  •  Walker is clearly worried (2+ / 0-)

    So worried, in fact, that he's going to pretend to be a moderate for the next 2 years.  He's already said "no" to signing Right to Work (for less), "no" to eliminating Same Day Voter Registration, and "no" to anything, as he says it, "that will incite the people and create the level of protest we have experienced".  

    Is he going to keep his word? We'll see.  I doubt it because he's got Republican control of everything.

    We're going to make Walkers live up to his ONLY campaign promise in 2010 (no, he didn't campaign on anything else which is why people are so surprised about what he did) - to create 250,000 jobs in his "first term".  2 years in and he's got about 30,000.

    And he won't get anywhere close to half his promise because he stripped away 18% of the take home pay of every public worker in Wisconsin to pay for their pension and health insurance despite public employees bargaining to keep those intact by giving up decent wage increases for the past nearly 30 years.  You can't take that amount of money out of the hands of tens of thousands of people and not fully expect a serious impact on the economy and, therefore jobs.

    We're ready.  Bring it on.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
