How to Help: Big Push for June 5 Wisconsin Recall Election for Gov. Scott Walker
You do not need to wait until November to make an impact in an election that is critically important to the direction of our country. What happens in the Wisconsin recall election on June 5 will affect every state in the nation, including Illinois.
The Illinois Tea Party fully supports Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and their brave reforms that have helped move Wisconsin in the right direction. They grew Wisconsin’s economy, created tens of thousands of private sector jobs, lowered unemployment to 6.8%, fully funded their state pensions and balanced their budget WITHOUT raising taxes.

“Under his (Walker’s) reforms, friends, our state and our local governments have saved over $848 million dollars and counting,” Rebecca Kleefisch said while speaking at this year’s Chicago Tax Day Tea Party in Daley Plaza.
“This recall election in Wisconsin is about big union power. It is about these big union bosses maintaining government control–of a government that may want to control you,” Kleefisch said. “We are a harbinger, a canary in the coal mine. And we are sounding the alarm–that if the big unions can wrestle control back from We the People–then if it could happen in Wisconsin it could happen anywhere. So we could go backward–but we choose forward,” Kleefisch said.
“Forward” is the state motto of Wisconsin. Unlike President Obama, who is using Forward as his campaign slogan, Walker and Kleefisch have moved Wisconsin’s economy forward, cut spending and balanced their budget.
