  •  Not just anti-woman laws (8+ / 0-)

    I know that's not all of the Walker agenda, but the repeal of the Equal Pay Enforcement Act also makes discrimination a breakeven at worst in Wisconsin courts for employers who do so on the basis of age, race, creed, color, disability, marital status, national origin, ancestry, arrest record, conviction record, military service, use or nonuse of lawful products off the employer's premises during nonworking hours, or declining to attend a meeting or to participate in any communication about religious matters or political matters.

    Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.

    •  True (6+ / 0-)

      but that's hard to put in a 30 second ad.  His anti-woman stuff goes well beyond repeal of the Equal Pay Act.  He's basically prohibited, by use of massive, unnecessary regulations (like requiring 3 visits to the doctor and a post-procedure follow up when only 1 is necessary), the use of chemical abortives in this state.  

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

          is that regulations are bad for corporations (particularly those evil regulations that force corporations to be responsible for their actions), but necessary to inhibit the freedom of people.
