Walker pointed out to us that the chief bankrollers of the movement to recall him “are the National Education Association, the AFL-CIO, the American Federation of State County, and Municipal Employees [AFSCME] and all the public employee unions. – Human Events

“In February and March, they were the ones who launched the attacks against us when we started the movement to reform [how much state employees contribute to their retirement programs, which eventually became law in the Badger State. They were behind the attempt to recall a [state] Supreme Court justice in April, and they put an estimated $44 million in the recall of [Republican] state senators [in which some were unseated but the GOP retained control of the senate by one seat].”


“Oh, the hysteria from those on the left is incredible,” Walker laughed, “Look, he’s citing a few figures from last year—a snapshot at the end of the year. Right now, unemployment is 7.1 percent, the lowest since ’08 and we’ve created 150,000 new jobs [since Walker became governor]. And we have a balanced budget. Just contrast that to Illinois, where the Democratic governor and Democratic legislature raised taxes and the results were the opposite—economic meltdown, unemployment at 9.8 percent. and the budget process a wreck. That’s where those who want a recall in Wisconsin want to take us back to.”
