|OBAMA AGAIN SIDES AGAINST THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER
Assault on unions? How about plunder and assault on taxpayers? Obama, every American worker makes sacrifices and big contributions. Why should taxpayers have to finance union employees’ great salaries and benefits?
|UNIONS LIVING LARGE ON THE BACKS OF TAXPAYERS
Government employees in Wisconsin get amazing benefits: “They get a generous defined-benefit pension with minimal contributions on their part. They also only pay 6 percent of the cost of their health-care premiums. Few taxpayers enjoy anything this generous.
Government employees get these benefits because of the special privileges government unions enjoy. Government workers in many states — including Wisconsin — must pay union dues or lose their jobs. The state subsidizes their fundraising by using its payroll system to collect these forced dues.
This gives the union movement billions of dollars, which it uses to elect favored candidates…”
The Brown County Taxpayers Association agree with the Governor Walker’s budget proposal, especially with the provisions “that deal with government employee compensation costs. The time for adjusting government employee pension and health care benefits is long overdue. These benefits grew disproportionate to those received by private sector employees because of the power of public employee unions.”
|WHY SHOULDN’T PUBLIC EMPLOYEES PAY 5.8% TOWARDS THEIR PENSIONS AND 12% OF THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE?
Governor Scott Walker’s proposal seeks to close the deficit by having public employee contribute 5.8% toward their own pensions and 12.6% of their own health insurance premiums. His budget proposal closes the deficit without raising taxes or firing state employees.
Details of his budget proposal:
