Targeting the working class, about whom Abe Lincoln said "all that serves labor, serves the nation. All that harms labor is treason," is not just terrible macro-economics, it's anti-American.
"When Wisconsin ranks dead last in something as important as job creation, it’s obvious we have a problem. While the overall economy and our Midwestern neighbors are adding jobs at a pace consistent with our national recovery, Wisconsin shouldn't be losing jobs, and yet since Scott Walker became governor, we're worst-in-the-nation," stated Michelle McGrorty, executive director of the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund. "Scott Walker's job-killing agenda of slashing education and job training while lavishing tax giveaways on his corporate donors has been a miserable failure."
The sector of Wisconsin doing well now is the dozens of Scott Walker cronies, whom he turned into political appointees with hefty raises—all rubber-stamped by the Republicans in the legislature. And of course those contributors to the Scott Walker campaign who are the recipients of massive taxpayer gave-aways.
