    Dear Gov. Walker,
    Thank you for showing all of us your courage to take on something that is necessary for your people of WI. People say they want change and yet they protest when any change will affect them.

    Hang in there. Many of us Americans are praying for your efforts to be recognized.

    Thank you.

    I’M SURE THAT THESE STATE EMPLOYEES THAT WALKED OFF THEIR JOBS WILL HAVE NO PROBLEM TAKING A PEE TEST AS ANY SKILLED TRADES MAN HAS TO TAKE WHEN WALKING OFF A JOB. THESE PEOPLE ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS, REMIND THEM. I HOPE SOMEBODY READS THIS

    The reality of the budget requires fundamental changes. The benefits given to the public sector workers were out of sync with the private sector. Adjustments needed to be made. The public sector unions were also growing powerful enough to provide a significant financial impact to state and local politics, taking away the voice of the people. Again, adjustments needed to be made. The people of Wisconsin voted and things are changing. Jobs will be attracted by lower tax rates for business, and deficit spending will be reduced so that the state government will run responsibly. Scott Walker is taking a courageous stand against a significant head wind created by the public unions calling on resources and organization inside and outside the state. Spending significant amounts of union money to organize, bus, create signage and encourage the rage that was shown. If anything, it hardened the resolve of the people who voted for the change. The recalls that are underway and the kneecap tactics the unions are using against local businesses threatening boycotts will be unsuccessful.

    Wow. The two comments from Marion and Don indicate they are not aware of what the WCIJ does or the purpose of this article. That did not stop them from posting their political opinions though.
    I have signed similar email forms. Sometimes it is easier to sign a pre-written form than to write your own. Mostly, when I do this I am just agreeing with the site and signing on to show support. When I’m really pissed, as I have been recently, I compose my own emails to my representatives or whomever I want my voice heard.
    The pre-written forma aren’t as interesting as is their origin. It appears the Koch Industries organized at least some. Which is their right. But is does show who is (trying) to pull Walker’s strings.

    Sandy,

    So everybody who agrees with Governor Walker is being manipulated by Koch Industries?

    The WCIJ is funded by George Soros. What if I said you were being manipulated by Soros?

    Americans have different opinions. Don’t insult people by insinuating that they’re being brainwashed by a specific special interest.
