JUST SAY NO -- Walker Edition

Walker has turned down $1.3 billion in federal funding. Yeah, we're broke 

You can slice and dice this all you want and split hairs until the cows come home, especially you ideologues who seem to feel that wins an argument.

But the real question is, can we afford this guy?

We could have done something with that money and please, don't dish the crap that we shouldn't be accepting the money in the first place.

Trust me, all of Walker's heroes -- Perry, Barbour, Christie, etc are taking the money. Texas would be dead without federal money. Walker was just unfortunate enough to buy into his own ideology.

Just think how much further ahead Walker would have been on his 250,000 jobs program. But unless it runs on rubber, his buddies on right wing talk radio have been rabidly against it, so this is the corner Walker has been painted into.


  1. You don't say what the money was for. What was it for and why does he keep doing this? Is the goal to make the state broke? Or were there strings attached?

  2. Oh, maybe you mean total federal funding turned down since right after the election? I thought for a minute you meant he just turned down that money and I thought, not again!

    Great blog, by the way. Thanks for all the info.
