Gov. Scott Walker unveiled major new policy initiatives Friday night in a speech in California, including decreasing taxes, boosting the school voucher program and requiring Wisconsinís schools, technical colleges and universities to meet certain benchmarks to earn state funding.

Among the proposals was one to tie funding for technical colleges and the University of Wisconsin System with how well those institutions prepare students to take available and needed jobs in Wisconsin.

The glimpse into Walkerís legislative agenda came at the end of an hourlong talk at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Foundation in Simi Valley, Calif. Walker had been in Las Vegas for a meeting of the Republican Governors Association, where he was elected vice chairman.

The speech was not covered live by Wisconsin media but was available on the Internet. Among those in attendance was one of Walkerís biggest campaign donors, Diane Hendricks of ABC Supply in Janesville.

Walkerís talk focused on what the governor described as his successful initiatives to reduce the cost of benefits for public workers, improve the quality of education, boost the economy and maintain social services. After the speech, a woman who described herself as a "fellow Wauwatosan" asked what Walker planned to do now that Republicans had regained control of both houses of the state Legislature...

4. I'll give you the benefits of the doubt here

that you're making mock of the idiots who voted him in and didn't vote him out.

But seriously, do you think any of THOSE people are on here? Do you think WE didn't do our best to not let the bastard in and to kick the bastard OUT?

Sorry, but i'm not amused and I despair for everyone in this state - including the MF IDIOTS who voted for him. The made a pact with the devil and there is a price to be paid. Unfortunately, my child pays along with everyone else.

Let's hope the MF goes to jail and his cronies with him before he can do too much more damage.

5. Walker's MO is a continual bitch slap to his "constituents".

Diane Hendricks is one of his prime $$$$ supporters.
How predictable that WI's agenda is "revealed" behind our backs--and never reported on by the WI news!
MG I can hardly wait another second for him to finally be indicted and on the road to graybar hotel!!
