Wisconsin's Budget Reform: It's Working!

[Madison, Wisc...] Two of Wisconsin's most recognized supporters of smaller government and individual liberty have teamed up to produce and distribute a multimedia educational effort that explains the need for, and success of, Wisconsin's recent budget reforms.

In the fall of 2011, the Americans for Prosperity Foundation and the MacIver Institute launched It's Working! The effort includes 60 second television commercials that tout the ItsWorkingWisconsin.com website.

ItsWorkingWisconsin.com includes this nine minute educational video that, along with reports from journalists across the state, chronicles the success of Wisconsin Act 10. The project explains the relationship between state and local units of government and the need for this spring's budget reform measures.

"The left has attempted to win the debate over the future direction of the state by yelling the loudest and the longest," said AFPF-Wisconsin State Director Matt Seaholm. "The It's Working project cuts through the noise to present the facts to the people of Wisconsin who deserve to know the truth."

This spring, Wisconsin could have either raised taxes on individuals, families and job providers, or cut spending. As a result of Wisconsin's budget reform, the state has cut the deficit and reduced the strain on local governments by giving them the tools to reduce their labor costs without massive program cuts or layoffs.

"Since day one the MacIver Institute has been committed to providing the facts to Wisconsin taxpayers," said MacIver President Brett Healy. "The facts are that every week there are more examples of how It's Working and we're making sure those facts get delivered over the air and online."
