80% of Stimulus Money in Wisconsin Goes to Public Unions

The defeat of Wisconson republican senate incumbent Scott Brown is apparently the most important economic factor in the state’s recovery. When analyzing use of stimulus money in the state I’m assuming that is the only conclusion most rational minds will come to. Let me restate that. Brown’s reelection is the most important factor to Barack Obama. There is much about the Obama controlled White House’s use of funds to question but his behavior mirrors the beginning of his presidency. The GM/Chrysler bailout early on was not as it seems as explained by Awr Hawkins with Breitbart.com

“…When Obama pushed through his stimulus package shortly after taking office, the money going to bail out GM andW Chrysler was not so much intended to shore up those corporations as it was intended to shore up the unions at those corporations. In other words, although one of the ubiquitous reasons given was saving these two iconic American companies, the real goal was to pass tax-payer dollars to Democrat-dominated union members (to keep them voting for Democrat candidates for the foreseeable future). In a real sense, this is nothing more than a sophisticated money laundering scheme. [Attribution]

Moving on from the bailout of automakers to the Obama stimulus we see Ford was in fact the beneficiary of a large chunk of tax payer money.  I am in the beginning stages of researching the subject but I think its safe to assume Ford used tax payer money much in the same way as the other two large automakers used tax payer money from the bailout… to strengthen the union. In 2011 Daniel Howes with TheBlaze.com explains why its was a mistake for Ford to brag about not taking bailout money; 

…The ad, pulled in response to White House questions (and, presumably, carping from rival GM), threatened to rekindle the negative (if accurate) association just when the president wants credit for their positive results (GM and Chrysler are moving forward, making money and selling vehicles) and to distance himself from any public downside of his decision.

This president is such a strong proponent of freedom of speech and tolerance of other’s views it gives me a “Chris Wallace type” tingle down my leg. Sigh. Now yet another example of government waste and abuse of stimulus money has been exposed. Circling back to the first piece cited by Awr Hawking with Breitbart.com;

…But it gets worse. In states like Wisconsin, far from the automakers and their union workers, 80% of stimulus funds “went to public unions.”  That means these unions received $600 million in funding which they are now using to fill the coffers of Democrat candidates and to pay for ongoing opposition to Gov. Scott Walker. As a matter of fact, public employee unions have already spent more than $8 million in their effort to recall Walker. What this does, in effect, is remove the advantage Walker had achieved in fundraising by placing the weight of the national purse behind Walker’s opponents.



Both the automaker bailout money and the stimulus were used to strengthen unions, or as they called it in Marx’s day… the labor party. I originally stated rational minds can only come to one conclusion based on the examination of the White House’s use of stimulus funds. Obama’s economic recovery policy for Wisconsin hinged on strengthening the “labor party” and Scott Brown’s defeat. Many people do not feel this is good economic policy [myself included] so I’m interested to see how the White House spins this. Unfortunately the Obama administration may not have to spin the Wisconsin issue because there is a chance big media ignores the fraudulent use of funds, so… no need to spin. Makes me wonder how the stimulus money was used in other states but who am I? I’m definitely not the president of the United States or his Keynesian economic advisors. 

Just a small amount of truth surrounding Obama’s use of tax payer money to ensure his reelection.
