See the April 1 issue (not an April Fool joke):

While massive protests against one egregious Wisconsin GOP action were all over the news, they snuck even more through with almost nobody noticing, clearly proving that their motto is "screw the people".

In case you can't get the whole Spectator article: they blocked attorney access to state records of abuse or neglect in nursing homes, they shifted product liability from distributors to manufacturers, they capped punitive damages, they redefined expert witnesses, and they messed with the statute of limitations, all changes intended to give businesses more advantages over individuals.

I didn't realize that all of that had been approved. I can't say that I'm surprised though, IMO, Scott Walker (governor) is on a huge power trip & he doesn't care who he hurts during his tenure. He's on mission to rise as far as he can in the GOP party. I have a gut feeling that WI is only the beginning for him...if he has his way.
