Media Blackout Over Wisconsin’s Falling Unemployment and $912 million Budget Surplus

21st Century Wire says…

It’s the message that Washington DC fears the most. What happens when Americans figure out that increased social spending and expansion of entitlements and their bureaucracies do not deliver prosperity, or a healthy economy?

Most states are hopelessly in debt – like a crack addict, they cannot say no to borrowed money and to new lines of credit. They take their cue from another helpless addict – their failing US federal government currently running $1 trillion in the hole per year, every year.

Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker (R) has put his conservative economic policies into practice – and with stunning results, in what proponents are referring to as “A Blueprint for Prosperity”.

“What do you do with a surplus?” he said. “Give it back to the people who earned it. It’s your money.”

The Blaze reported:

“The state of Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is “rapidly falling” and the government’s budget ended the year with a $912 million surplus, Limbaugh explained. He says the dramatic turnaround is due in large part to the conservative policies of Gov. Scott Walker.

What’s even more amazing, he continued, is the fact that Walker is going to “rebate the money in the form of tax cuts to the people, who he said own the money.” Limbaugh says the news is “earth-shattering” because, in one of the bluest states, Walker was targeted for removal twice but continued to implement conservative policies that he was confident would help his state — and his strategy appears to be working.

“He’s going to cut income taxes and property taxes, and he made the point that it’s not just a gimmick of budgeting or accounting. It’s the result of serious, significant policy changes”.

… It was not reported on one cable network, much less all of them. It was not reported in the New York Times, the Washington Post, or the LA Times,” he added. “It was reported in Wisconsin. There was an AP story on it, maybe some local papers picked it up, but just as a filler.”

… Walker is proposing a $504 million property and income tax cut plan as a means to return some of the surplus money to the people of Wisconsin. Some Democrats and Republicans are already criticizing the plan and are calling for changes.

The unemployment rate in Wisconsin dropped to 6.2 percent in December and has been dropping steadily since 2011.
