February 11th marks the 2-year anniversary of announcment of plan that became Act 10.

MADISON – Wisconsin State Director Luke Hilgemann and John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy President Brett Healy released the following statement on the 2-year anniversary of Act 10 being introduced to the public.

“Two years ago, it seemed like it was going to be impossible to bridge the gap of irresponsible spending and state deficits,” said Hilgemann. “It was going to take significant leadership from the Governor and the Legislature to eliminate a $3.6 billion deficit and then there was the announcement of the bill that would become Act 10 and we had the answer. It was a bold and responsible reform that has been an unmitigated success for Wisconsin taxpayers and an example for the rest of the country.”

Special Session Assembly Bill 11 was announced to the public on February 11th and would be officially introduced on February 15th. The bill was eventually signed into law by Governor Walker on March 11th as Act 10.

“It’s working, pure and simple,” said Healy. “In October, we announced that the savings to state and local governments has topped $2 billion and the total continues to grow. Act 10 gave government at all levels the tools they need to rein in costs while continuing to provide the same level of service. While states like Illinois are increasing taxes, laying off teachers and cutting services, Wisconsin continues to be an example of how to budget responsibly.

2. Good call Scuba...

Problem is that the tea baggers are swallowing this hook, line, and sinker...

Had to listen to one at a business luncheon yesterday praising Walker for the Medicaid decision...said he got all those "underserving people" off so people who really needed it could have it.

3. I would love those in the business community to be able to articulate just what tools they

were given to be able to determine who are the "underserving people"?

6. So is the tool discrimination selectively weilded at those who do not meat some other criteria?

Because our Lt. Govt. owes her health to the fact that she used publicly paid for health care..

Because the police are in a Union...

Half way throughout the police officer speaking warns about ALEC wanting to get hands on his unions retirement money... And that ALEC is wanting employers to start using contributions instead of benefits...
