How much should you pay for how much government? - chicagotribune.com
We have the clearest test that could possibly be had coming up in WI on Tuesday. As this article outlines -- Walker's policies have worked to save the WI taxpayers money without cutting services. He has turned a projected deficit into an actual surplus, and business is migrating to WI from neighboring states.
Meanwhile, while outraged, the union folks are paying less for their better benefits than comparable folks in the private sector. What's more, freed from the State acting as bagman for the union and collecting dues, union membership is down significantly. When people are given a choice on paying for the services of the union, most opt out.
Will people support Walker and give us a little bit better chance to avoid the path of Greece, Italy, Spain and California? or will they remove him from office and turn WI back to the path of union control and runaway spending?
Tuesday is a critical day for both WI and America.
