January 2012. In the ad, Governor Walker takes his message directly to Wisconsin voters by laying out a number of the promises he made during his 2010 campaign, how those promises have been fulfilled, and the positive results the state has seen as a result of what the campaign is calling, “bold and necessary reforms.”
A new year will bring in a new agenda for Governor Scott Walker, who has plans to overhaul the state’s tax code. His major priority in 2014 will be laying the ground for work tax reform in 2015. Walker says eliminating the state sales tax could hold the key to job creation.
“I made a clear objective that every year I’m in office, I want to see the overall tax burden in the state — I want to cut taxes,” said Walker. “Every year I’m in office I want to continue to see the overall tax burden go down.”
Walker says he’s looking at everything from eliminating the state income tax to drastically reducing state property taxes.

In 2011, thousands of government employees and others, enraged by Gov. Scott Walker’s determination to break the ruinously expensive and paralyzing grip that government workers’ unions had on Wisconsin, took over the capitol building in Madison. With chanting, screaming and singing supplemented by bullhorns, bagpipes and drum circles, their cacophony shook the building that the squalor of their occupation made malodorous. They spat on Republican legislators and urinated on Walker’s office door. They shouted, “This is what democracy looks like!”
When they and Democratic legislators failed to prevent passage of Act 10, they tried to defeat — with a scurrilous smear campaign that backfired — an elected state Supreme Court justice. They hoped that changing the court’s composition would get Walker’s reforms overturned. When this failed, they tried to capture the state Senate by recalling six Republican senators. When this failed, they tried to recall Walker. On the night that failed — he won with a larger margin than he had received when elected 19 months earlier — he resisted the temptation to proclaim, “This is what democracy looks like!”

Cops are bursting into homes, seizing computers and other “evidence” while groups are being hit with subpoenas that require them to turn over voluminous and sensitive information - including the names of political donors.
The crime of being conservative is being prosecuted with vengeance.
In Wisconsin, special prosecutor Francis Schmitz is going after conservative groups that were involved in the fight over the recall of Governor Scott Walker and Walker’s union reforms. Subpoenas are requesting “all records of income received, including fundraising information and the identity of persons contributing to the corporation.” They are seeking lists of conservative donors.
These “John Doe” subpoenas are alarming as, under Wisconsin law, when someone receives one of these subpoenas, the only person they are allowed to discuss the subpoena with is their attorney. Not only does this inhibit First Amendment rights, it stops groups from being able to create a unified defense to allegations.

Subpoenas hit allies of Scott Walker as his re-election campaign looms.
Americans learned in the IRS political targeting scandal that government enforcement power can be used to stifle political speech. Something similar may be unfolding in Wisconsin, where a special prosecutor is targeting conservative groups that participated in the battle over Governor Scott Walker’s union reforms.
In recent weeks, special prosecutor Francis Schmitz has hit dozens of conservative groups with subpoenas demanding documents related to the 2011 and 2012 campaigns to recall Governor Walker and state legislative leaders.
Copies of two subpoenas we’ve seen demand “all memoranda, email . . . correspondence, and communications” both internally and between the subpoena target and some 29 conservative groups, including Wisconsin and national nonprofits, political vendors and party committees. The groups include the League of American Voters, Wisconsin Family Action, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Americans for Prosperity—Wisconsin, American Crossroads, the Republican Governors Association, Friends of Scott Walker and the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin’s Carrying Concealed Weapon Law Questions And Answers (from Wisconsin Dept. of Justice)
Thanks to the reforms we passed, Wisconsin’s economy is starting to boom. So much so that Governor Walker is calling a Special Session of the Legislature to pass $100 million in property tax relief.
When Governor Walker took over, our state had a $3.6 billion deficit. Now we have a surplus. Thanks to tax cuts and prudent fiscal budgeting, we are able to return $100 million to taxpayers with a significant property tax cut. After years of property tax bills rising under the previous administration, this will be the third straight year that property taxes have dropped.
Governor Walker has repeatedly outlined five priorities in his tenure: develop our workforce, transform education, create jobs, reform government, and invest in our economy. The Joint Finance Committee has been working with the same priorities. That’s why tax relief for Wisconsin’s middle class families was a top priority in the state budget passed earlier this year.
To make sure property taxpayers benefit from the tax cut this year, we hope to pass the tax cuts next week.
