A news item (Wisconsin State Journal, February 11, 2011) includes Gov. Scott Walker's oft-repeated claim that he needed to force stripping collective bargaining for public employees as part of his "budget repair" bill in Walker's declared 'fiscal emergency.'
It was a Walker lie then, and a lie now that even Walker let slip in the video below, it bears repeating. Walker's lie is about taking rights away for political, cynical partisan purposes.
And the same applies to soon-to-be-recalled State Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, Walker's tool.
