Follow the money!

Remember my last blog where I said to “follow the money my friends”?
Well, lets take a very quick look today;
The 14 Wisconsin Democratic senators who fled to Illinois share more than just political sympathy with the public employees and unions. This is the budget-repair bill addressed by Gov. Scott Walker in Wisconsin.
The Senate Democrats count on those in the public sector as a key funding source for their campaigns.
In fact, one out of every five dollars raised by those Democratic senators in the past two election cycles came from public employees, such as teachers and firefighters, and their unions. You are simply a fool if you think that the unions have not bought those Senators! To be able to elect and control the people who will be giving you raises and benefits is a GREAT deal for the unions but horrendous for the tax payer!
"It's very simple," said Richard Abelson, executive director of District Council 48 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. "We have interests and because of that we attempt to support candidates who support our interests. It's pretty hard to find Republicans who support our interests these days."

Public unions are big money.
 Of the top 20 biggest givers in federal-level politics over the past 20 years, 10 are unions; just four are corporations. The three biggest public unions gave $171.5 million for the 2010 elections alone, according to The Wall Street Journal. That's big money and the main stream media is incorrect when it portrays the corporations as evil and controlling the political agenda. Look at the money honey, follow the money!

Lets take a look at the takers of the unions bribe money. Who are or what is the type of Senator that leaves the State and refuses to do their job?
Well, here is one;
We found out that Wisconsin State Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) had been busted in a prostitution sting:
State Rep. Gordon Hintz was issued a municipal citation in Appleton earlier this month for violating a city sexual misconduct ordinance.
Last Friday.... after the assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: "You are F***king dead!"

What a guy huh? Kinda reflects the attitude of those unions that put him in office!

Speaking of fools and elected office, Obama is defending and supporting those who are breaking the law in WI, (he really likes that part) and interfering in what is a State issue, not a federal issue. Mr. Obama has enough to worry about with his own budget and millions of his own federal workers do not have the same bargaining rights that he is condemning Scott Walker attempt to modify. All while unions bus in protesters from as far away as California!

Gov. Scott Walker on Monday afternoon responded to comments President Barack Obama made earlier in the day about the protests in Madison:

"I'm sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I'm sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts. (so, think Obama is stepping outside the sand box he should be in, and speaking with forked tongue?)
"Furthermore, I'm sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin. (you mean that not all of the workers are supporting the sick out? How can that be? That is not on the news??? Let’s see, 300,000 vs say 30,000? And that would include all the bussed in protestors…Will we be ruled by the vocal minority or by the responsible and working majority?)
"I'm sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn't acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another." (ha ha, right…Obama would never do any such thing)

Ok, since you want some news about Obama;

GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah) reportedly directed a few choice words on President Obama's healthcare law.
Asked whether he thought the nation's healthcare system needs serious reforms. He acknowledged that states have different problems when it comes to healthcare, but called the federal law Democrats passed last year a "dumb-ass program" that will not solve them.
"Every state has different demographics, every state has different problems," Hatch said, according to a Utah Statesman report. "It's good to allow them to work out their own problems rather than a one-size-fits-all federal government, dumb-ass program. It really is an awful piece of crap."

Don’t you just love it when a politician says up front and directly what is on his mind and how he or she feels.
MA thinks it GREAT!
