WI GOP politicians' special hatred for teachers

WI right-wing robot and GOP Governor Scott Walker went out of his way to slam public employees, and especially teachers, in his signature divide-and-conquer wage-depressing and union-busting plan known as Act 10.

So his WI GOP sidekick and US House Speaker Paul Ryan

comes with his own special kick at teachers - - stripping from them in the same tax 'reform' bill which enriches corporations and millionaires the modest income tax deduction for money teachers spend out of their own pockets on school supplies.

That private, personal spending by middle-class, relatively-underpaid teachees replaces some of the money which politicians like Walker have cut deeply and intentionally from public education spending as a matter of ideological routine.

Talk about a sick, special-interest loop.
