Scott Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, used to be in the spotlight of the main stream media on a regular basis. Opposed by the unions in Wisconsin and the left in general, Walker's conservative policies for the state drew massive protests from the left, with demonstrators being organized and even bussed in from out of state by major unions, such as the SEIU.
The main stream media also supported the recall election, in which Walker, despite the protests and big money spent by left wing organizations, triumphed. But suddenly the mainstream media is very quiet about Walker and the state of Wisconsin. The reason is pretty clear to anyone paying attention.
Using conservative policies and principles, Scott Walker has turned the state of Wisconsin around. In the last three years, despite opposition from the left, he turned a projected $3.6 billion deficit into a $912 million surplus, brought down the unemployment rate, and is now proposing to “rebate the money in the form of tax cuts to the people, who own the money.”
Walker's success should be main stream news. It should be promoted as an example of what other failing states should do as well as what the federal government should be doing. But it's not being reported by anyone other than FOX News and conservative pundits.
Scott Walker life has been threatened, as has been the safety of his family. As Rush Limbaugh said just the other day - “They did everything they could to gin up hate, anger, tried to destroy his reputation, his career, and his life,” he said. “He hung in there. The state of Wisconsin instituted his policy reforms, de-emphasizing the role of unions in the state.”
It's working. And the left hates that. Limbaugh continued:
“He’s going to cut income taxes and property taxes, and he made the point that it’s not just a gimmick of budgeting or accounting. It’s the result of serious, significant policy changes,” Limbaugh said.
