After Six Years Of Red State Reforms, Gov. Walker Begging For a Federal Bailout

On President Obama:
“What I think we’ve seen increasingly is more of a political agenda, and one in which he measures success by how many people are ultimately dependent on the government. We should measure success by just the opposite, by how many people are no longer dependent on the government.”
- Gov. Scott Walker (Aug, 2013)

Good Times!

According to this report, Gov. Scott Walker will be asking for less federal assistance ...oops, I'm very sorry ...I meant to write Walker will be asking for MORE financial help from Big Government. Much more.

WKOW Excerpt:
"Interstate 94 North/South, the Zoo Interchange and Interstate 94 East/West are high profile projects in southeastern Wisconsin. We propose contingency bonding that would be linked to additional federal funding for mega projects. Wisconsin is well positioned to qualify for additional federal funding to help support mega projects," wrote Gov. Walker.

Gov. Walker suggests appealing to the federal government for $341 million in highway funds, roughly ten times more than the state receives in a normal year.

Ten. Times. More.

Keep in mind Walker is not making this request immediately after a term or two of democratic leadership in state government where he would have a political scapegoat to target for blame. No, his "concession" request comes after six years of single party ruled tax cut growth red state engineering led by Scott Walker himself.

While the MSM continues to call six years of single-party "reforms" that ultimately led to widespread shortfalls in revenue a "budget impasse," Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling did not mince words when she described Walker's request for more federal assistance exactly what it is. "Begging for a federal bailout."

We could kiss goodbye to medicaid if they block grant its funding to the states.
