Breaking news: Waukesha to get righty State Senator!

Who saw this coming, Waukesha?
Madison — State Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) will likely represent Waukesha County in the state Senate after winning Tuesday's three-way Republican primary for the seat... 
Kapenga has been a major advocate for passing right-to-work legislation and repealing the state's prevailing wage law, which sets a minimum salary for construction workers on public projects.
But seriously, Waukesha - - did you know that Kapenga, an accountant and self-described fiscal conservative, is the author of a bill mandating photo ID's for Wisconsin food stamp recipients. The cost to taxpayers in the upcoming state budget would be $7.6 million, and then $2 million dollars annually, according to very recent state records and estimates.

That's some pricey fiscal conservatism, no?

It's not about fiscal conservatism it's is about oppressing the poor and minority communities. Just like national defense there is always enough money for the things they want on the right.

Agreed. This is about the Southern Strategy. GOP has done a bang up job creating the "bad guy" that is ruining it for everyone else. That is #1 Americans of color, specifically black and #2 anyone who collects any benefit no matter what for - medicaid, unemployment, medicare, social security, SSI, disability, ect.
The Democrats have never used this strategy to pit one portion of voters against another. This is a GOP strategy and it works. The fact that a large percentage of voters fall into the #2 category should ensure victory for Dems but rarely do people realize that by voting GOP they vote against their own interests and survival. Walker & the GOP Legislators have already turned WI backwards in economic health, job outlook, job growth, tax revenue, women's health, unemployment benefit denials, medicaid reductions, insurance affordability and the list goes on. These GOP clowns have wasted more money than Tommy Thompson and Doyle combined. Yet the GOP Legislators and Walker still have jobs. They sell out their constituents and still have jobs. How the heck does that happen?? Who is the dummy now WI?

I hope that I'm missing the sarcasm because you can't really be serious.

The Democrats do it every single election... War on women, taxing the rich, racism, scare the elderly, abortion rights... the list can go on and on.

Ignorance is bliss!

That was not the point. The point is WALKER says one thing but does another. THAT is the point. Walker is NOT who he pretends to be. Democrats in our state aren't on camera boasting about a divide and conquer strategy. ONLY Walker boasts about dividing people and using it for political power. That is how pathetic Walker is. Shifty, cowardly, unethical & simply evil.

You can try to spin it any way you like, but you cannot argue that Walker is good for WI or for the Nation as a whole. He is a cancer that WI will cure itself of in the next election.
