Just yesterday it came out that Wisconsin had the highest job loss rate in the nation. Solid manufacturing growth ... but apparently staffed by an overseas employment market (or perhaps by robots).

Mouthwash - while I too share some questions about how that growth was accomplished ... the statement "Heavy manufacturing continues to be source of growth for the region with export oriented manufacturers leading the way," said Prof. Ernie Goss, who oversees the Creighton study" .... would be a contrary point to your presumption. I can't imagine any company "repatriating the profits" made on products manufactured in Malaysia and sold in India ... just to make the company look better in the news and quarterly reports. The intended for export manufacturing must have occured here in the states. No?

According to liberals we don't manufacture anything in this country. Facts are we are still the largest manufacturer in the world. Sorry that all this bursts your bubble.

Let's see now:This was all done without the tax breaks that the Republicans are eager for. In fact, Minnesota businesses earned millions of dollars in profits last year and this year should be no different even if the tax cut bill gets vetoed. Meanwhile homeowners and children are languishing, health insurance premiums are at an all time high. Looks like welfare for corporate America has been working but the people that government is supposed to protect and serve have been thrown to the wolves. A hunting season on wolves won't help in this case though

Thank you President Obama for 33 straight months of expanding manufacturing.

The job growth we are seeing is in spite of the efforts of the left to kill the economic engine of this country. Being in manufacturing, I know that with Obamacare, massive tax increases on the horizon, and growth choking regulations from the EPA, it is only because of the business spirit of America that this growth exists. Obama and the left can take absolutely no credit for this growth. In fact, they should be embarassed by it because all of their efforts to stunt the manufacturing growth of this country have failed. I hope people on the fence for the next election take a close look at what is happening and make a decision as to whether or not there will be manufacturing jobs for their children and grandchildren, as they are the ones whose financial well being will be crippled by the policies and spending habits of the Democrats.

"Just yesterday it came out that Wisconsin had the highest job loss rate in the nation" Walker is trying to clean up the mess left by Democrats just as you claim Obama is cleaning up Bush's mess. If Obama couldn't fix it in 3.5 years why do you think Walker can in less than 2?

"This was all done without the tax breaks that the Republicans are eager for." Or more stimulus dollars. Gee - imagine that.
