Major surplus for teachers in Wisconsin now

Evidently, there is now a major surplus for teachers in Wisconsin.  Below, please find the information forwarded to me:

Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott
Walker doing away with collective bargaining for Teachers unions?  The
results are in.  Some school districts went from a $400,000 deficit to a
$1,500,000 surplus as a result.  They are even hiring new teachers, not
firing like the Liberals said would happen.  Why?

It seems that the insurance company that provided all the "so-called"
benefits to the teachers was an insurance company owned and operated by the
teacher's union.  Since the outfit was guaranteed to get the insurance
business from the teachers, and the State had to pay for it (not the
teachers) the insurance company was increasing annual costs every single
year to become the most expensive insurance company in the state.  Then the
company was donating millions and millions of dollars to its favorite
democrat politicians who, when they got elected, guaranteed to keep funding
the union's outrageous costs.  In other words, the insurance company was a
"pass through" for Wisconsin taxpayer money directly to the democrat
politicians.

Nice racket - and this is the racket that is going on in every single State
that allows collective bargaining.  No wonder the States are taking it away.
Now the State of Wisconsin is free to put the insurance contract out for
bids and, lo and behold, they have saved so much money it has turned
deficits into surplus amounts.  As a result, none of the teachers had to be
laid off, everyone got a raise, etc., etc., and the taxpayers of Wisconsin
don't have to pay more taxes to fund the union's political ambitions.

If you weren't aware of the reasons Gov. Walker was fighting to take away
collective bargaining, it gives you an idea of the problem the Republican
Party has.  Outside of one or two, none of them know how to speak up and
explain properly what the problem was.  We could sure use a Ronald Reagan
now, someone who could explain things for people to understand, since we
know that people don't like to read anymore.
