America Stands With Wisconsin
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is making history even though he really never intended to. All Governor wanted to do was balance the state budget.
The voters in Wisconsin elected Walker to cut wasteful government spending; entitlements is first on that list of wasteful spending. Approximately eighty percent of Wisconsin voters agree with what Governor Walker is doing because eighty percent of workers in Wisconsin are not under collective bargaining agreements.
Unions Take A Stand.
The resistance from the Wisconsin public sector unions has made Wisconsin’s budget balancing exercise a national awakening. More Americans are paying attention to the follies of the public sector union protesters. More Americans are beginning to understand that the collective bargaining agreements made by public sector unions cost them money.
Americans Push Back.
The public sector unions mistakenly believe that by the Governor removing collective bargaining they are being denied rights.
What rights? Since when did it become a right in America to demand one sector to pay for the over sectors generous benefits. Yes Americans help pay for the poor and down trodden, but we don’t count better pay, health care and retirement packages as paying for the poor.
Public Sector Unions Are Strangling America.
Unions, especially public sector unions, have been strangling America for years and America is about to crack. How many ways does it have to be spelled out for the public sector unions:
- States are broke, there is no money.
- Deficits exist in many states across America…to the tune of billions of dollars…not millions, billions.
- State coffers, private sector tax dollars, are empty.
- The generous wages, health benefits and retirement packages public sector unions have received over the years are no longer sustainable.
With their states up against the wall and out of money where do public sector union members think the money to support their personal generous benefit packages is supposed to come from??
Maybe the union members of these states think their Governor’s should just rape the other citizens of the state by raising taxes through the roof, like the Governor in Illinois did?
Well guess what, taxation can only go so far, eventually the people will have no more money to tax. Eventually the citizens and business of Illinois will get smart and move out of Illinois to avoid the over taxation.
Other States Seize Wisconsin’s Momentum
Governors in states across America were elected to stifle power of the labor unions. With the support of the private sector, these Governors are pushing back on the unions.
In Tennessee a state Senate committee passed a law abolishing collective bargaining.
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels issued an executive order which ended collective bargaining for state employees.
In Ohio, the legislature held hearings to end collective bargaining.
Finally Americans are stepping up. They are tired of the same old sob stories from teachers and state workers. America is on fire with enthusiasm for ending the over extending power of the public sector unions. Congratulations America.
