Jim Tobin, A Friend Of Liberty (1945-2021)

MADISON, WI – Republican State Senator Dale Schultz doesn’t get it. On Sunday night, the Wisconsin politician said he would vote against Governor Walker’s proposal to limit the damage done by public sector unions against the people of Wisconsin.
Schultz has said he wants limits on collective bargaining to expire in 2013. It’s clear that he withdrew because he fails to understand the point of Walker’s bill. The only reason the unions are offering to make any sacrifices is that they don’t have the power right now. They hope that in 2013, they will be able to again hold the people of Wisconsin hostage, through campaign contributions forcibly taken from the paychecks of the union rank and file. Walker’s proposal would also end the practice of automatic union deductions from workers’ paychecks, a victory for workers’ rights.
“Right now the unions have been disarmed, and all their supporters in the Democratic Party can do is run and hide,” said Jim Tobin, President of Taxpayers United of America (TUA) , “but if they get the gun in their hands again, the first thing they’ll do is point it at the taxpayers of Wisconsin. That’s why we have to set limits now.”
“The union bosses want to sit at the table with the government and decide how much money they can take from the pockets of the rank and file,” said Christina Tobin, Vice-President of TUA, “Campaign contributions in the last WI Governor race reveal that the Koch PAC gave $43,000 of its own money to Scott Walker (R), while union bosses gave $334,556 to Walker’s opponent, Tom Barrett (D); a whopping 778% more in contributions!”
All voters have a duty to protect their property, and the future of their children and grandchildren, by letting Senator Schultz know that this is unacceptable. His contact information is below.
“Even Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the author of the New Deal, opposed collective bargaining for public sector unions,” said TUA President Jim Tobin. “Senator Dale Schulz appears to be somewhere to the left of FDR.”

Dale Schultz, In 1994 I purchased my retirement home. Since then my property taxes have gone up more than 350%. Please do not vote for the union as I will have to leave this state if you do. Thanks, Thomas Scully P>S> I’m in your district!
