    The photo that could defeat the Wisconsin recall

    Governor Scott Walker is facing a massive recall effort mounted by national unions and Democrats looking to take out a leading Republican.  It appears that enough signatures have been gathered to force a recall election in the spring.

    Walker will win if Wisconsin voters have a reaction similar to that of reader Tim when he received his new property tax bill recently:

    Howdy Professor,

    Love the blog, read it daily. Thank you for your efforts.

    I’m from Wisconsin and support Gov. Walker. I received my real estate tax bill for my home today. For the first time in years they didn’t go up! Imagine that.

    I live in NC and my taxes are $2,281.00 for a $160,000 house. I call that pretty steep especially since I came from Alabama where I paid $435.00 for a $100,000.00 house. And lest you run away with the idea these are shacks, they are very nice houses. The one I have now is a four bedroom two bath brick home on a half acre of land in a pretty posh neighborhood.

    If the people in Wisconsin have kept up with the news, they will see Ohio is much regretting not passing the bill to somewhat rein in the union’s power. Many, many layoffs. Whereas, things are looking much better in Wisconsin since Walker took office. Schools are actually saving money. Imagine that. The unions were forced to compromise instead of arbirarily giving orders to the government.

    Well, aren’t you all lucky! My taxes went up $64 (or 3.9%). I expect them to go up next year since I don’t own a corporation.
