It took Scott Walker only a few weeks to push the Capitol into political chaos. The newly elected Republican governor of Wisconsin has set his sights on forcing public workers to pay more for benefits as he looks to balance the state's budget - savings he needs to help cover the cost of tax cuts he demanded the day he took office.

Recent reports rank Milwaukee Public School (MPS) students in the worst five cities of the country in reading. A focus on literacy is imperative. Union teachers are only interested in lining their pockets.

Wisconsin has its own educational issues. The reading scores are among the worst in the nation.

Governor Scott Walker can take actions to improve the educational system. Walker has proposed expanding the current voucher program state wide. The current educational system is not producing results and competition is needed to improve results.

Our future depends on a well educated work force. Our public schools are not giving students the skills they need to succeed.

Governor Scott Walker needs to publicly nail the cowardly run away democrat politicians for what they are.

It's called Derelicition of Duty and willful Abandonment of Office.

All legislative seats of those who left the state should be be declared/deemed vacant and special elections scheduled to fill the vacated seats.

Change the locks/keys on their office doors and pack up/empty their offices putting everything in storage lockers. Fire their entire staff, void their parking passes and badges.

If any democrat took any state owned property across states lines when they ran to hide such as laptops, phones, ect, across they should be charged with theft.

And who is paying for their transportation, lodging, meals and expenses?

The oath the derelict democrats took: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

Can anybody spelled child slave labor.

GOP State Senator Jane Cunningham Wants to Put Missouri Kids to Work.
Jane Cunningham (R – West County) believes Missouri kids need to improve their work ethic, so she’s sponsoring a bill (SB 222) that would repeal much of the state’s child labor laws.

Child slavery, child labor laws were put in place to protect children from the abuses of corporatio­ns and states. These Repukeblic­an Confederat­e Nazis will not be happy till they have a slave nation again. They are not just attacking the adults, now they want to enslave our children for their corporate masters. Parents you should read this article if you live in Missouri and have children.

Obama can organize (UNIONS), but he can not run a
country. Look what he has done with his spending, backing the unioon so he will get elected again. Ohio use to be number 1, now they
are 49 in jobs. The unions have ruined this and other states. Did you really vote to have the
unions take over this country? Then look what you
are getting...Wake up america, your going down and
liking it, who is stupid? No company can afford the "perks" they demand. The teachers who do not
teach the children should be GONE, but the unions
won't let you get rid of them. When did you decide to allow your children to be taken over by
the unions and their ability to raise them. You
are just to da&& lazy to take YOUR responsability.
Too late to advise you not to have children, you
can't even think for yourself, money and perks
will NOT make your child a good person or citizen,
you have proven that. YOU think more about things
and freebees. Your president is in with the unions and stepping in where he has no Right, just
to get in office for another 4 yrs. Your too
ignorant to see what is happening and simply don't
care. The tea party are people who can see they
and you are getting screwed. Teachers who
are after your sons and dauthers in their beds, are not the education they need. Parents who
have no idea what is going on, are throwing their
children to the dogs and don't even take the time to care. You won't be thanked for this when they
grow up, they will hate you. The unions mean more
to you than your children. Your pitiful

The teachers did not fail the children, you can't expect teachers to do everything. The fault lies on the parents. Teachers can only teach and to tell the children what to study and the rest is left up to the parents to make sure their children are studying.
This squarely falls on the shoulder of the parents.They are the ones who failed this time.

Thug union bosses and labor unions do not run the country and the tail does not wag the dog. Labor unions are hurting themselves by not helping control the state debt. Perhaps people are learning that big labor unions and political influence by them is detremental to the national economy. It is all aout money and your freedom is for sale by the Obama administration. It is why labor unions have supported Obammunism.

The Student to Teacher ratio is 14-1. That's 1/2 the national average and these teachers are spitting out kids with the Worst reading & math skills. All while receiving Top Pay & Benefits.

It's Obvious The Teachers are Failing the Students and Laughing ALL the Way to The BANK.

They are making less than their counterparts in the private sector, and often forced to pay for the classroom supplies. Do you even KNOW any teachers, or are you just spewing out of ignorance?

If education does not happen, it will be a life of slavery.
The NEA DNC & GOP are more interested in a table for lunch than education.

The Average Public School teacher in Wisconsin make $50,000 and are given Automatic Raises every Year. They Make another $24,000 in Health Care & Pension benefits.

That blows away the private sector teachers at Charter schools.

You either give a whole new meaning to left wing loon, or you are interviewing for a comedy. Child slavery? Most responsible kids would love a summer job. You seem to think that they would be transported back in time to an Edwardian sweat shop or something. Good grief get a grip.

in an unbelievable display of sheer stupidity...
AFL-CIO political director Karen Ackerman said...

"I think it's a clear message. If you take on middle-class people and try to solve the budget crises on their backs, there's a price to pay. Many thousands of people will be energized to fight back."

the middle class peole are the ones PAYING FOR THE UNION MEMBERS BENEFITS!
those "energized" to fight back are fighting to keep HAVING OTHER PEOPLE FINANCE THEIR PENSIONS AND HEALTH CARE! while THEY pay nothing!

good luck getting ANY support from the 80% of this country that is NON-UNION!
and, say bye-bye to obama for supporting such selfish idiocy!
Ugh

And Walker does not run the Country! Do you really think every union worker is a Democrat? You are sadly mistaken in that thought. At least, they weren't Democrat before this mess but now they might be.

10 years I was a steelworker, earned vested benefits, was a union steward by popular election
yet here is sit with a fraction of my pension none of the medical care and none of the dental care because the union sat on its ass while some pimple in a business suit stole the money, and they did this all across america while the union brothers working as government employees sat on their asses, the only one who still has a job is the fat prick form the international who never did a decents hours worth of work in his worthless life, you union types sat back while obama your boy stole the cost of living increase from the elderly and disabled, you sat on your highly paid asses while they shipped our treasury off to israel, you sat on your ass while the white population of south Africa is being slaughtered, now you scream like stuck pigs when it finally hits home. Walker should replace the elected officials who have abandoned their posts
see how you like a complete majority,
this is the real america you have created, the tea party people ought to kick your asses.
