I found the fact that Scott Walker got brought up during one of our discussions on marginalization was quite interesting. I think that there are many ways that this could be brought up. Someone mentioned how there family was marginalized because they're were state workers. Well it can go both ways. I could say my family has been marginalized forever because we pay 100% of our health insurance and other things that state employees don't have to pay or pay very little for until Scott Walker came along. It's not that he wants to "hurt" those people by making them pay for more of their health care and not having collective bargaining. He wants to even the playing field for every one! Why should some people pay for all of their health care when others pay nothing. My dad had a heart attack when he was 44 years old and now he has to be on high risk insurance. He also owns his own small business and doesn't get health benefits and a retirement fund like other people like state employees. My town is mostly democratic and it was funny because most of the people that care the most and have the biggest issue with Scott Walkers plan is teachers! They think that they're being somehow "punished" or "marginalized". I don't think that's the case. My best friends mom works for the state as well as her dad and they understand what Scott Walker is trying to do. He's helping the state so why no pay 10% of your health care cost. It's not the end of the world!
