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