Democrats' greatest fear
Democrats' greatest fear is having Gov. Walker serve out his duly elected first term, with voters experiencing the positive results of responsible governing.
Our working class is far broader than those who are members of unions by force or choice.
Hardworking farm families and others who work in positions related to agriculture comprise a large, important segment of Wisconsin's working class.
Living paycheck-to-paycheck is not an affliction born by public workers alone.
If the majority of Wisconsinites have health coverage at all, premiums are usually high and coverage poor, with high co-pays, and too many have no retirement or pension plan, due in part to unfair taxation leveraged by collective bargaining to fund 100 percent of pensions and health care premiums for public employees.
Until Gov. Walker took office, public employees didn't even see their health care bills, as the tab was picked-up in full by taxpayers. Now, public employees are seeing itemized health care bills as the result of low co-pays they are required to pay.
Those who are fair-minded are appalled by the exorbitant fees others have been paying out-of-pocket or with much higher co-pays.
These fair-minded citizens respect Governor Walker for his concern for fairness for all, and they proudly pay the minor amounts required of them.
Attacking Gov. Walker is the only choice Tom Barrett has. Barrett has no financial plan.
Gov. Walker didn't divide Wisconsin. The self-serving hate campaign of recall leaders and followers has pitted neighbor against neighbor.
Gov. Walker's policies and improvements have shown our citizens just how truly divided Wisconsin has been for too long…all taxpayers have been suffering unnecessary burdens, which have benefitted only the special interests of Democrats.
Barrett says he will not abolish Gov. Walker's policies which, at long last, require public employees to pay a small portion of health care premiums and retirement pensions.
What Barrett is not saying is that he will not increase public employee wages to compensate public employees for their contributions.
If Barrett and Democrat senators are elected in the recall elections, taxpayers throughout Wisconsin can expect high tax increases, as the Democrats will, once again, need to pander to their union-driven special interests to get re-elected.
We won't see Democrat senators hiding out in Illinois if Barrett is given the chance to take Wisconsin backward to the unfairness that existed before Scott Walker took office.
Instead, these politicians will be behind closed doors, raising their glasses to union leaders…mission accomplished…the stranglehold on Wisconsin taxpayers back in place.
