Wisconsin Assembly passes legislation restoring public employee fiscal sanity
March 10th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement on the Wisconsin State Assembly vote to protect taxpayers by eliminating many public sector union collective bargaining powers:
"The courage of the Wisconsin state legislators to stand up to the threats and thuggery and protect Wisconsin's taxpaying private sector workers from the avaricious demands of their public sector unions is a model for the rest of America. Wisconsin is leading the nation in responsible fiscal leadership. Governor Walker, Republican Senators and State Assembly members who have stood firm in spite of vicious personal attacks and even death threats are truly 21st century patriots."
