Walker's record on Slow Job Growth and our ever Increasing Debt.

Supply side Republican diehards have seen their economic dreams turn into one nightmare after another, culminating into what we now call The Great Recession.

The hard work it would take to readjust their ideological thinking is apparently not going to happen. Remember, this is a party of elected freeloaders who get their legislation from lobbyists, all the while despising every taxpayer supported second.

Fiscal Conservatism Fails Again: Scott Walker's economic report card is dismal, as we can all see by Wisconsin's poor showing nationally and in the Midwest. For Walker, slogans and spin can't alter the facts.

The Wisconsin Budget Project charted Scott Walker's failure:
The number of private sector jobs in Wisconsin grew by 1.2% in 2013, compared to 2.1% nationally. State lawmakers have passed dozens of tax cuts since 2011, but that hasn’t spurred job growth. Despite nearly $2 billion in tax cuts over four years, job growth in Wisconsin continues to be slower than anyone would like, and our growth in gross domestic product is also well below the national average.  
While CEO's praise their willing dupe Scott Walker for all the tax cuts, these "job creators" forgot to...create jobs.

  1. And this information or rather the fact that I haven't seen it on TV or heard it on the radio is why SW gets re-elected. No disrespect (and many thanks) to the bloggers that publicize these facts, but their audience is limited and most are already persuaded. Burke's campaign or some "independent" group needs to be playing this up. Yes it's summer. Yes it's early. But you have to hit voters over the head a lot of times for it to sink in.
