WALKER'S RECALL TAKE: Oh, the humanity!

[img_assist|nid=58034|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=78|height=100]Gov. Scott Walker says the estimated cost to the state of running a special election to recall him -- which isn't quite as much money as Walker had at last report raised in campaign funds to fight the effort -- is way too much. "I mean," he told MSNBC, "it’s $9 million of taxpayers’ money just to run this. Think about the number of kids we could help, think of the number of seniors we could help in our state with $9 million that we didn’t have to waste on this — this frivolous recall election."

So there you have it: Give up the recall election, or seniors and kids will suffer across Wisconsin. Straight from the mouth of the man who's been busy making seniors and kids and others suffer across Wisconsin. Straight from the man who gave his corporate sponsors about 15 times more than the recall election might cost, in recurring business tax breaks that the rest of us are paying for.

No, nine million dollars to get rid of this guy would be a bargain.
