Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin is facing a recall election brought about by unions upset with his reforms to public worker compensation policy, particularly the area of pensions. But while those reforms may have deflated the cushy deal unionized public workers in that state were enjoying, itís turned out to be a great deal for overall taxpayers.
MADISON (http://www.wisconsinreporter.com/exclusive-analysis-finds-wisconsins-act-10-saving-taxpayers-big) ó While a lightning rod for controversy and recall, Wisconsinís Act 10 has paid significant dividends to taxpayers, according to a new analysis by the Beacon Hill Institute for Public Policy Research, at Suffolk University in Boston.
Act 10, which curbed collective bargaining for most unionized public employees, in the whole has saved taxpayers more than $1 billion, according to The Economic Impacts of the Wisconsin Budget Repair Act. The study is slated for release this week by Beacon Hill Institute, a prominent free market think tank.
What the analysis found is that without the law, which in part requires covered public employees to contribute more to their benefits and holds wage increases to the rate of inflation, Badger State governments would have been forced to raise taxes or make deep job cuts to meet budget expenses.

This reform helped Wisconsin close a $3.6 billion shortfall. with pensions and public worker compensation a chronic problem nationally, Wisconsin (where Walker will almost assuredly win his recall election) has become a model for reform.

As a Tea Party Patriot member, this email was sent to me today. For those wanting to get involved, here's a possible way you can join in the Wisconsin vote, and help keep this recall of Scott Walker from happening. UB


Dear Patriot,
What is happening in Wisconsin right now is truly incredible.
Tea Party volunteers are pouring into the state to help execute Tea Party Patriots’ voter education campaign.
These heroes have put their personal lives on hold in order to walk door to door to door talking to voters who are fed up with the left-wing political machine and their crazy recall scheme.

This is truly a grassroots effort. We have posted some videos on the TPP website of what these incredible patriot volunteers are accomplishing. Please take look at them when you have a chance.
However, right now, I need your undivided attention.

Tea Party Patriots and Tea Party groups from across America have literally fielded an army of volunteers to do battle with the national left-wing political machine in Wisconsin. It is a Tea Party Army!
And like any army it needs logistical support in order to win battles.
For the Tea Party Army that means transportation, hotel rooms, campaign literature, signs, etc.
That’s why I am emailing you today.

The recall election is only 12 days away. We have an incredible amount to do in such a short time.
The Tea Party Army must stand up to these unnecessary, wasteful recall elections that are causing bedlam and chaos in Wisconsin.

The leftists have thousands of activists campaigning across the state spreading lies. They believe they can convince the voters that Wisconsin will be better off going back to the days when liberal special interests controlled everything and the state was flat broke.
And the liberals believe that if they can win in Wisconsin, they can take their message – and their violent, hateful tactics – to every state in union this fall!
The Tea Party army needs you. Please click here to make the most generous contribution you possibly can today. (http://teapartypatriots.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=378811b3c052d40a005861416&id=a50aa612c8&e=dd50f8a8e2)
Volunteers are literally standing by on the ground in Wisconsin waiting for us to provide them with the materials and support they need.
Please help these patriots by making a contribution today!
