RUSH: Democrats are living in mortal fear that Gov. Walker’s success in Wisconsin will be discovered

Rush was emphatic today about the success Governor Scott Walker has had in the state of Wisconsin, noting that Walker is now returning almost half a billion dollars of their state surplus to the taxpayers in the form of property and income tax cuts:

NEW YORK TIMES – The Wisconsin Assembly has passed Gov. Scott Walker’s $504 million tax-cut plan. The chamber approved the bill on Tuesday by a vote of 61 to 35. The Senate passed it earlier this month. Assembly approval sends the bill on to Mr. Walker for his signature.

The governor wants to use a portion of the state’s projected $977 million surplus to pay for cuts in property and income taxes. He introduced a bill in January that would send $406 million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit and cut income taxes by $98 million by reducing the lowest bracket to 4 percent from 4.4 percent. The end result would be a $131 reduction a median home’s tax bill this December and $46 in annual income tax savings for the average worker.

Rush called Scott Walker’s success in Wisconsin the solution to America’s problems but points out the New York Times only gave it a 10-sentence blurb and stuck it on page A-14, giving it as little attention as possible.

He says that Democrats are living in mortal fear that this success by a Republican governor gets discovered by the media and gets widely reported.
