Wisconsin Gov. Walker admits that eliminating collective bargaining saves no money (with video)

The headline:  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker testifies in Washington, D.C.

The link:  http://www.fox6now.com/news/witi-walker-testifies-washington-dc-20110414,0,6096107.story

The summary:  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker admits before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that eliminating union collective bargaining rights “doesn’t save any” money for Wisconsin taxpayers.

The reaction:  You can see the admission in question by clicking on the link above or by checking out the video below (it starts at about 0:57).

I’ve believed all along that Walker’s agenda is merely an attack on unions in order to pave the way to further his political agenda.  Rep. Kucinich is absolutely right.  Eliminating collective bargaining rights saves the Wisconsin budget absolutely nothing.

    What an evil puppet for the Koch brothers. I hope they recall him.

    It saves the state nothing in the present budgetary year. But it will make possible savings in future years, as lax work rules, growth in benefits, and growth in allotted vacation and sick leave are all curbed. Not to mention the deliciousness of the Democrats losing all the union dough they’ve come to rely upon for their campaigns, as “union members” cease to pay their no-longer-state-collected dues!
