Walker falsely whines Democrats controlled everything for years!

Even after 4 years of failed policies, Scott Walker is still blaming everyone else for today's problems.

Of course he's lying:

Yes, former Governor Jim Doyle created the Great Recession, and Democrats controlled government "for many years."
Doyle only had a Legislature under total Democratic control for his last two years, 2009 and 2010.

In fact, Republicans controlled the Assembly and Senate for Doyle’s first four years. Control then was split for two years before Democrats enjoyed their brief unfettered reign.

Going back further, to 1995, Republicans in Wisconsin controlled at least one of the three power spots every year until 2009.

The kind of single-party dominance that Walker claimed Democrats have enjoyed for many years is rare in recent Wisconsin history.

Walker, though, is now in year five with Republicans gripping all three levers of authority at the Capitol.

The Republicans have had that status more than twice as long as the "many years" Walker said Democrats did.

We rate the claim False.
You gotta ask yourself, what else is he lying about? Here are similar thoughts from the Wisconsin Gazette.
