The last I checked, Scott Walker is very dependent upon government. (And, perhaps, in need of a refresher course on the Revolutionary period of American history.)
In 1993, he won a special election for a seat in the Wisconsin State Assembly. He was re-elected 4 times.
In 2002, he won a special election to serve as Milwaukee County Executive. He was re-elected in 2004, with 57% of the vote, and again in 2008, with 59% of the vote.
In 2010, he was elected Governor of Wisconsin, winning 52.2% of the vote.
In 2012, he survived a recall election with 53.1% of the vote.
In other words, "gov't" -- i.e., you and I here in Wisconsin; some of us once, all of us now -- has been paying for his dependency during the past 20 years.
Governor Walker's current salary.
If the Governor is so concerned about his dependency on government, let's work together to make sure that he can focus exclusively on his full-time job after November 4, 2014: Running for President of the United States.
