Bernie Sanders is using primary documents to expose what is happening with the Koch Brothers movement to destroy not just Wisconsin but the United States as we know it. I am all about some shared sacrifice but what kind of share?
"A Senior Citizen, a tea party activist, and the Koch Brothers are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it. The Koch Brothers take 11 of the cookies, turns to the tea partier and says, 'Watch out for that Senior Citizen. He wants a piece of your cookie.'" I know this is a variation of the Union Guy, Tea Partier, and CEO story but it again illustrates the point. Shared sacrifice is not part of the Koch's Legions message.
Our boy Paul Ryan is on board with the Koch Brothers as well as FitzWalkerProsserStand here in Wisconsin. The US Congress just voted for more Koch Relief and the Gang of 6 Shared Sacrifice means more take aways from the middle class and Seniors. Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid modifications have not yet been revealed but my concern is that until Congress is re-populated with moderates; we are temporarily stuck with these new assaults on the middle class and the lesser fortunate in our society.
As I see it----It could be worse! Sometimes we need to squeeze the lemons, make lemonade, and then sweeten to taste later. Local matters first...Continue the RECALLS and take back the Wisconsin Senate with Democratic Moderates so we can go Forward and force the Assembly to act responsibly. Then RECALL Walker! We need to seek moderates for the Assembly for the next election cycle and bounce Paul Ryan out of Congress for good. Rob Zerban is ready, willing and able! AND----WHERE THE HELL ARE THOSE JOBS? I mean real jobs that 10 years+ of the money giveaway to Corporations and the Wealthiest 2% were supposed to create with all of that reduced tax money. President Obama I might not like this latest lemonade, but; I know that with the mix you are trying to create will enable all of us to share a few more of the cookies and not just crumbs!
