And that is only after their Local Bridge(s) are about to fall down ...

Scott Walker signs emergency declaration for sagging I-43 bridge

by Ashley Luthern of the Journal Sentinel, -- Sept. 27, 2013

Gov. Scott Walker signed a declaration of emergency Friday for the sagging Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge, which has been closed since Wednesday, a first step to make the bridge eligible for federal money for repairs.

How does that Tea Party truism go --
"Never do for yourself, when you can get Washington DC to pay for it, and you still will get the good-governing credit for it."

Right Walker?  The Koch brothers have coached you well ...

And in related Koch-shill news, Governor Walker declares both sides -- Democrats and Republicans -- to be the hostage takers ... both to blame for the current FEDERAL Government Shutdown:

Scott Walker blames lawmakers in both parties for federal shutdown

by Patrick Marley of the Journal Sentinel, -- Oct. 2, 2013

Madison — Gov. Scott Walker blamed both Republicans and Democrats on Wednesday for shutting down the federal government and said the nation should be run more like Wisconsin.

"I think blame can go around for everybody," Walker told reporters during a news conference at the World Dairy Expo.

Ummmh, hey Scottie you mean to rely on Federal Agencies (which are now on Furlough, BTW) to fix your own local, emergency infrastructure problems -- in their spare time, for free?

You mean THAT Wisconsin [sponsored-by-Koch™] downsize the Evil Govt way?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
