[Updated Sunday, April 3, 11:01 p.m., from Saturday, April 2, 1:11 p.m.] That Walker-for-Veep talk - - what with Walker campaigning with Cruz on Sunday in Green Bay, too - - is rooted in a union-bashing bromance:
Ted Cruz Calls For National Law To Cripple Unions
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said during a radio interview Thursday that he supports national “right-to-work” legislation, a type of anti-labor law that Wisconsin passed last year in an effort to cripple the state’s unions....
He added that Wisconsin’s law restricting unions “is exactly what we need to do in Washington.”Walker, last year:
Scott Walker calls for national right-to-work law and no bargaining for federal workers
Seeking to revitalize his presidential campaign, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday fired a new shot at labor by proposing to prevent federal workers from collectively bargaining, create a national right-to-work law and eliminate the National Labor Relations Board.Here's more about Wisconsin Nice [Sic]:
[Updated from 3/29] Will one of the GOP candidates or their talk radio boosters crying crocodile tears across Scott Walker's Wisconsin over incivility in campaigns show some intellectual honesty by condemning Walker 'reforms' that assaulted voting rights by installing harsh and unnecessary photo voter ID requirements?
And that wiped out locally-determined weekend voting hours and abolished long-standing voter registration drives traditionally carried out by community-based and non-profit groups.
Along with other 'reforms' that blocked any increase in the Wisconsin minimum wage from a rock-bitt $7.25/hr. and which trimmed available, federally-funded food stamps and also mandated drug-tests to get them.
And which defunded several women's health care facilities.
And which rejected federal Medicaid funding at great cost to state taxpayers - - all of which also gives the lie to the myth of Wisconsin Nice?
