    I'm stunned looking at those figures.

    Scott Walker promised 250,000 new jobs, all they have to do is:

    Destroy collective bargaining for workers

    Cut education by 1.85 billion

    Give huge tax breaks to corporations

    Give huge tax breaks to millionaires

    Do nothing for infrastructure

    and did he keep his promise? 250,000 jobs?

    NO!

    His state lost nearly 24,000 in the last year. THE ONLY STATE IN THE UNION TO LOSE JOBS!

    Scott followed EVERY Republican policy. Just like Bush. He's destroyed his states economy just like Bush did the nation.

    Get ready people. The RNC has already said they are dusting off Bush's policies. It's called an "upgrade" or Bush 2.0

    Seems Walker found the plan early and followed it to a TEE. The only state in the union to lose jobs. Amazing.

    Walker touted the creation of 15,600 private sector jobs in the first three months of the year and the lowering of Wisconsin's unemployment rate to 6.8 percent from 6.9 percent a month earlier.

    Still, March saw a decline of 4,300 private-sector jobs in the state after two months of job growth. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said Friday that the largest year-over-year percentage decrease in employment in the nation occurred in Wisconsin. Walker had promised 250,000 new jobs in his first term.

    Walker acknowledged Illinois' job growth was greater than Wisconsin's in the first quarter of 2012, including 9,100 jobs added in March. But on a per-capita basis job growth in Wisconsin was 70 percent higher than Illinois, he said.

    Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Friday he believes he won't be recalled from office June 5 - Chicago Tribune

    And there he is. Lying and lying. He is the perfect Republican.

    so when there is a decline in job growth nation wide, we are told its an improvement none the less, when it happens in Wisconsin, its a disaster....at 6.8% no less...yes, I see:rolleyes:
