Politicians (and Donald Trump) are notorious for not having any shame. Expediency and double-dealing are as easy to politicians as breathing in, and breathing out.
Scott Walker, who is in the process of running for President, and who is praised by his followers as some kind of radical cost-cutter, signed a $250 million spending bill to build a new arena for the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks. That's some good old-fashioned corporate welfare for Wisconsin taxpayers.
Apparently Walker feels no shame. He erroneously says that he's doling out this corporate welfare to save jobs, but out of the other side of his mouth he'll tweet something like this:
Walker is certainly not getting government out of the way. He's instead using it as piggy bank for the Milwaukee Bucks.
Putting Walker's rhetoric aside, he embodies the ideas of corporate welfare, cronyism, and to add insult-to-injury, a disgraced neocon foreign policy.
In other words, same old, same old.
