Fraser Institute Embraces Wisconsin Gov Scott Walker And Advocates Teaparty Politics For Canada

"Facing a $3.6-billion deficit***, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker recently declared his state "broke." To overcome this fiscal challenge, Mr. Walker proposed cutting generous public sector pension and health care benefits, and threatened immediate layoffs if concessions were not made. He also introduced legislation to restrict collective bargaining in the public sector and limit future wage increases to the rate of inflation.

Mr. Walker has clearly tapped into the growing backlash from ordinary working taxpayers against the generous compensation of the public sector. His willingness to tackle Wisconsin's fiscal situation head-on is a welcome breath of fresh air.

While Canadian politicians should be following Mr. Walker's lead, most are simply deferring fiscal problems into the future, unwilling to make the tough choices today."

Fraser Institute

The same offensive article also appeared in the Financial Post.

***NOTE: The Fraser Institute never mentions that the Wisconsin debt is largely due to the ongoing corporate tax cuts to larger corporations as well as a non-progressive tax structure that benefits the rich.

McClatchey Newspapers has done an insightful piece today totally debunking Walker's claims about union pension funds. It's a complete, devious scam which explains why it is so freely embraced by the Fraser Institute whack jobs. I wonder if F.I. has an opening for Glenn Beck when he becomes too rancid even for FOX?

Thanks for that
