Walker's bill to fill deficit this year would push debt payments into future

1. This is a typical repuke tactic.
Our former asshole repug governor, John Engler did this for years. Ran up a $4 billion deficit, tried to hide it and lied about it. Dumped it on a new Dem governor. When Granholm left office 8 years later the deficit was $1.5 billion.

3. What a liar he is!

He claims he campaigned on this shitty bill he is trying to pass into law, but "I" distinctly remember him running on this idea of not "kicking the can down the road". He's doing exactly that.

6. He rode in on a teabagger anger wave.
Same with Ron Johnson's insane win over Feingold. FEINGOLD, FFS!?!?

Thankfully the wave has crested and the momentum has shifted strongly in our direction. I think next Tuesday's election will be the true pulse check to see if I am right, but I am really optimistic. It's been ELECTRIC here for weeks now.

Yes, my soul could be crushed and my spirit broken AGAIN, but I don't think so.
