Walker Opposes Aid To Veterans

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 5, 2009

Governor Jim Doyle announced today that $17.6 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be used to strengthen 37 communities across the state through community development. Among the communities benefiting from these stimulus funds is Milwaukee County.

Since the press release and the greatly diminished local daily newspaper did not cover the story, I took it upon myself to do so.

I called Supervisor Theo Lipscomb who is the Chair of the County Board’s Task Force on Economic Stimulus.

Lipscomb told me that Milwaukee County will be receiving $750,000 which has been designated to build a residential center for veterans, and it will be associated with VETS Place Central, which serves to meet the needs of homeless veterans. The new center will be built on the corner of 35th Street and Wisconsin Avenue.

Since Walker has come out publicly, on a national stage, to denounce stimulus funding and stating that he will not be accepting any stimulus funding for Milwaukee County, he is also opposing allowing homeless veterans to have a place to live.

We already knew he was opposed to helping the homeless, but apparently it doesn’t even matter that they are also veterans.

And since he opposes veterans having a place to live, it follows that he opposes the United States of America, for whom the veterans served.

Why does Scott Walker hate America?
