We are back from a really awesome trip to #Taiwan. In hindsight, delighted that we picked Taiwan, instead of the more common places that Indians typically go to.

Noticed a lot of things that struck us as unique in this trip, so here is a compilation #PPinTaiwan (1/n)
(2/n) How did we choose Taiwan? @AirAsia was running a sale last August when Preethika noticed a good deal, and in a spur of the moment decision, we decided to go there. Yes, the flight tickets were bought 9 months ago. #PPinTaiwan
(3/n) Firstly, getting a visa to Taiwan is pretty easy, especially if you have had a US, UK, Schengen etc visa in the last 10 years. Yes, even if it is expired, it is fine. More details here: passingports.com/taiwan-visa-fo…
Thanks to this, visa for the both of us was free #PPinTaiwan

.#Wisconsin story. The #Foxconn boondoggle, by @AustinCarr. I fear @GovEvers & his successors will be doing damage control on this Scott Walker legacy for many years to come.
More on the #Foxconn boondoggle -- I don't disagree with anything @SykesCharlie says here. We should be clear, though, that although Trump does a cameo at the end of this story, this massive corporate welfare project was a Scott Walker production.
Right from the start, Walker as governor took the view that state government was there to serve business: to cut their taxes, make labor and environmental regulations easy to live with (or dodge), and ladle out incentives with a smile in exchange for the promise of jobs.

Under #WiLameDuck bills, WisGOP Legislature gives itself the majority of WEDC Board appointees, who oversee #Foxconn. They now appoint WEDC Board CEO instead of Governor.
As if we didn't know WEDC was a #wiright slush fund before. SHUT IT DOWN @Tony4WI

2/ #WiLameDuck bills also try to prevent AG-elect @JoshKaulWI from pulling out of lawsuit to end #ACA. It would make the WisGOP-dominated Joint Finance Committee approve of such a pull out. Seems unconstitutional.

@JoshKaulWI 3/ Heres the LFB summary of all of the #WiLameDuck garbage. In addition to micro-managing Evers and Kaul, it also has a more tax cuts for the rich thrown in.

Even if my hands were dirty, I wouldn't wash them in this water."
