Wisconsin governor tells feds no, we'll keep our parks open



quote:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is defying a directive from the National Park Service to close down several state parks that receive federal funding in the wake of the partial government shutdown.

The Republican governor has directed the state Natural Resources Department to keep open parks that receive a majority of their funding from the state, The Hill reported.

The department recently intervened after the Fish and Wildlife Service placed barricades near a Mississippi River boat launch because it was on federal land. The barricades were removed because of a decades-old agreement between Wisconsin and the federal government, state officials said.

Scott Walker is in impressive man. He may be one of the few true conservatives out there.

Obama's temper tantrum is about to go into the screaming histrionic mode now.

He will probably move to close the federal highways.

Walker being the man

So what could the Feds do? Would they send in the military to shut it down?

So NOW Wisconsin wants to run things on their own. Where were they when it was time to set up their own health care exchange?
