Rachel Maddow on Governor Scott Walker…It’s about breaking the union and the Democrats…

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was on fire for the first half of her show last night…..

She was calling out Wisconsin  GOP Governor Scott Walker……

She started out by doing a past history on the man…..

Seems he has had run ins with unions before and he is hell bend on getting rid of them….


During the time he was the Milwaukee County executive  he cut the number of employee’s on the county payroll be 20%…..

But there was a couple problems with that….

Maddow  did not address this…but with  cutting the county debt 10%….He INCREASED the county spending by 35%……


Maddow’s example last night concerned the county’s court contract for security guards….

Seems the Wachenhut Company had the contract before Walker showed up…..

Along with his campaign for fiscal conservatism he got rid of the unionized Wachenhut guards…

They where replaced by British based company , that was non-union…..That wasn’t really a security company

..But they got the job….


That company hired for the SECURITY contract a supervisor that was a convicted felon that served jail time according to Maddow….

To  Yes…supervise guards at a COURTHOUSE…..


The clincher?

In response to a court challenge from Wackenhut and the unionized guards……

A recent court ruling  has ordered the reinstatement of the orignal Wachenhut guards and fined the Milwaukee County Government $430,000…


Folks Governor Scott Walker has admitted publicly that he doesn’t like unions…..period…


As Ms. Maddow said repeatedly last night…

The fight in Wisconsin has nothing…..NOTHING to do with money…..


Maddow went on to give this picture….

Of the ten largest donor organizations during the 2008 and 2010 national elections …Three where unions…

Those union dollars when almost exclusively to Democrats….


Maddow points out that Republicans…Starting with Walker..and soon to ne spreading out in Tennessee, Ohio and even New Jersey are after Union’s hard….

She reason’s that’s a payback and simple plan to destroy their money and their influence…..


I can see her point…


Finally Maddow went on repeatedly on this point…

Democrats need to recognized this point about union busting and get into the fight….

She points out if they don’t?


Well then shame on them…..

It will cost them…..That company was not realyy a security comapny
