If Walker’s nonsense in Wisconsin leads to an interruption of care that results in the death of any Nursing Home patient, Dependent Care Handicapped Individual, person receiving Mediare/caide/BadgerCare or any other person then Scott Walker, J.B.
While the presently proposed high speed rail may one day in fifty or seventy-five years become a necessity in Florida, why build it now when it is not a necessity? Only the rich can afford to use it.
