Before Governor Walker was elected….and, re-elected in a recall fiasco…….the former governor, together with his crony, the woman who would be Governor, lost over 130,000 jobs and created a state where unemployment was way out there at over 9%. And, oh yes, we had a budget deficit of over $3 billion. But, hey, who remembers that?
Well, I do. I also remember that our “balanced budget” was partially from taking moneys from a private fund that the doctors had themselves created — and funded — to help pay for cases where the malpractice insurance was NOT sufficient. Many of these problems were not obvious; but, our state was ailing and in a dangerous “state”.
Then, Wisconsin came to her senses and elected Scott Walker who had a fiscal plan to bring our state out of its malaise. It wasn’t easy. The teachers unions protested violently, invaded and occupied our statehouse, and acted like unfettered mobs. Several Democrat lawmakers ran away to another state in an attempt to prevent a vote that would make certain union pension plans and other agreements more in line with what the rest of Wisconsin employees were paid.
Fortunately, the shenanigans of the teacher unions and Democrats didn’t stop Wisconsin’s progress back to a more democratic environment. Thanks to the hard work of Governor Walker, Wisconsin is now in great shape. The unemployment rate is way down, to about 6 %. We have a budget surplus…..yes, a surplus! And, Wisconsin taxpayers are even enjoying a cut in their taxes !
Most Wisconsinites are happy with the way Wisconsin is recovering from the unwise and fiscally irresponsible previous administration. More people are able to find jobs. More businesses are happy to settle in Wisconsin. And, people, in general, are feeling more secure knowing that the state’s economy is moving into a better and better condition.
And, if our Wisconsin and our economy are doing so well, why would anyone want to change a successful administration?
Should we move back to when our state was in economic trouble? No. After all, our state motto is “Forward”.
Let’s keep moving Forward. And, the only way to do that is to re-elect Governor Walker.
So, please. Help Wisconsin. Help yourselves. And, vote for Governor Walker. Keep Wisconsin moving Forward.
