We must keep Walker away from the White House!
Scott Walker doesn't just want to wage war on unions, he wants to destroy the agency in charge of protecting workers' rights.
According to a plan released by Walker's presidential campaign, the Wisconsin governor wants to create a national right-to-work law and eliminate the National Labor Relations Board.
As if that wasn't bad enough, Walker said that if he gets elected, he would reverse President Obama's recent executive order that requires federal contractors to provide paid sick leave. And, he pledged to end the policy that allows some low-level salary workers to receive overtime pay.
Most of us view these proposals as an out-right assault on workers' rights, but Scott Walker says they're only part of his effort to “take on the big-government union bosses in Washington.”
These proposals are even more extreme than the measures that Walker implemented in his home state of Wisconsin, where the middle class has been shrinking faster than any other state in our nation.
Just in case you didn't already have a reason, these policies are exactly why we must keep Scott Walker far away from the White House.

This is serious... how do these facist dumbos qualify as candidates?
Did you know that Walker support FDR's view of public unions? FDR felt that unions and private industry could have "good faith" talks, and work out an agreement that balance the needs of the firm with the needs of the workers .... But he was opposed to Public Unions since the unions could elect both the union representative and the public representative, and that this would no be good for the public nor the nation.
Scott Walker QUIT!!!!!!

I just got an email saying Scott Walker pulled out of the race.......?
Thom he dropped out! Now who are the Koch Brothers going to buy?
Ha ha you said pulled out!
Problem Solved, what a difference a day makes. One more Ultra Right Wing Bug crushed !
I guess no other Billionaire wanted to buy Walker after the Koch Bros. said they were thru with him and some other billionaire could buy him. It looks like he was such a sleazy person no one else wanted their name anywhere near him, now if only the other 15 would follow his advice and drop out, but that would take away from the comedy this group is.

Scott Walker must have gotten the word that the big money was not going to go to him so he dropped out of the race. Still, what the 1860 US Army officers guide said about enlisted men applies to Scott Walker, "Enlisted men are basically stupid but extremely cunning and sly and bear considerable watching". He's a poisonous snake in the grass and this is probably not the last time we see Scott Walker. Maybe the oligarchs thought that backing someone that goes around openly bragging about bringing down wages was not going to win them The White House.
RJ Schundler -- It certain makes it easy for you to keep repeating the same thing. It does give us the opportunity to give many replies. Does it come as a surprise to you that an employer (in this case FDR) does not want his employees to form a union? It has been demostrated (there are many examples) that when public unions are eliminated it is both destructive to the public and the nation.
I just heard that Scott Walker dropped out. It must have been Thom.
