Possibly one of the most important elections in the country this electoral cycle will be the recall attempt to unseat embattled Governor, Scott Walker in Wisconsin on June 5th.
Why repeal him? He told the voters what he had planned, balance the budget, cut taxes, bring public sector unions to the table and give them a reality check. He kept his promises and more, Wisconsin is not only out of the red it is running with a $154 million budget surplus. Simple economics tells us there is no need to raise taxes, and entity can generate more money for its general coffers by increasing the number of tax payers.
Of course Team Obama is pushing for Governor Walkers recall as he sends in busloads of Union Agitators in an attempt intimidate WI’s voters.
Walker is ahead by 6 point is the polls, with most signs indicating the voters are happy with his efforts that also included bringing new business and more jobs to the state.
Though the 27,000 new jobs are a far cry from the 250,000 he promised after his full for year term, Walker has accomplished all of the above during 16 month when a great deal of his time and energy was wasted on the ridiculous recall in the first place.
In contrast with the governor, Diane Feinstein and most liberals have pursued the opposite approach, raising taxes, creating no economic incentives to stay within their states in search of a more business friendly environment.
California is continually burdened with the highest state and sales taxes in the nation. Per capita CA is close to the top of those Americans who still remain unemployed.
As her challenger Elizabeth Emken has frequently said, bringing CA back to a vibrant economy and making it once again the Golden State is not rocket science. Quite frankly it’s a matter of following the example of Scott Walker. Said another way, do the exact opposite not support legislation that liberals like Diane Feinstein adore.
At 83 it’s unrealistic to expect the elder senator to change her ways or even understand that growth from capitalism, not socialism provides the way to economic while her agenda and will continue to bring shared misery to Californians as the watch their employers leave the state for more tax friendly environments.
Not once has Feinstein called for a repeal or significant reduction in the corporate income tax or capital gains and dividends. Elizabeth Emken has. Please see her on the issues here. because Elizabeth understands job creation and Dianne will not.
