Since Walker has led the state from $3-Billion in the red into the black I suppose that even more Democrats from the WI Legislature should go hide in their faces Chicago.

A large chunk of Walker’s surplus is realized by delaying payments that will ultimately cost taxpayers more in interest. The budget numbers released do not account for a sizable shortfall in the state's health programs for the poor that Walker's administration says it will deal with through increased efficiencies and spending cuts. Walker is using the George Bush method of accounting by painting feces red and calling it a rose. The end result is more costs kicked down the road for someone else to take care of.

I can't wait until this happens in MN. The DFL has always been fiscally conservative.... Ahhh, who am I trying to kid. We are headed off our own fiscal cliff and the DFL has got the petal to the metal!

Of course the economic "vital signs" are steadily improving in Republican Wisconsin! Democrat complaining says any reduction in spending is going backwards. This is false! They purposefully remove the context-- a few overly-compensated public employees lose and the majority wins! Thank you Scott Walker!
