“Koch brothers put Walker into office " Why?

Koch owns a coal company subsidiary with facilities in Green Bay, Manitowoc, Ashland and Sheboygan; six timber plants throughout the state; and a large network of pipelines in Wisconsin. While Koch controls much of the infrastruc­ture in the state, they have laid off workers to boost profits. At a time when Koch Industries owners David and Charles Koch awarded themselves an extra $11 billion of income from the company, Koch slashed jobs at their Green Bay plant”

That's right, hurt the working middle class, so the rich get richer!
Walker giving tax cuts to big business as he asks working class to give up more.
Help me understand why you want to hurt average hard working citizens?

  • The interests of the Koch Brothers are railroads, timber and coal to name just a few. They want to protect their empires. They see unions as causing trouble for their profits and they have bought themselves a governor who thinks he is balancing the budget but is really putting the money and power in the hands of the Koch Brothers. The Tea Party people are being brought in to make it look like there is a grass roots support for this power play.

  • Nothing new at all . Enrich the rich at the espense of the poor is the conservative message. i cannot understand how ordinary people can be gulled into voting for servants of the corporate mega-rich . This union busting and power grab is reminiscent of the 1920's and 1930's

  • Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says an alternative to state employee health and pension changes is bumping 200,000 children out of Medicaid

    Liar again
    We looked at the mechanics by consulting several experts:

    Jon Peacock, research director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families
    Joan Alker, co-executive director of Georgetown University’s Center for Children and Families
    Kaiser Family Foundation, a national research organization that focuses on health care (memo)
    The Wisconsin Legislative Fiscal Bureau’s memo on Walker’s budget-repair bill
    They all agreed: The federal health care reform law that took effect in March 2010 prohibits states, until at least 2019, from changing their Medicaid eligibility requirements for children.

    In other words, states can’t take Medicaid away from kids who are receiving it.

  • Koch owns Georgia-Pacific. It is a privately owned/family owned company. Their reorganization of G-P kept is solvent and my husband employed. If they give themselves bonuses, well, it is their company. They took no public money. They took no stimulus. They know how to run a business. If they didn't, they couldn't have bought G-P for $23 billion. They paid $12 billion in cash. This is the largest privately owned company in the world. Started and owned by the Koch family. Why do you have a problem with that? Oh, you hate rich people. No, you are jealous of rich people. Well, these rich people have been good to my husband.
