Scott Walker Will Push Wisconsin State Legislature To Modify Voter ID Requirements
In a press release sent Tuesday, Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate called Walker's efforts "an unconstitutional attack" that would disproportionately impact racial minorities, veterans, students and seniors.
"Now, Scott Walker and Republicans in the legislature want to change the rules of the game with a special legislative session," Tate wrote. "That's because, without real support for his failed economic policies or his radical social agenda, Scott Walker knows that the only way he can win is by keeping more people at home on Election Day."

The next legislative session, Mike Tate will get all the other kids to skip the state and hide out in Toronto with Rob Ford as a protest. They played this schoolyard game before, remember?

F*ck him and his "constitutionality" BS. He'll be sipping Daiquiris poolside with another wacko while his Komrades read their Red Books eating Caviar.

I'm never far from wrong. And I'm never far from right.

Really think your posts "intimidate" me?

Every post you've written under the new yawk screen name has an agenda that it makes you more of a fool then what you already are, but also laughable.

More proof of your transparent lies and willful ignorance, a typical demorat:
The Bush economy:
"Democrats like to claim the 1990s were a golden age while the Bush years have been disastrous. But as the nearby chart shows, Mr. Bush inherited a recession. The dot-com bubble had burst in 2000, and the economy was sinking even before the shock of 9/11, the corporate scandals and Sarbanes-Oxley. Mr. Bush's original tax-cut proposal was designed in part as insurance against such a downturn."
"However, to win over Senate Democrats, Mr. Bush both phased in the tax rate reductions and settled for politically popular but economically feckless tax rebate checks. Those checks provided a short-term lift to consumer spending but no real boost to risk-taking or business investment, which was still recovering from the tech implosion. By late 2002, the economy was struggling again -- which is when Mr. Bush proposed his second round of tax cuts."
"This time the tax rate reductions were immediate, and they included cuts in capital gains and dividends designed to spur business incentives. As the tax cuts became law in late May 2003, the recovery began in earnest. Growth averaged nearly 4% over the next three years, the jobless rate fell from 6.3% in June 2003 to 4.4% in October 2006, and real wages began to grow despite rising food and energy prices. The 2003 tax cut was the high point of Bush economic policy."
"Nonetheless, the budget deficit did fall mid-decade, as tax revenues soared with the expansion. In fiscal 2007, the deficit hit $161 billion, or an economically trivial 1.2% of GDP. That seems like a distant memory after the bailout blowout of the last few months, but the point is that the Bush tax cuts aren't responsible for the deficits. Before the recession hit, federal tax revenues had climbed above their postwar average of 18.3% of GDP."
The WSJ
Where's the jobs, dingus?
Bush inherited a balanced budget.

You know,that thing you pretend American right whiners whack off about every night.

You had it.

What happened???

Bush decided to "give it back". He ran on "giving it back" & so you voted for it. He slashed revenues while going to war. Then he invented a second war. He & The Republicans passed a huge unfunded expansion to Medicare. In 2005, there was record unfunded earmark spending. Economy was fueled by runaway housing market that started to fadein 2006. The house of cards that Bush built collapsed into the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial meltdown & we still has=d two quagmire wars.

This is what Obama inherited.

I find that when you f*cking morons blame Obama & give your own party a free pass that you look really ridiculous & anyone with a brain knows you are dumber than sh*t.

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.
According to you. if banks could discriminate, all would have been OK.

Banks lost in court & redlining was racist.
