1. May They Reap What They Sow

If Wisconsin were to die, the autopsy would show massive signs of malignant Kochism and an addiction to sociopaths.

4. They don't even try to hide their corruption any more...

At one point in history they would try to hide this relationship. Not anymore... They don't care that we know a legislator and a lobbyist are brothers. They just say "fuck'em" and do want they want...

10. Lame excuse. If he's so sure, he should have let them vote.

 

But then, we would know the names of those that killed it, wouldn't we? I think Scott Fitzgerald is from a bright red area, possibly Waukesha, and has no worries about being reelected. FUCK. WAD.

14. Republicans don't want anyone to come out of this life alive...

Many of them would gladly pull some lever if it mean more money for the Republican party or more money to line their own pockets. They would gut every program and live off the blood and guts of every person who could no longer afford a house, a car, or a job.

Nothing for you!!!!

15. Hmmm. Connection to the "Cancer Treatment Centers"

That advertise everywhere (including NPR) and are trying to get the bank accounts of cancer patients that are so frightened that they'd fall prey to these wolves?

16. Did you actually find this connection?

Because I did not.

This is his (Jeff M Fitzgerald) firm's website.

EDIT: The name of the bill was the "Cancer Treatment Fairness Act".

Fuck Republicans and fuck Democrats that pretend Republicans are reasonable decent people.

21. Cancer Treatment Bill PASSES WI Sentate

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/stalled-cancer-bill-now-appears-headed-for-a-senate-vote-b99228036z1-250789571.html

Madison The state Senate overwhelmingly voted Tuesday to help curb costs for cancer patients taking chemotherapy pills and another vote was scheduled for Thursday in the Assembly, where Republicans could still make changes that could kill the measure.

GOP Gov. Scott Walker hadn't taken a firm position on the measure by late Tuesday, though his spokeswoman, Laurel Patrick, said Walker would likely be "inclined" to sign it if the Assembly backs the measure by as wide a margin as the Senate did.

Walker's Democratic opponent, Mary Burke, supports the bill.

The proposal approved 30-2 by the Senate would require health plans to provide the same coverage for expensive chemotherapy drugs taken as pills at home as they do for the expensive chemotherapy administered through IVs at hospitals or clinics.

"Oral chemo is the wave of the future," said Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills), a breast cancer survivor and lead sponsor of the measure in her house. "In a big way today we're bringing our statutes up to speed of the technology of this drug."
