    Scott Walker Will Not Be Recalled And Will Be A Top Contender For VP

    Scott Walker Will Not Be Recalled And Will Be A Top Contender For VP

    Here’s why.  Despite all the vitriol from the unions and Democrats, Walker is getting Wisconsin’s fiscal house in order.

    From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (h/t @byronyork)(emphasis mine):

    The property tax bill on the typical Wisconsin home would rise by less than 1% annually over the next two years under Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed budget, the Legislature’s nonpartisan budget office reported Friday.
    The Legislative Fiscal Bureau also said Walker’s plan would put the state’s finances in the best shape they’ve been in for more than 15 years.

    It found the so-called structural deficit – the imbalance between spending and tax revenue as laid out in state law – for the 2013-’15 budget would be $31 million. That assumes Walker’s budget passes the Legislature without new spending increases or tax cuts that would add to the deficit.

    Under its existing form, Walker’s budget leaves the state with a fraction of the structural deficits seen in the past eight budget cycles. The next lowest structural deficit in recent years was $1.5 billion, or 48 times as much as what Walker’s proposing.

    Now if he could help do for the U.S. what he is doing for Wisconsin.

    A recall election in Wisconsin next spring, with all the union hysteria and name calling contrasted with a record of fiscal responsibility, may be just what Walker needs.  And it will work to the advantage of the national GOP, which will be able to contrast Obama’s base with the needs of the country.

    True story. Our youngest daughter, Kelly, lost a tooth. Then … she really lost it. (I told her to stop carrying it around.)

    Characters: Me (as Scott Walker as the evil Tooth Fairy).

    Kelly (as the unions).

    I found a note from Kelly to the Tooth Fairy under her pillow. It read:

    "Dear Tooth Fairy, Guess what? I can't find my tooth. Can you just give me $10 or something? Love, Kelly."

    I took the note, and, in addition to money, I left her a note, too. It read:

    "Dear Kelly, $10?? Are you nuts little girl? Here's $3. Love, The Tooth Fairy."

    Me for VP of our home? I already am.

    "The property tax bill on the typical Wisconsin home would rise by less than 1% annually over the next two years under Gov. Scott Walker's proposed budget…"

    1% it's an outrage! It's the biggest tax hike in history!

    Sorry, just getting in touch with my inner republican there.
