING STATE AGENCIES
