Flat Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight vicious battle between the left in the right unfolding in Wisconsin and that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
First to set up in March last year.
Governor Scott Walker signed a law eliminating most collective bargaining for Wisconsin's state employees.
Can never remember the level while.
Protesting vehemently against the new law it was even vandalism at the Statehouse.
Liberals very angry.
Because if Republican governors can show they'll get budgets under control by limiting compensation to state workers.
That's not what happened all over the country.
So in order to punish Governor Walker the Democratic Party issued a recall and it was successful they got enough signatures to put it to a vote and the final judgment will be made tomorrow.
The stakes are very high here for President Obama who does not does not.
Wanna constrained union bargaining power obviously most American labor unions support mr.
Governor Walker is a pretty good story to tell.
When he took office in January 2011.
Wisconsin and employment stood at seven point 7% now it's down six point 7%.
According to last reading in April.
On the spending front when walker took office there was a budget deficit of three point six billion dollars in Wisconsin.
Now the deficit is projected to be a 143.
Million dollars an astounding.
On the tax front is pretty much a wash Walker's first budget increase overall tax and Wisconsin but some businesses receive tax cuts to all walker.
Seems to be succeeding economically in Wisconsin thus -- focus on ideology left doesn't like him so what I wanna throw him out.
The real clear politics consensus in the polls is that walker will keep his job after tomorrow's vote.
The average has 51%.
45% against him favoring his democratic opponent Milwaukee mayor Tom -- Finally if governor organ does keep his job President Obama American labor and hardcore left we'll all be disappointed it's not so much about walker himself.
It's about the message that will be sent.
Big spending big government -- tough measures when it comes to taxpayer dollars.
