Under Scott Walker, Wisconsin Has Prospered–Keep That In Mind For 2016

Before Governor Scott Walker took office in January of 2011, Wisconsin was seeing high unemployment, stagnating incomes and a high tax burden. Fast-forward four years: The state enjoys strong growth in employment and improvements in living standards through higher after-tax incomes. Thanks to a fiscal policy of reducing tax and regulatory burdens while balancing the budget, Wisconsin now outperforms many of its neighbors.

Scott Walker Campaign Scores Early, Winning Over Enthusiastic Conservatives

On the ground, the emotion coming from supporters is impressive.

You know by now that Scott Walker has officially thrown his hat in the ring. We were there, as several thousand people, young and old and many in wheelchairs, waited over two hours on a sultry afternoon in the Waukesha County Exposition Center. We came to listen to the forty-fifth governor of Wisconsin bid to become the forty-fifth president of the United States; the Republican Party of Wisconsin received over five thousand RSVPs for the event.

Three Simple Rules to Keep Republicans from Being Seduced by Dishonest and Orwellian Word Games

In this guest post, Cato Senior Fellow Dan Mitchell offers advice for Republicans looking to hold their ground against tax increases.

(This piece was originally posted on the International Liberty blog).

Those who had the misfortune of seeing President Obama go after “tax breaks for corporate jets” as part of his press conference may be wondering why he was attacking a provision that was in his so-called stimulus and enacted by a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2009.

But that’s just routine politics. The folks in the White House are probably laughing about screwing jet builders after collecting campaign money from them in exchange for that provision two years ago.

The more important thing to focus on is the way that the big spenders in the White House and elsewhere are trying to build support for a big tax increase by characterizing tax breaks as “spending in the tax code.” The left obviously hopes Republicans are so stupid that Orwellian word games are all that is needed to get them to acquiesce to legislation that would increase the amount of revenue going to Washington.

Scott Walker’s wife, toughened by life, is ready for fires of a campaign

Tonette Tarantino’s year of sorrow came when she was only 30. First she lost the grandmother who helped raise her, like a second mother. Weeks later her brother, her only sibling, died of bone cancer. Then her husband died of kidney failure.

Now, as Tonette Walker, the wife of Wisconsin governor and GOP presidential hopeful Scott Walker, looks back, she says those brutal 12 months in the mid-1980s prepared her for her life ahead — and most especially for the rough ride of politics.

Wall Street Journal: GAB’s Kennedy had a friend in IRS’ Lois Lerner

The good doctor Hunter S. Thompson once observed that “it never got weird enough” for him.

The late author of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and his own twisted existence may have changed his tune had he covered Wisconsin’s political John Doe investigation.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Kevin Kennedy, the director of Wisconsin’s speech regulator integrally tied to the probe into dozens of conservative organizations, is a longtime “professional friend” of former IRS tax-exempt director Lois Lerner.

Lerner led the Obama administration’s IRS division accused of targeting conservative groups seeking 501(c)(4) nonprofit status. The Senate Finance Committee is looking into more than 6,000 emails from Lerner once thought to be lost.

“We celebrate the 4th of July NOT April 15th…

because we value our Independence FROM Government NOT Dependence on the government.” -Governor Scott Walker

Why I’m Considering Running for President

Over the past several months, I’ve had the privilege of traveling around the country with Our American Revival, sharing our message of how to tackle difficult problems and repeatedly win tough policy fights with bold, conservative reforms. We’ve spoken with thousands of hard-working Americans, and the response has been incredible.

But we’ve done more than just talk. We’ve listened. In state after state, the message we are hearing from people is simple: America needs a new leader – from outside of Washington – with a record of not just talking about conservative principles, but fighting for them and winning with them.

Times Hit Piece Ignores Scott Walker’s Success

Fresh off its widely-mocked exclusive on the traffic citations given Marco and Jeannette Rubio – fewer than one per year, combined – the New York Times has an in-depth look at Scott Walker and the wealthy conservatives who backed him throughout his rise to national prominence. It’s a classic of the genre.

The article is more sophisticated than the awkward and error-filled attempted hit on Walker by Gail Collins from the Times editorial page, who blamed Walker for layoffs that took place before he had been elected. And it avoids the kind of over-the-top claims that require corrections. But the piece nonetheless makes clear that its authors believe Walker’s views are far out of the mainstream and that he owes his success to wealthy conservatives eager to exploit a simpleton as the vessel for their ideological goals.
