Heard It Before

Scott Walker claims (again!) privatization is the answer. I will literally fall out of my chair the day a conservative actually utters an original idea (rather than merely regurgitating the same old, worn-out Republican talking-points).

This claim has been debunked (here and here) before. Even the Journal Sentinel has found, in the majority of cases, contracting work to private sources has no cost savings.

Scott Walker is also a bigger spender than those bleeding-heart liberals, Mayor Tom Barrett and Governor Jim Doyle - a fact probably unbeknownst to most local media readers. The tax levy on Milwaukee County has increased $45 million over the Walker tenure.
