<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">On Wednesday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker held a press conference touting that he was going to lift a cap on enrollment in Family Care, a state program designed to keep the elderly and disabled out of nursing homes. Good for him, right?

However, it turns out that Walker not only imposed the cap in the first place, but that he was ordered by federal health officials:

Federal health officials have quietly ordered Gov. Scott Walker to lift an enrollment cap and expand state programs designed to keep elderly and disabled people out of nursing homes.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Walker made <u>no mention</u> of the order at a news conference he called Wednesday morning <u>to announce he wants to lift the cap.</u></span> He told reporters only that health officials in his administration have been talking with Family Care providers for months. Together, they have identified $80 million in efficiencies over the next two years that will enable his administration to end the enrollment cap and expand the programs to the 15 counties that currently don't offer them.

The move could open the door for thousands of people to join the programs — but it also represents a stark reversal for Walker. The Republican governor has been pushing to rein in Medicaid costs for months and imposed the cap in Family Care enrollment in the state budget.


A quick review:

In the state budget, Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans imposed a July 1 cap on enrollment in a program designed to keep the elderly and disabled out of nursing homes.
On December 13, federal health officials sent a letter (PDF) to the Walker administration ordering it to lift the cap because it was not in compliance with federal regulations.
On December 28, Scott Walker holds a press conference saying how awesome he is for lifting the enrollment cap.

<span style="color: #3333FF">Walker is getting blasted for this deception across dozens of news outlets in Wisconsin, and rightfully so. This is a real whopper, even by Walker's standards.</span> </div></div>

Yes, it appears that the political system is corrupting a good man.

I would think that a statist such as you would be pleased by this.

What's that? He doesn't wear the golden (D) so you use a second standard of judgement?

But ... I already knew that.

Yes, it appears that the political system is corrupting a good man.

Was that before or during his criminal behavior as Milwaukee county administrator? Was it before or as of his conspiracy collusion with the Koch brother radicals?

Here's a clue for you: Scott Walker: no sign of being a good man.

No, you made the first ridiculous claim, you back it up that he is a good man.

Q

Unions are the problem?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">German Auto Manufacturers' High Profits and High Pay Show Why U.S. Labor Laws Need to Be Stronger

German car manufacturers make more than twice as many cars as American manufacturers. German auto workers earn an average of $67.14 in wages and benefits, while American auto workers earn an average of $33.77. We're told that American auto workers need to accept pay cuts because they earn too much for the manufacturers to be profitable, yet German manufacturers are very profitable despite paying so much more. So, how does that work?

" In addition to high trade union density supporting the power of German autoworkers’ wages, the German constitution itself includes a second mechanism for keeping employees involved in the decisions of the firm for which they work. The Works Constitution Act provides for the creation of Works Councils in each factory. The Works Councils provide a mechanism through which a company's management must work with employees, whether they are in a union or not, on issues affecting work life, such as shop floor conditions, scheduling shifts, and other issues particular to the factory. This system, according to Mund, institutionalized “direct contact for workers’ representatives with management at various levels, from lower to middle to senior management in daily affairs. So you exercise some kind of dialogue where you don’t always wear your management pin or your union pin.”

In the United States, of course, management doesn't have to involve workers in decision-making. They can fight to get a voice on the job by joining a union, but the deck is stacked against that happening, even in states without right to work free rider laws, and in the overwhelming majority of cases, unionizing is the only chance they have to get management to the table to talk </div></div>

LOL, if Unions are the problem, why does Maryland have the best educational rating of any state, (our students have the highest scores in the country) AND the strongest teacher's union in the country?

Answer: unions are not the problem, that's just another Repiglican myth to promote their on going war on the middle class.

Got a link to Maryland being the best?

I found one site ranking them 31st, and another ranking them #9 with an asterisk ... seems they didn't want to release full records.

Exactly. That's just what these Lemmings have been brain washed to ignore.

All part of the Repiglican Propaganda brainwashing, necessary for their continued destruction of the Constitution and Democracy, and the standards of our founders.

IOW, The Shock Doctrine

The definition of Republican Policies: fascism n. a merging of the interests of big corporations and government, adjoined with a systematic curtailment of civil liberties
