Re: Obamacare

Then Mitt Romney is a Communist and a Socialist because he's the originator of the individual mandate! And all the founding fathers are Communists because they wrote a constitution which allowed "ObamaCare" to be ruled constitutional by a conservative majority supreme court! The world is e...

Re: Obamacare

Let's bring this discussion back to how the new ruling changes things in Wisconsin... I have a real problem with Walker saying that he's not going to be a leader and start working on setting up Wisconsin's health care market now that the constitutionality of the law has been settled. Instead, he's g...

Sure is annoying that people who can afford their own health insurance have to have the PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY and take care of themselves.

Re: Obamacare

I think referring to the ACA as "nationalized healthcare" is misleading. All the hospitals, clinics, etc. are still going to be run by private companies. The local Tomahawk hospital is not going to turn into a wing of the VA. People don't want that. And I agree with you from experience tha...

Oh well, it'll get struck down so at least it'll be back to business as usual next year. http://www.jsonline.com/business/health-insurers-to-rebate-104-million-to-state-consumers-...

Re: Walker

Barrett won the City of Tomahawk by Two Percent (2%) OK, so Walker got 48% of the total. Walker got a very high percentage of non-union votes. He did not get 48% of union households because if he had, then he would have won Tomahawk. We're arguing about the percentage of union households Walker won,...

tooten - I'm only going to respond to one part of your rant. Besides that, I think you need to take Gov. Walker's advice and chill out and move forward. I feel like I'm reading a right wing hate group message board instead of a community message board. My response: "In Tomahawk the vote for Wal...

Re: Walker

I think it's pretty clear what's going to happen. Walker will talk about bipartisanship (but nothing will happen) until after the November elections, when the GOP will regain control of the state senate due to redistricting. Then the assault on unions, public employees, etc. will continue. I see rig...

Wrong. Walker is THE reason Wisconsin is an absolute mess right now. Was it like this before he was Governor? No.

Re: The Psychology behind Political Differences

Psychology is generally ridiculed as quack science by other sciences and books like Mooney's do little to change that despite his perceived effort. It is simply thinly guised jabs at the Republican party, much like saying, "It's not Democrats' fault they vote the way they do, they're just to p...

13th person granted immunity in john doe investigation. "John Doe" must be a pretty big fish if they're giving that many people immunity..... who do we know that has recently put $160,000 into a legal defense fund. Just a coincidence, I'm sure. http://www.wausaudailyherald.com/article/2012...

Re: Walker

Also, from what I understand, the only way a politician can legally set up a legal defense fund is if they know they are the target of an investigation.

Oh well, at least if Walker wins the recall hopefully this will get him.
