Republican Governor Cuts Taxes
Last comment by Sheran 3 years, 7 months ago.

Scott Walker has transformed Wisconsin, but the New York Times doesn’t think it’s very newsworthy.

They buried a tax cut story on page fourteen and gave it only a few lines.

The news:
Wisconsin legislature just passed a half-billion dollar tax cut

The state’s budget surplus is almost a billion dollars
When Walker took over the deficit was almost $2 billion
Unemployment has dropped by a third

But why wouldn’t someone like these things? It would seem that partisan political beliefs would be the only reasonable explanation. After all…

Walker infuriated the public unions with changes to their collective bargaining agreement

He’s the first-ever governor to survive a recall election

The state legislature has moved solidly from Democrat to Republican

Walker is an unabashed conservative and a 2016 Republican front runner

Had Walker caved on union demands, raised taxes, publicly urged moderation and bi-partisan compromises, and followed the types of policies endorsed by the left – and still have gotten similar economic results – it seems like the Times would be trumpeting this on page one. But he didn’t and so they haven’t.

In an economic environment where the “Republicans have no ideas” narrative is constantly repeated, Walker has demonstrated a governing blueprint that works.

Wouldn’t the rest of the country benefit from hearing about the path Walker has made?

It’s a travesty more haven’t heard about the things people are doing that actually produce results…
