There is a political revolution underway in Wisconsin. Its residents have stormed the Capitol in Madison and are in the process of taking back their state from liberal politicians, greedy unions, and a morbidly obese government bureaucracy.
With the election of Governor Scott Walker, the retaking of the Wisconsin Senate, and an overwhelming majority in the Assembly, our state is poised to slash spending and undertake the heavy lifting of eliminating the state's projected budget deficit of nearly $3.3 billion over the next two years. It will take both courage and common sense to eradicate the $1.5 billion gap which the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) reports will exist between state revenue and state spending through June 30, 2013. The usual suspects will be implementing their slash and burn "new tone" in an effort to demonize the majority of spending cuts which are not just good fiscal policy – but have become absolutely necessary for the economic viability of our state.
Wisconsin has had enough. There is a political revolution underway. Last November, voters stormed the Capitol in Madison with their votes and are now in the process of fighting back and reclaiming their state from liberal politicians, greedy public employee unions, and a morbidly obese state government whose fuzzy math and entitlement largesse have saddled the state with a $3.3 billion deficit.
