What a complete waste of the Wisconsin taxpayers money! This is the problem with the entire system......so much waste and politics! He was voted in and because some people dont like him they are willing to throw away money that is really needed in the state right now. Sad.

The unions seem to really be angry at Walker.....why is that? The union bosses are filthy rich and power grabbing! Really hope the Wisconsin people keep Walker and let him get their budget under control....someone needs to do it!

The Union's action to nullify the votes of Wisconsin voters shows who really owns our government and...it ain't the lowly taxpayer.

The Unions are giving all the money? What unions? I do know that Walker has gotten a ton of money from out of state donors. Eh, it is what it is.

Walker dared to stand up to the unions bleeding our states dry. Gutsy, but in the end government is more beholding to unions then the average citizen.

Walker is the gutsiest politician I have seen in 30 years. They ought to create a national holiday in his honor. Unions are a small special interest group that should never be allowed to hold a state or our country hostage.

Billionaire Koch money rolls into Wisconsin to support Walker. Mitt Romney spent like 14x what Santorum spend on advertising in Mississippi and Alabama and he still came in 3rd!

elmore1 - Unions are a small special interest group that should never be allowed to hold a state or our country hostage. ---------- And yet that small group has you corporate lackey's shaking in your boots. Why else would you spend millions to destroy them?
