    Walker is saying these education cuts are needed to balance the budget but his own kick-back expenditures to his special interest groups alone cost more than the size of the deficit which is being used to justify these teacher cuts.


    To the extent that there is an imbalance -- Walker claims there is a $137 million deficit -- it is not because of a drop in revenues or increases in the cost of state employee contracts, benefits or pensions. It is because Walker and his allies pushed through $140 million in new spending for special-interest groups in January. If the Legislature were simply to rescind Walker’s new spending schemes -- or delay their implementation until they are offset by fresh revenues -- the “crisis” would not exist.
