Gov. Walker: Honor Vets Who Fought Hard for Democracy, Freedom

As we look forward to celebrating Veterans Day and 2012 as the Year of the Veteran we will continue to focus on honoring our Veterans by doing all we can to help them secure good health, security, and happiness when they come home.

Gov. Scott Walker delivered the weekly radio address titled Honoring Veterans. The following is the transcript from his address. 

Hi, this is Scott Walker.

As we look forward to celebrating Veterans Day and 2012 as the Year of the Veteran we will continue to focus on honoring our Veterans by doing all we can to help them secure good health, security, and happiness when they come home.  Beyond just words our state is taking action to show how much we appreciate their service.

So far this year, we’ve held 16 job fairs for veterans, connecting hundreds of employers with veterans looking for work.  This week we partnered with VETansfer to launch a program focused on growing on veteran-owned business startups.

Beyond helping veterans create jobs in the private sector and find work, we’re on track to christen a new Wisconsin Veterans Home in Chippewa Falls early next year.  We are excited to provide the most modern living conditions and best health care to veterans.

One of my most memorable events of the year was I when had the opportunity to visit with Wisconsin Troops stationed overseas.  They were and are doing a fantastic job representing our state and nation as they serve our country. 

As we look toward Veterans Day, it’s important to remember the men and women in uniform who have fought so hard to preserve the democracy and freedoms we enjoy each and every day.

The state partnered with the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association to produce and distribute brief radio address once a week.  Audio files and a written transcript of this radio address can be accessed on http://www.wi-broadcasters.org and http://walker.wi.gov/Weekly-Radio-Addresses.  To download an mp3 file, you can right click the radio address link and click “save link as.

It's not the job of government to create jobs. It's the job of government to maintain a level playing field and create conditions that foster job growth. Given the fact of the global economy, the public sector has to be paid less, so that the private sector can be taxed less, so they can compete globally. There are 7 billion plus people on this Planet - and you, Bren, need to stop being so selfish. Americans need to recognize that if others are to have a slice of the pie,, they must each take less. You show your selfishness in every thing you post. It's all about you, yours, and what you have. Live simply, so others may live. The Hate has to be eating you inside. Perhaps you should consider a move to California? The Conditions may be more to your liking. Voters approved Proposition 30 "temporarily" increasing the state sales tax and income tax on individuals making over $250,000. They voted against Proposition 31 that would allow the governor to cut the budget in fiscal emergencies. They voted against Proposition 32 would prevent unions from making campaign donations via members' dues. Moreover, and worse yet, Democrats picked up two more votes in the state legislature giving them a supermajority, capable of passing any tax hikes they want.
