Wisconsin: RINO Senator Dale Schultz Offers Compromise to Undercut Gov. Walker’s Budget Cutting Plans
Wonder why states wind up in such bad budget shape, it’s not just because of Democrats … add RINO’s to the list as well.
RINO ALERT! So called-moderate Wisconsin state Senator Dale Schultz buckles as he floats a compromise that would undermine Governor Walker’s budget. Difficult times call for difficult choices and isn’t it pathetic that RINO’s would cave. Maybe Mr. Schultz would like to go into hiding with the rest of the “fleebaggers”?
The proposal, written by Sen. Dale Schultz and first floated in the Republican caucus early last week, calls for most collective bargaining rights of public employee unions to be eliminated – per Mr. Walker’s bill – but then reinstated in 2013, said Mr. Schultzs’s chief of staff Todd Allbaugh.
“Dale is committed to find a way to preserve collective bargaining in the future,” said Mr. Allbaugh in a telephone interview.
What is wrong with Republicans? Do they not understand when they are in the driver’s seat? There was an election in 2010 that swept the GOP into power in Wisconsin, including the election of Gov. Walker. The people knew what he was running on. As stated by Hugh Hewitt, Walker knows that he may never have more power than he does right now; however, there are weak-kneed Republicans that don’t appear to have the stomach to do the right thing.
The Gateway Pundit has the Senator’s contact info so to give him a piece of your mind.

The politicians never do what the people want. They are bought and paid for by the unions. Wisconsin state Senator Dale Schultz is a union whore. He just compromised his political career.
i guess these people still don’t understand that
unions are criminal organizations but, that fits right in with the democrats. criminal is as criminal does.
Government Employees Collectively Bargain for twice
the normal salary and benefits of the people who actually
pay those comfortable salaries and benefits. How in
the world do they do it?
Clearly Walker was bought and paid for by corporations; is that any better?
Here’s a fun idea — carpetbaggers who aren’t from Wisconsin get to STFU.
So, let me get this straight: I’m being compared to wealthy northerners who took advantage of poor southerners after the civil war, when all I’ve done is make the point that wealthy corporations are using their influence to screw teachers out of collective bargain rights to pay for the $140 million in tax breaks Walker just gave to wealthy corporate donors. Great metaphor, I should just let you keep posting, I couldn’t do a better job of proving your ignorance.
P.S.: I live in Wausau, Cletus.
Schultz’s wife is a superintendent of a WI public school. There must be pressure at home to be a wimp.
When will our Republican politicians finally learn that you do not compromise with these leftie thugs? They do not give up on their principles and the center point keeps moving further and further to the left, outside the mainstream of the majority of the Wisconsin people. This is a very serious situation and time to stand up to them. Our children have lower reading test scores that they did ten years ago and Wisconsin has doubled the amount we spend per child in that same amount of time. The teachers and the unions do not put the students first, their own greed is at the top on their list. If Rinos like Mr. Schultz do not get it, it is time to replace him as well. Let’s get our house in order Wisconsin and make this a better state. Support Governor Walker and not the crowd that writes fake doctor notes, refuses to show up for work, and fails to educate the children of Wisconsin.
Stand strong with Walker. We are paying you to stand up for Wisconsin, not the unions. We are trying to take care of ourselves why should we be paying for the care of others. Help us. Stick with Walker, stand strong with his bill. The unions don’t compromise why should we!
Dale Schultz gathers union protestors around him and states his convictions clearly on MSNBC. Does he expect his base to materialise in 2012??? Who in the world votes for republicans anyway? Unions? Appearing on MSNBC… doesn’t get any clearer than that!
Hey Dela I don’t think anyone cares where you’re from. If you are drinking from the teat of WI tax payors you need to open your eyes and listen to what the MAJORITY of WI tax payors are saying. The gravey train is over. You had it good for many years. It’s now time to start to pay for some of your benefits. And Collective Bargaining does not belong in PUBLIC Unions. Read what your great leader FDR had to say about Unions in the Public sector. And the out of state union thugs don’t belong in this. Let them take care of their own state and Wisconsinites will take care of ours. Gov Walker was elected for a reason. Can your northern WI Wausau Cletus teachers brain take that info in and process it? Doyle had 8 years of runing WI. Now it’s time to clean his mess up.
To Dela. The answer to your question is yes. You see, corporations provide jobs, while unions kill jobs. Besides, the corporations don’t have to buy and pay for anybody. They just move their operations to another state, and take their jobs with them. That is what has happened to Wisconsin under Jim Doyle and the democrat party. By the way, that is also happening under Osama Obama and the democrat party. This needs to change, and Dale Schultz is part of the problem, not the solution. Do what Wisconsin taxpayers want, instead of what the union thugs want. That would be cutting spending and taxes, not compromise with the democrats who created the problem in the first place.
So, let’s clear up some misconceptions:
* “You’re a carpetbagger” – No, I’m actually opposed to the wealthy taking advantage of the middle class.
* “You’re not from Wisconsin” – Uh, yes I am.
* “You drink from the teat of Wisconsin taxpayers” – Nope, I’m a software engineer at a manufacturing company, and yes I paid for my own college education.
* “Corporations don’t have to buy and pay for anybody” – It’s called “Starve the Beast”: 1) Solicit big donations from the wealthy 2) Reward them with large tax cuts that balloon the deficit 3) Pay for the deficit by cutting services for the middle class 4) Repeat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starve_the_beast)
* “The unions don’t compromise, why should we!” – This is absolutely false; the unions did offer concessions, but Walker wouldn’t let that stop him (http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/govt-and-politics/article_a05349be-3be1-11e0-b0a1-001cc4c002e0.html)
* “Democrats created the problem in the first place” – If you look at the track record of presidents since the 70s, it is pretty clear who is creating the deficits; the only exception would be Obama, but let’s not conveniently forget the shit hole of an economy that Bush left him with (http://www.mcadcafe.com/images/commentary/us_federal_budget_deficit_20040510.jpg)
The facts are all there if you look at them. And anyone who has facts to come back with, I would welcome them; I’m actually interested in learning what others think. Everybody else, please feel free to return to your Fox News sponsored circle jerk.
There has to be a primary challenge to this worthless Rino. He was the driving force on the ethanol mandate and the indexed gas tax. Can’t spend enough can’t tax enough.
The district is poor but it is conservative a good tea party type could win in a primary.

Schultz has turned and will NOT vote for this attack on the middle class. a Republican with a brain. My guess is that he if he chooses he will get reelected by huge margins with labor support. He might be the only Republican left after we recall everyone else!!!
Grats you just woke alot of people up and lost WI and the 2012 elections in the process!!
SM: So you folks in labor think you are the majority? You do realize the Dems lost the 2010 election, right? You do realize that there are millions of voters that are not union workers and actually want a state to run?
Governor RACE IN Wisconsin »
Walker 1,128,159 52%
Barrett 1,005,008 47%
Why are you caving in? Did the unions, Dems or Libs find something in your background to use as leverage. We look to you to have the vision to see what is over the horizon if this current madness is not stopped. If you were in combat, which we are to a degree, I would hope you would not abandon a fellow soldier because you feared the consequences. Show some backbone !!!!!!!!
We voted in November for people like you to stay strong and cut the stronghold of government workers. But as always we have to deal with the enemy within. You are standing in the way of making this country work once again. What were you promised for your waffling? I’m appalled by politicians like you.
You people are idiots. The Republicans in Wisconsin just dug their own graves …history will be the litmus test of who really won. -Wallker will never get re-elected. The Rasmussen indicates that the majority of the people in wisconsin do NOT favor weakening collective bargaining rights. He is the only republican in my estimation listening to the people … thus he is the strongest to stand against his party when he feels morally they are doing wrong. It takes a couageous person to do that. You are all a bunch of ignorant lemmings …and like lemmings you are all jumping off a cliff to your demise. I can’t wait! Hahahha… funny little minded people tricks are made for rabbits …
SM: Oh, so leadership is about being reelected? Really, that’s what doing the right thing is about? Walker ran on this very issue and was elected for it along with other Republicans. If the people of WI decide that fiscal bankruptcy is the answer and giving public unions carte blanche is the answer, then so be it. Your state will fall apart just like Michigan and any one with any common sense will leave.
Let’s see what the long term ramifications are of all of this. One thing is for certain, it could not continue as it was. BTW, a greater % of workers in WI are not union and pay for their inflated pensions.
I guess you missed this poll: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/national-poll-shows-support-for-wisconsin-governor-117828773.html
National Poll Shows Support for Wisconsin Governor
The Free Enterprise Nation (FEN) today released the results of a national poll that shows strong support for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker among Independent voters. The poll of voters outside of Wisconsin, taken from March 3rd to March 9th, included 500 Democrat, 500 Republican and 500 Independent voters.
FEN spokesman, Jim MacDougald stated that “This poll contradicts some of the other polls we’ve seen. According to our poll, 95% of Republicans agree with the Governor, and 92% of Democrats agree with the union. There is not much of a surprise there. But 66% of Independent voters agree with the Governor, and this group is what swings most elections.”
