Well, some of you may have heard the battle going on in Wisconsin right now with Governor Scott Walker and his budget bill. I just want to post my feelings on it, but what I DON'T want to do, is make my blog political. Hahaha. I have a very strong opinion, and if you get me started on politics, it may never end! If you don't know what is going on with this whole drama fest in our lovely state, please check out the link I have provided below.
"Dear Governor Walker, I have a low paying job from which I have to pay 25% of my insurance & 100% of my retirement fund. But I'm one of the lucky ones, I have a job. With today's economy, I can not afford higher taxes to pay the 12% insurance & 6% retirement for state workers. You are doing what is necessary, fair, and what you promised to do all along. Thank you!!!
I will work at my office today, where I have no pension, no insurance, no paid sick days, no paid personal days, and will not get PAID to leave work to protest. I will earn money and pay my taxes, so other people can abuse the system today."
I, unlike a lot of people I know, am very excited for this bill to pass! And I am proud of Scott Walker for making the cuts! They had to come from somewhere, and if that means state employees paying for THEIR OWN INSURANCE AND PENSIONS, great! I have to pay for my own things, so they need to shut it, and pay for their own crap too!!! We as taxpayers already have to pay for their salaries, so why can't they learn to pay for their insurance and pensions?! And for teachers to pull out of school and protest?! And to brainwash students into it too?! Seriously, it all needs to stop!
Uhg... Ok, I digress before I get myself on a rampage. Hahaha!!
