The next Republican candidate for president will have to pass the “Walker Test.”
Walker’s reforms changed the balance of power, the correlation of forces between taxpayers and statists in Wisconsin: a traditionally blue/left-of-center state. Walker showed those reforms could survive a counterattack by every union in the nation focused like a laser on crushing liberty in one state before it could spread.
Walker won his election in 2010. The Left tried to defeat him by winning a Supreme Court race that could have undone his reforms. They failed. The left tried to recall Walker himself—and failed. In 2012, Walker and his Republican majorities in the Wisconsin House and Senate remain in power. Stronger than ever. Tested by fire.
■Walker did it first.
■Walker did it in a blue state.
■Walker defended his progress in three elections.
■Walker kept his legislative majorities intact.
■Walker’s model is scalable. His reform can be implemented in all of the 24 other states with Republican governors and a Republican legislature. He has a raised a standard that all Republicans can follow to success.
He has left no excuses for other Republicans who would offer themselves for state or national leadership.
Nevermind the fact that over 200k people voted dems over reps in the state. Gerrymandering at it’s finest.
Now if he can just keep from being indicted. Come on all you other Republicans. Get in lock step. There are no excuses! Nice source too…Human Events. The newsletter of the John Birch Society.
Walker may want to look into the idea presented here in Milwaukee by County Supervisor Joe Sanfellipo. He’s suggesting the County save the $107 million they pay on healthcare insurance and instead pay the $7 million dollar penalty to the Feds and have all County workers use Obamacare for their healthcare needs.
I’m sure most State employees are Obama supporters and would have no problem using the healthcare system devised by their man. Make it so Scott!
Add WDEC fiasco and Milw Co Exec Staff convictions to the Walker Test list.
Is this the first piece of Walker 2016 for President propaganda? Seems like it is tailored for that purpose.
I’m curious. Is WI in better shape in terms of finances or IL?
IL did what you like, raise taxes and made no reforms to public union bargaining.
IL is a basket case.
Walker is a model for good government.
Notice no reply from Dave. BTW, alifornia is now in the same boat.
