Wasting millions to advance a purely political agenda-That’s the new“fiscal conservative”Republican

Governor Walker having his signature legislation tossed out as unconstitutional is rather delicious, with conservatives pretending to care so much about the constitution. Of course this won’t be the the end of Walker’s efforts to destroy freedom. He will appeal to the Supreme Court.

In March, District Judge William M. Conley overruled recertification requirements for some public-employee unions but not all, again due to Walker treating different unions differently under the law. Conley wrote, “This is not an ordinary case in any number of respects, but it is ordinary in the sense that political favoritism is no grounds for heightened scrutiny under the Equal Protection clause” of the U.S. Constitution.

Hard to argue against equal protection and freedom of assembly and claim you are FOR freedom, but somehow Walker and his Republican cronies manage to sell this to their easily manipulated base.

Walker’s base shouldn’t fret though, as Walker is hardly done wasting millions advancing his radical agenda even when it violates freedoms protected in the US Constitution. He will waste plenty more taxpayer dollars in his pursuit before he’s shown the door.

1. It's going to take years and millions to undo the damage the Walker administration has wrought...

.... so let's start ASAP. That means getting Democrats in state Senate and Assembly seats. GOTV.

2. I hope for the sake of taxpayers a bit of financial restitution becomes part of the solution.
