"I think what we've shown in Wisconsin is that it's not about austerity--it's about reform,â Walker said. "And what I mean by that is if we just come in our state and cut things across the board that means you cut your priorities as much as you cut things that aren't quite as important. We reined in collective bargaining. We put more power back in the hands of the taxpayer at the state and the local level. I think nationally we need that same sort of reform no matter who is running for president. I'd slash the marginal tax rates for everyone across the board--go to a simpler, more flat tax."
We should hasten to add that, in stark contrast to #OccupyResoluteDesk, Walker actually has a record of, you know, reforming.
"We put more power back in the hands of the taxpayer at the state and the local level," he says. That's kind of like my notion of "redistribute power, not wealth," that the slack-jawed sycophants keep rejecting. You little knuckle-draggers stay lovely, now.
