did not start Wall Street it started in Madison Wisconsin in my state capital
3:33
it wasn’t two months later we finally won those battles that
3:37
that they actually went on the wall street around the rest the country so my
3:40
apologies for certain had
3:41
a but but we did what we thought was important you see Wed
3:45
back in 2009 about a year and a half before the election to net and I sat
3:49
down and talked about thought about ultimately prayed about
3:52
the state of our state and we saw that a state that had a
3:56
unemployment rate peaked at 9.2 percent state were under the previous government
4:01
lost 233,000 jobs were taxes are going up by over a billion dollars
4:06
by the governor democrats were in charge before we saw state it was in trouble on
4:10
behalf of our two signs we said we gotta do something and I’m proud to tell you
4:14
some four-year
4:15
plus years later our state is turned around we couldn’t have done it without
4:19
the support of people helping us out as you see when
4:22
when they came in with all those protesters they were trying to
4:24
intimidate us
4:26
that’s what they do at the state at the federal at the local level
4:29
they tried to intimidate the big every special interest when I’m proud to tell
4:33
you tonight
4:34
that we were not intimidated charged us with refocusing on why we’re electing
4:38
the first place in the people we elected to serve
4:40
and instead of backing down we stood up and took the power
4:44
outta the hands are the big %uh verse special interest to put it firmly
4:47
in the hands of the hardworking taxpayers
4:55
SERR reforms
4:57
now we change unions in our state but but we we were able to change our
5:02
economic status we we went from 9.2 percent unemployment beginning a 2010
5:06
8.1 percent the month before I took office
5:09
were down about four and a half percent last month we took it
5:18
we have a labor participation rate that’s well above the national level we
5:21
are a
5:22
3.6 billion dollar budget deficit turned it into a surplus in each in last year’s
5:27
balance our budget moving forward
5:28
we have a rainy day fund its a hundred sixty five times bigger we took office
5:32
the pitch pension system delightfully for in the country
5:35
we’ve done all the things you would expect economically fiscally the one I’m
5:39
most proud of us
5:40
how we change state local government for example our schools we now can hire
5:45
and fire based america’s we got rid of seniority and tenure
5:49
the
5:57
member back in 2011 out as protesters at public schools are gonna fall for
6:01
we did some like that one here to tell you four years later graduation rates
6:05
are up
6:06
third-grade reading scores are up ACT scores are now second best in the
6:10
country
6:10
but states where the kids take the exam protect exam but it’s not just in those
6:19
areas you see we did other things as well sometimes people don’t know about
6:22
this cuz they hear about the union’s
6:23
but we did other things we we reined in regulations we
6:27
we got rid a frivolous lawsuits we we did more
6:30
we defunded Planned Parenthood a pass pro-life legislation
6:35
the we pass Castle Doctrine a concealed carry so the people can protect
6:45
themselves
6:46
their family and their loved ones if they’re law-abiding citizens
6:49
who woulda thought this but we made Wisconsin the twenty first state in the
6:57
country to have the right to work
6:59
the freedom to work without being forced to beat a labor union in our state it’s
7:10
now
7:10
easy to though but hard to cheat if you want about the state wisconsin you gotta
7:15
have a photo ID to vote the next election the
7:19
the it so I tell all the view that
7:28
not to brag well maybe not too much
7:31
but rather tell you in a state like wisconsin
7:34
a state that hasn’t gone Republican for President since 1984 when ronald reagan
7:39
lasted for reelection
7:40
if a state like that can take ideas that are big
7:44
and bold and have enacted and then elect a governor not just the first time but a
7:49
second time
7:50
and a third time in four years and now I like to governor but add additional
7:54
seats and a majority
7:55
going from Democrat to Republican to adding more republicans
7:58
adding even more republicans last fall if we can do it in Wisconsin
8:02
we can certainly do in washington at all across America
8:13
and let me give you three quick reasons why that’s important for our country
8:17
tall that growth reform and safety
8:20
issue right now I think we’ve got a lot of politicians in Washington who think
8:24
we grow the economy by growing Washington
8:26
I got a message for we grow the economy in cities
8:30
in towns and villages all across this nation that people create jobs
8:34
not the government’s about time to get the government out of the way that means
8:43
raining in frivolous and outta control losses particularly all those new ones
8:47
that the Obama administration put in place
8:49
it means once and for all repealing
8:52
Obama Care outright folio immediately
8:56
at twenty patients and families back in charge it means using the abundant so
9:04
what God has given us here in this country in on this continent
9:07
when it comes to feel energy supplies with all the above not picking winners
9:11
and losers
9:12
but using all that we have here on the West in all across the country
9:15
starting with approving the Keystone pipeline on day one
9:25
it means not only through kindergarten through twelfth grade but beyond
9:29
helping people get the education and the skills
9:32
and the qualifications they need to succeed in a way that says worker let
9:36
the other side
9:37
worry about how low wages are we’re going to get people the skills they need
9:40
to succeed
9:41
with careers they pay two or three or four times
9:45
the minimum wage because we want everyone to be lifted up in this
9:48
economic recovery
9:49
and finally it means lowering the burden when it comes to taxes
9:57
warning the bird and hardworking taxpayers will be individuals
10:01
or a job creator so that we’re competitive again in the world today
10:04
so that more american jobs can come back home to put more bark fellow citizens
10:09
back to work
