This highlight text comes by way of the facebook page Shit Scott Walker is Doing to My State:
Today in the JFC meeting when questioned about the provision that would allow Walker’s administration to sell any state owned process without notice or a competitive bidding process.
Legislative Fiscal Bureau: “There is no provision that would prevent the DoA from selling the State Capitol building. They could sell it.”
Remember when there was a provision to sell off power plants at no-bid contract in the original 2011 “Budget Repair Bill”?
That got taken out after the public got to noticing.
Back in those days, a few liberal news outlets presumed that Charles and David Koch might be interested in purchasing those power plants. In response, the Brothers Koch tousled everyone’s hear and demurred “Oh don’t be silly, my subjects – err I mean “my simpletons”… err umm – I MEAN “CITIZENS”.”
[Attention Koch Legal Team: That is satirical commentary.]
That was before we saw Scott Walker criss-crossing the nation begging for campaign contributions. As much as I may personally detest the dynamic Koch duo, there’s little reason to now presume that only those two are salivating at the prospect of a cheap, sweet slice of Wisconsin that’s theirs all theirs.
