    Review & Outlook: A Wisconsin Vindication - WSJ.com

    I really don't understand how anyone (other than government workers) could support public aka government workers unions--who put a strangle hold on state budgets.

    It's obvious with only a 6.7% unemployment rate (much lower than most states) along with this news that Gov. Walker has done a lot of good for the overall health of the financial condition of Wisconsin. The unions have thrown millions of dollars at this campaign to recall Gov. Walker. Recent polling data suggest that Walker is leading his democrat opponent.

    The 30,000 people who have lost their jobs since Walker took office are not impressed.

    Considering the unemployment rate has dropped since Walker took office your figures are questionable.

    With the Union stranglehold on poltical power in Wiscinson broken it might be possible to put even more people to work and improve their economy even further. I agree with Oreo, how could anyone support out of state Union thugs coming into Wisconson, taking over their government and forcing the population to support a system that pays it's workers twice as much as private sector and not even require them to pay into their own retirement system:eek:.

    LINK? I believe I saw one report that the area in which these jobs were lost--were actually in the district of the Democrat Mayor opponent.

    Governor Walker came into office with an over 7.5% unemployment rate which has dropped to 6.7%.

    I think you need to watch a documentary called "Waiting for Superman" to get a clear picture of what Teacher's Unions have done to your kids "education." Obtaining a life time pass on being a bad teacher--that no one can fire--simply because a teacher reached "tenure" after 2 or 3 years of employment is the worst idea anyone ever came up with.

    In relation to other states in this nation--6.7% unemployment is great! In fact, I would be doing handsprings in the street if unemployment was that low in Colorado--when we're hovering at 8%.

    Here is the comparison between states from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Furthermore--you Obama maniacs--would never shut up if we had a national unemployment rate of 6.7% right now----:lol::lol:
