    Walker is the ultimate stooge, con-artist, and a good fascist for his corporate masters. In a fair and balanced government, all citizens should share in the cost, and risk of a community asset like a new arena. In the Walker world, where he has stripped public workers of 15% of their wages, stripped working rights, made drastic cuts to public education and the UW system, suppressed voting rights, looted taxes and shoveled money to his benefactors in a pay to play scam through WEDC, limited rights of due process, silence the voice of scientists and experts, spreads fear and toxicity across the state leading to a downward spiral in worst in class in the USA in most leading economic indicators, citizens are likely in no mood to support another of his scams.

    With all the negatives Walker has brought to Wisconsin, it is insanity to support such a civic project to benefit a corporation, without shared profits for the larger community, just so the wealthy class can reside in private boxes and not have to rub elbows with the rabble (the majority). The circus in the form of the Bucks should not be enough to entertain the masses and make us forget what a corrupt and intolerable government system Walker foists on Wisconsin.

    For decades I have supported education with thousands of my tax dollars. I prefer that my tax dollars that Walker stripped from the state budget for education, go towards education and not the new arena.

    I am a pro sports fan as long as I can remember. But my priority is people first.
