He's churning out talking points

From the Koch Brothers faster than he's helping to create jobs:

"In Walker's first year in office (ending last December), Wisconsin had the 49th worst record for private-sector job growth, losing 9,700 jobs. But preliminary January numbers ... were the best of any month so far of the Walker tenure: private-sector jobs rose by 15,700. That now puts the state in the positive column for net private job growth during the governor’s first 13 months, with 6,000 jobs added. Still, it’s a long way from the governor’s campaign promise of 250,000 new private-sector jobs during his first term.

In an interview with a local CBS affiliate in Wisconsin, Walker blamed the Affordable Care Act for the slow growth.

"From what I hear overwhelmingly across the state, from small business owners, is tremendous concern about the impact it's going to have on those small businesses," he said. "It's probably if not the top, it's one of the top, things I hear that has made small business owners hesitant to add more jobs, is their concern about what the true impact will be."
Which totally explains why your State is 49th...because even if that were true (which, of course, it isn't) Wisconsin was not affected any more than the other 50 states.

But fantasy is what you and your patrons Randolph & Mortimer do best.

maybe squeezing public sector jobs is creating a drought.
