Outgoing Republican WI State Senator Rips GOP: ‘How Much Pain Do We Have to Dish Out?’

Dale-SchultzDespite my fairly well known disdain for the Republican party, I do realize that not all Republicans are right-wing lunatics. Though as the years progress, “moderate Republicans” are going the way of CD’s and flip phones. In fact, I’ve told the few moderate Republicans that I’ve met the last several years that they’re better off siding with Democrats than this new wave of ultraconservative tea party Republicans. Because that’s the truth. Ronald Reagan, the conservative icon himself, is closer to being a Democrat by today’s radical right-wing standards than he is a modern day Republican.


Well, one outgoing moderate Republican in Wisconsin, state Sen. Dale Schultz, blasted his party for many of the tactics they’ve been using, not just in Wisconsin, but all over the country.

“We are now literally dismantling the state government, and people need to think long and hard about what they want for a future in our state,” he said.

And dismantling the government is exactly what Republicans want to do. These GOP politicians run on the premise that the government is corrupt and inefficient. Then when they’re elected, they do just about everything within their power to make the government as inept as possible so voters will get on their “anti-government” bandwagon.

They’re literally causing the very problems within our government that they tell the American people are so awful. It’s a great scam.

But the Wisconsin state senator wasn’t done there.

“How much pain do we have to dish out in this state to one another before we finally realize that we have to get along and we have to compromise with one another?” Schultz continued.

Well, as we all know, the word “compromise” with Republicans equates to “weak,” and if you’re seen as weak within the GOP you stand a good chance at getting primaried the next time you come up for re-election. Then again, who really wants a government where both sides work together to pass sensible legislation?

Schultz also hammered his party’s moves in Wisconsin to gut funding for education.

“The K-12 system in the last few years has laid off 3,000 personnel, and it looks to me like that’s going to accelerate. Out my way, I would not be shocked if a huge percentage of school districts wind up going to referendum to have the privilege of raising their own property tax because the state has walked away from its principal responsibility of providing for a free, appropriate and near equal education for everybody,” he said.


“I have no idea where they could come up with that money (for school voucher programs) short of taking it away from K-12 public education which is just going to accelerate its demise,” he continued. “We can’t afford one system in this state. How we are going to ever have ourselves in a situation of trying to fund two is beyond me. … But with Gov. Walker’s impending announcement for the presidency, I know that he is going to do everything he can to push a robust voucher program because that is what’s popular with certain elements of the tea party.”

If I hadn’t told you Schultz was a Republican, I doubt anyone reading this who had never heard of him would have ever guessed that he was. These are the kinds of comments you almost never see anymore coming from someone “on the other side.”

A Republican who sees the value of unions, education, compromise and bipartisanship? Yeah, those kinds of Republicans aren’t getting elected anymore.

Instead we get climate change deniers, creationists and people who based their entire political ideology on the sole premise of “whatever President Obama supports, just say the opposite.”

I just wish more Republicans were looking to politicians like Wisconsin state Sen. Dale Schultz instead of right-wing clowns like Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan.

    They neoconservatives want government – who technically is accountable to the people of the nation – gone, because to a capitalist “people” should not govern, they are merely to be customers.The right wants america, and probably the rest of the planet also, to be one big corporation run by soulless CEOs. Anything you needed to live and have a healthy society should be purchased from them at a profit. Sad thing is half of the country supports them.

  • Pipercat

    … and yet, Governor Hairplug was re-elected.

    • mariannmusings

      A good sales job of lies and deceit, not to mention the people who didn’t bother to vote, reelected him. Followers and non thinking individuals believe his bullshit. Especially the one about ‘oh, I love Wisconsin so much, and being the Governor. Shucks, I am not looking to be President or anything.’

      • Pipercat

        Well, I feel your pain. I’m looking forward to Gubner Shill and Lt. Gubner Crackpot and their upcoming antics in Austin.

    They, the neoconservatives, want a government Of the People, For The People and By the People – which makes it technically accountable TO THE PEOPLE of the nation – gone. To a capitalist “people” should not govern, they are merely to be customers, consumers of for-profit industry’s services and products.The right wants america, and probably the rest of the planet also, to be one big corporation run, not by elected representatives that cost them millions of dollars to buy off, but soulless CEOs that they themselves will appoint. Anything you need to live and have a healthy society should be purchased from them at a profit. Sad thing is half of the country supports them.

    The GOP has gone to great lengths to rig voting in their favor. This country no longer has a voting system that is fair and impartial. These people are mainly followers, they vote and act like sheep. If the leaders were singled out and arrested for the numerous acts of Domestic Terrorism and Treason that they have been pushing. Then the GOP would be lost. A good start would be taking down the main propaganda deliverer Fox news.

    Senator Dale Schultz represented my district in Western WI and I am deeply saddened to see him resign. I wish there were a thousand more Dale Schultz in the Wisconsin Legislature. And this is coming from a democrat! He didn’t really “rip” the GOP, this was a very mild statement compared to what the Republicans are doing to our state and what he could have really said. Yes, these school vouchers are being sold to Wisconsinites as good for the state and how terrible our public schools are, but the real reason, as Dale explained, is to outsource public education and get government out of education. Wisconsin gives considerable more money to a voucher child than to a public school child and there are 0 measurements and 0 accountability in the private sector. Its taking money for education, giving it to a few companies who say they can educate your child so much better, and taking money from the public education system. Then the government can point and say what a terrible job public systems are doing, giving more credence to the expansion of the voucher system. That’s one issue of many that he brought up, but there’s an even bigger issue than education, and that is the environmental problems. The state allows fracking and even though the state regulations have been allowed to expire 9 months ago, the rules for sand and non metallic mining have not been updated. Why you may ask, were the laws and regulations allowed to expire? Per the EPA, the regulations didn’t prevent pollution or water contamination. When Governor Walker was asked about it, they said they are working on it, but declined to say whether any study of the affects of fracking would be in the next budget. Meanwhile, much pollution is going on, like the mine discharge in Chippewa County that turned 18mile creek (a favorite trout fishing stream) into black water! Where was the EPA? Well, they are busy, you know. Walker has eliminated original EPA standards so that more mining companies can pollute our pristine lakes, streams, and floodplains, ultimately affecting our drinking water, which has already happened in some places. No, Dale was quite mild about what the GOP has been doing to Wisconsin. I hope Dale speaks more in the coming months about the dirty underhanded way the GOP and the tea partiers are ruining Wisconsin. There’s enough fodder here for a book on Wisconsin here, Allen.

    I’ve never been able to quite put my finger on which issues conservatives have allegedly moved the goalpost so radically to the right of where center was 40 years ago.

    And no liberal has ever been quite able to articulate it.

    • raypc800

      That one is easy one major goal post has been moved allowing reaching across the isle to compromise on needed legislation. In other words the GOP use to attempt to govern. Now they just do nothing but continuously try to push two things multiple subsidies and tax cuts for the rich and corporations. The GOP at one time use to try to be fiscally responsible. Then along came two unpaid for wars and unpaid for subsidies and tax cuts for the rich and surprise a GOP gutting of the US economy.
      One can safely say the TP?GOP Compassionate Conservatives have done more as Domestic Terrorist to ruin the USA. Then any outside terrorist groups have ever been able to accomplish

      • strayaway

        The last time the government shut down, it was Senate Democrats who failed to compromise. The Republican House had folded on everything except trying to get rid of the new tax on medical devices that Obama promised would never happen to people making less than $250,000/year. Democrats wouldn’t compromise on their new tax on the middle class however and let the clock run out. The corporate subsidies given to insurance companies to subsidize (un)ACA insurance policies runs out at the end of 2016. What then – higher rates? The GOP isn’t fiscally responsible either. Bush proved that. Were you writing him letters telling him to cut back on spending? Those wars were paid for by borrowing money from our children. Hillary, among other Democrats, voted to let Bush decide for her whether to wage that war. Not many Democrats voted against funding those wars or ending them. We are still in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Obama has bombed 7 countries in less then 7 years since Bush. Obama made permanent one half of Bush’s temporary tax cuts for the rich. Obama’s TPP will hurt Americans.

      • raypc800

        Wow the TP/GOP trashed the US economy and President Obama has been bring it back steadily. What was the GOP answer filibuster numerous jobs bills to help Americans. The suffering has been caused by your party putting party first to the point of being willing to let Americans suffer longer. You support policies to not allow others to vote, give all to corporations and rich, not fund for VA. Worse yet the TP/GOP is lock step in support of the Bush Administrations dragging down the USA by supporting torture. Who will pay for this not one GOP member. Instead it will be one of my fellow veterans. Those fighting, embassy workers any Americans in foreign countries are at risk of being tortured. Not because of the report that was released but because the order was given to torture. Once one person was tortured it was known by others. All the report did was confirm what all knew already. The end result will be Americans other then those responsible will pay.

      • strayaway

        I agree that Bush hurt the economy. Obama just put a bandage of debt over the US economy by putting each and every one of us over $25,000 deeper in debt. Bankers weren’t put in jail. It is the illusion of bringing the economy back. Two thirds of new jobs since the end nadir of the depression pay less then the average job lost in the recession. At least three quarter of new jobs under Obama went to aliens; legal or otherwise. The median wage has gone down $1,500/year under Obama although the 1% have fared better under Obama than under Bush. You should be asking why Obama’s policies have kept troops in Afghanistan to this day and are reintroducing troops into Iraq. Obama’s entire North African and mid-east has been and continues to be a travesty.

      • Jim Bean

        Says a delegate of the Harry Reid party that refused to allow votes on more than three hundred bills.

      • raypc800

        Oh you mean the 300 bills that had either more subsidies and or tax cuts for the rich and corporations in them. Please go back to your handlers and tell them that this TP/GOP talking point has been debunked so many times it is now useless.
        By the way if you TP/GOPers want to give to the rich and corporations so bad then give your own money out of your own accounts. It is only fair that you pay for it you want it.

      • Jim Bean

        Yeah, well those bills are part of the legislative process. If they’re no good, they’ll be voted down. You can’t have a weasel blocking everything except what he personally approves of and still have a functional legislative process, if that’s what you want.

      • regressive white trash reli

        Your BMI looks like it’s about at 32 and your waist is well past the 40 inch danger zone. I’m serious, it’s not even funny any more. The vertical chins are a huge red flag. Ask your doctor if you don’t believe me.

        Do you have a Dick’s in
        P-ville? Go there and talk to someone about a pair of running shoes. Start by walking across the street to the cemetery and back every day for the first week, then add another block every week. It may not be too late. Also, download Legalzoom dot com and browse the wills section.

        jihn McCarthy is a Michigan state math teacher who was on here a couple of moths back; not a rightwinger but beyond any social benefit. He –oct 2010– went beserk on campus by stripping nude (ala “Michael clayton” movie) while teaching his class; and was subsequently photod nude ( see my new photo) by a student and then arrested and taken my police to the “hospital”,,,,,,,,,,,,,, U can google the whole affair- was pretty funny castigating him as his dialogue here was limited to: ” your a moron,,,,,i am brilliant,,,,im logical,,,,u make bald unsubstantiated claims,,,,,” you should remember THAT luminary!

        Does Taco Bell yell ‘Didi mao, Didi Mao’ when she wants you to bring in the trash cans from the street?

      • No, she asked me to take them in, not screaming at me like she was a rabid harpy every time she wants something.

        You know, like the way Rebecca asks you to do something around the house.

      • Frank DiCuffolk

        Why are they still out there in the street, then, as per Google maps?

      • Nope, you don’t even see my house in the old Google maps. And since there are three garbage collections(green, recyclables, and trash). 3 out of 5 weekdays there will be cans on the street until the people come home from work, some of whom don’t get back until the evening.

        Now, don’t you feel stupid for asking?

      • OyCuffookHumid

        Stop with the excuses fatty. Go get them and while at it, remove the graffiti from your garage.

        ^^^^TRUE BRILLIANCE^^^^

  • rossbro

    Wondered why Repubs want to dismantle Dept of Education at the same time they cry about the uneducated slobs that voted them in.

    • strayaway

      Which Department of Education? Every state has one and the federal government has a redundant pretty much useless agency with the same name complicating lives.

      • TaxPaying American Voter

        Only for the uneducated.If you cannot under stand raising standards AND accountability of under performing states and thier poor records, like Texas, then you are also part of the problem. If you wish to have stupid offspring, you can home school.

      • strayaway

        Consider that in 2011 $10,560 was spent on the average public school student in the US. Washington DC spent $18,475 per student (US Census Bureau numbers). Yet, in 2013, when the scores were listed listed of public-school eighth graders in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, D.C., not Texas, came in last in math and reading. Got that? Our federal government spends 76% more money than the average state per student and gets worse results than any of them. Yet, you want the clowns that led DC students to the bottom to make our schools better? It’s no wonder the Obamas send their daughters to a private school.

      • TaxPaying American Voter

        You truly are ignorant. Texas last.YOU said it. They DO NOT participate in common core. I will now stop trying to debate facts with a cabbage.

      • strayaway

        I suggest you get a refund on your education. I didn’t say Texas was last. Please reread what I wrote. Here. I’ll make it easy for you. “the District of Columbia, D.C., not Texas, came in last in math and reading.”
        I didn’t say Texas was last. I wrote that D.C. was last. Your reading comprehension skill are lacking.

        If Texas doesn’t participate in Common Core maybe that is why Texas is closer to being middle of the pack. Common Core might as well have been designed to eliminate parents from the educational process. How stupid can these elitist and probably childless educators in Washington be?

      • Chris Muir

        Strayaway: you’ve confused cause and effect. Spending was increased in D.C. due to lower scores, not a case of more spending leading to lower scores.
        Washington D.C. has a much higher percentage of blacks, other minorities, and poor people than the nation as a whole, mainly because the Federal Government was one of the few employers that didn’t discriminate against them during the Jim Crow era. Poor people and minorities are more likely to have deficiencies in education (especially college education) and that’s the main reason for the lower scores.

        Right now, I’m keeping him from following me on the blogs I comment on, and that probably drives him crazy. We should have a pool on how long he’ll keep leaving comments at alicublog when hardly anyone bothers to answer him and I’m there to flag his comments without interacting with him directly.

        Glad you found a friend in shemale regressive. A tax cheat and an Aqualung pervert……a nice liberal match.

      • 31 Avatars now, Pennis. That is probably one of the saddest observations I’ve ever made in my life.

      • Frank DiCuffolk

        Not me, DA. You’re making stuff up again.

        The saddest observation was you owning the all-time record for deleted posts by a liberal on a liberal blog. That one will probably never be broken. One you’ll take to your grave. Well done.

      • And you spend so much time to repeat the same old complaints that I’m not living according to you.

        She’ll come after you when you’re asleep, Pennis. One thrust thru the heart—that’s all she has to do. The house is paid off, and she’ll figure out what to tell the cops.

      • Frank DiCuffolk

        Such fantasies, DA.

        Be honest, doesn’t Taco Bell remind you a little of the Vietnamese captain in The Deer Hunter? The guy that made Michael and Nicky play Russian Roulette in the ‘Last Shot’ scene, deep in the rain forests?

      • regressive white trash reli

        he is delightful the way he ( daily) tries to “follow” me
        ========================================
        I just nuke him,,,,,,and he cries

      • He took one of his Avatars down from my following queue, but there are still some of them out there that aren’t set to private. Now when he tries to copy my following list, all he gets is himself.

        A perfect Xmas gift for a self-absorbed git.

      • regressive white trash reli

        that’s deeee-lightfully hilarious!!

      • I just nuked his second Avatar to follow me today, then locked my profile. He keeps falling for that trick. I guess he’s dumber than the average bear. 😉

      • regressive white trash reli

        how do I lock my profile? make it private?

      • Go to your profile:

        https://disqus(dot)com/by/gemmal

        That will bring your profile up for editing. You check the keep my profile activity private box at the bottom, click Save changes, it comes back saying your settings have been save then click the x in the upper-right hand corner to dismiss it.
        Hope this helps.

      • regressive white trash reli

      • Frank DiCuffolk

        God, two idiots jabbering. I’m so far ahead of both of you it’s not even funny any more. It’s almost pathetic.

        Chutney tries so hard to please anyone who will listen to him. And Shemale’s just an idiot.

    It would appear that this author is actually in favor of nationalism, big brother, and the nanny state. I’m no psychologist but I’m not sure if this is because he wasn’t loved enough growing up and is looking for that oversight and structure he needs to feel ‘secure,’ if he was smothered and individuality frightens him so much that no one should have it.

  • Andrea osuch

    Or that they had the guts to say they disagree. These people are the very personification of WEAK.

  • Balance

    Why anyone would believe that private, unregulated corporations would be any LESS corrupt than a government is beyond comprehension. The belief in “market efficiencies” can easily be shown to become market monopolies, manipulation and are as corrupt as any government program, but WITHOUT the ability of the people to oversee and regulate it. CEO’s can’t be voted out of office by the public. Profits can only come from wages, or short-cuts, service reductions and price hikes. There are limited ways in which “markets” can produce profits but they WILL be paid for by all consumers-in their health, safety, incomes, and prices. Democratic Government by nature, IS not profit. Taxes in, jobs, services, oversight and protections out. Government contracts increase cost by increasing the number of people in need of profit, increasing the risk of corruption, decreasing the oversight. Government of, by and for the people, paid for by the people, performed by the people is no less perfect than contract work, but has the singular advantage of being controllable by the people, at reduced cost, and increased quality. Remember the adage that in any endeavor, the customer can chose two preferences, for quick, cheap, or good, but never three-because whichever two you chose will exclude the possibility of the third. This rush to “privatize” puts more middlemen in the loop, increasing the demand for profits, at the expense of BOTH quality and cost and monopolies seldom provide any of the three consumer “values.” and only provide profits for the relative few.
