The Siren Song of Scott Walker and Mark Neumann.

Another Rasmussen Poll came out again, and it's appears voters are beginning to believe Scott Walker's government for nothing message of making Wisconsin a tax cut utopia. The fact that the Republican candidates are battling it out in the statewide press, is certainly helping them with name recognition, but we'll have to wait and see how receptive the public is with a more adult approach to problem solving.

So what will a Republican governor do to create jobs? Look for hard core social engineering and wedge issue politics. For a great run down of our GOP candidates agenda, take a look at this great Jib Jab style animation of our singing right wing candidates, Walker v Neumann, from Planned Parenthood. It's so well done and unfortunately, catchy.

According to Planned Parenthood Advocate of Wisconsin:

•Walker stated that “My wife Tonette and I are both pro-life and because we're pro-life that's how I'm going to vote.” (Wisconsin Right to Life Convention, 4/20/10)
•While in the Wisconsin Legislature, Walker sponsored bills to defund Planned Parenthood and other family planning providers and recently said “I'm proud of...trying to defund Planned Parenthood and make sure we didn't have any money, not just for abortion, but any money for anything that would relate or relates to promoting or accessing [abortion] or helping or assisting anything that in any way provides support for abortion or abortion related services.” (WRTL Convention, 4/20/10)
•During his career in the Wisconsin Legislature, Scott Walker sponsored and voted for some of the most extreme anti-women's health policies, including:
◦Allowing pharmacists to refuse to fill women's birth control prescriptions (AB
168, 2002)
◦Eliminating prevention based family planning health services for low income women (AB 831, 2002)
◦Allowing doctors to withhold medical information and refuse to provide routine prenatal tests to women (AB 360, 2002)
◦Denying women insurance coverage of birth control (AR 55, 2002)
•Walker supports District Attorney Scott Southworth's attack on teachers who comply with the Healthy Youth Act, saying Southworth "is doing a tremendous job" (WRTL Convention, 4/20/10)
•Walker said "think incredibly powerful it would be to have a governor...that said...abortion's not legal in this state." (WRTL Convention, 4/20/10)

  1. Wow! Thinking abortion is evil is one thing, and understandable, but birth control?!? What kind of lunatic logic makes someone think that the greatest medical innovation in combating overpopulation and increased drain and pollution of the resources of the earth evil??
