Scott Walker cements his status as a visionary

by

…if by visionary, you mean a bigot.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker followed through Monday on his promised veto of a measure aimed at extending domestic partner benefits to county employees.

But why Scott?

He said it made no financial sense to even study the benefit’s cost at a time of such difficult finances for the county.

So, let me get this straight. A time of financial difficulty is reason enough to deprive individuals of equal rights? That logic is ironclad.

It is amazing the arguments people are coming up with to try to justify their bigoted views toward same-sex couples, but this one is on a whole new level. This makes it look like Walker may actually be opposed to civil unions as well. I guess that wouldn’t be especially surprising, but it would be especially indefensible.

A leader that will help us “Believe in Wisconsin Again” indeed.

    To increase the foolishness, the numbers that Walker quotes is wildly inaccurate. The City of Milwaukee has had the same benefit for seven years, and it only costs them about $200K. Walker is claiming it will cost the county $4M. He is not very good at telling the truth, being socially responsible, or fiscally responsible.

    Contemprary estimates puts number of illegals working in public sector at half a MILLION. WHY WON’T YOU DEFEND AMERICA, SCONZ? This is not about sodomites this is a QUESTION (to you) of not subsidizing border invasions.

    Its unfortunate the county executive is making decisions on the basis of his run for governor.
