> Wisconsin Racket's Bluff Called
> Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov.
Scott Walker doing away with 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.
> 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 the outfit was guaranteed to get the insurance
business from the teachers, and the State had to pay for it (not the
teachers) the insurance company was increasing annual costs every single
year to become the most expensive insurance company in the state.
> Then the company was donating millions and millions of dollars to its
favorite democrat politicians who, when they got elected, guaranteed to keep
funding the union's outrageous costs. In other words, the insurance company
was a "pass through" for Wisconsin taxpayer money directly to the democrat
> 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 the State of Wisconsin is
free to put the insurance contract out for bids 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 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 and
explain 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.
