Governor Walker responds to President Obama's innuendos

Without mentioning the Wisconsin budget debate specifically, President Barack Obama said Monday that "it does no one any good when public employees are denigrated or vilified or their rights are infringed upon."
Obama, speaking to the nation's governors, said all workers should be prepared to give up something to solve budget challenges, "and I think most public servants agree with that."


The full story is HERE.

In Response, Governor Walker's office released this Statement:
I'm sure the President knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay. And I'm sure the President knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.
Furthermore, I’m sure the President knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.
I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.

Walker - Another brave conservative? It is looking that way. Let’s hope he is as tenacious through the years.
