Walkerstan's budget planning fail -- a secret success?

I am, of course, assuming they planned it... on the other hand, maybe this is not a failure at all. Maybe this is exactly what Walker, the GOP, and his owners out of state had planned all along.

So long as the "emergency" continues, "emergency" measures will be required. Okay, I take it back. They're geniuses!

Walker's budget shortfall
‎"In 2011, Gov. Scott Walker saw a $137 million budget shortfall as evidence of fiscal failure. He portrayed it as a crisis that demanded passage of a "budget repair" bill that attacked collective bargaining rights, the civil service system and local democracy.

Now, a year later, the Legislative Fiscal Bureau reports that Wisconsin faces a $143 million deficit."
