When President Bill Clinton's term was up our country was in great financial shape. When President George W. Bush's term was up our country's finances were in a complete and total mess. In a different time and different place what Bush did to the middle class would have been considered treason.

If you want more of the same vote for the guy who said on public television that he doesn't care about poor people. You could take all the $50-million-a-year corporate executives in the land, and they couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again in four years. It's up to us voters to elect people who have a conscience and who are willing to divide up the pie a little more evenly.

For the used-to-be-middle-class workers in Wisconsin who voted for Gov. Scott Walker, it's going to be much harder to get decent wages, benefits and health care for yourselves if you are willing to take them away from people who already have them.

How do corporate executives figure the American people can buy their goods and services if they don't have jobs?
