This Wisconsin Racket’s Bluff Called


Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doing away with the collective bargaining for teacher’s unions?  The results are in.  Some school districts went from a
$400,000 deficit to a $1,500,000 surplus as a result.  Why? 
It seems
that the insurance company that provided all the “so-called” benefits
to the teachers, was an insurance company owned and operated by the
teacher’s union.  Since they were guaranteed to get the insurance
business from the teachers and the State had to pay for it, and not
the teachers, they were increasing the annual costs every single year
to become the most expensive insurance company in the state.  Then the insurance company was donating millions and millions of dollars to
their favorite democrat politicians, who when they got elected,
guaranteed to keep funding the unions outrageous costs.  In other
words, the insurance company was a “pass through” for Wisconsin
taxpayer money directly to the democrat politicians.

Nice racket, and this is the racket that is going on in every single
State that allows collective bargaining.  No wonder the States are
taking it away.

 

Now that the State of Wisconsin is free to put the
insurance contract out for bid, and lo and behold, they have saved so
much money it has turned deficits into surplus amounts.  As a result,
none of the teachers had to be laid off, everyone got a raise, etc.,
etc., and the taxpayers of Wisconsin don’t have to pay more taxes to
fund the union’s political ambitions.

If you weren’t aware of the reasons why Gov. Walker was fighting to
take away collective bargaining, it gives you an idea of the problem
the Republican Party has.  Outside of one or two, none of them know
how to speak up
andexplain properly what the problem was.  We could
sure use a Ronald Reagan now, someone who could explain things for
people to understand, since we know that people don’t like to read
anymore.
