Walker takes easy way out, makes federal government do all the work for him.

Nothing says freeloader or lazy more than the most recent comments by Scott Walker.

I’ve always said Republicans seek government jobs because it’s easy to freeload off taxpayers. It’s not like they’re hiding it; promising to reduce government makes their job so much easier. Heck, why work when you can rely on groups like ALEC or conservative think tanks to write the legislation for you.

Work? Not if Scott Walker can help it. Here’s the tortured logic Walker’s going to use, that by the way, runs counter to the business communities (WMC) wishes to adopt a system that works here.

Yeah, right, that’s the reason. Business interests aren't going to like Walker's victimhood when it takes away their ability to influence the exchanges.

But according to this report from WKOW:

  1. I actually am a bit relieved that Jailbait isn't designing the exchange as his deliberate incompetence has made a shambles of every state agency he has touched.
