Scott Walker Admits Union-Busting Provision ‘Doesn’t Save Any’ Money For The State Of Wisconsin
Source: Think Progress

KUCINICH: Let me ask you about some of the specific provisions in your proposals to strip collective bargaining rights. First, your proposal would require unions to hold annual votes to continue representing their own members. Can you please explain to me and members of this committee how much money this provision saves for your state budget?

WALKER: That and a number of other provisions we put in because if you’re going to ask, if you’re going to put in place a change like that, we wanted to make sure we protected the workers of our state, so they got value out of that. <...>

KUCINICH: Would you answer the question? How much money does it save, Governor?

WALKER: It doesn’t save any.

2. Sooooooo...
How about we go back and listen to some Scott Focker sound bites from February when he used that excuse to ram his agenda down the state's throat?

I'll bet he'll look and sound extra stupid.

3. next up- Scott Walker admits he created the whole 'crisis' by giving tax cuts
I have a funny feeling that guy was never even elected.

Wisconsin needs to go back through their entire election results since Kathy Nickolaus was put in place.

5. Which Dem besides Kucinich would have gotten him to admit this?
So maybe he can do more than just grandstanding, contrary to what the pro-Blue Dog, pro-Corporate Kucinich bashers like to smear him with.
