Tax cuts of $100 do absolutely nothing. Priorities completely out of line with reality. Doubling down on his failed idea of cutting property taxes by $13 last year. FAIL

You can bet he's not going to be crowing about Wisconsin's dismal 37th place ranking in private-sector job growth. I'll bet Wisconsin is DEAD LAST in public-sector job growth!

You can bet he's not going to be crowing about Wisconsin's dismal 37th place ranking in private-sector job growth. I'll bet Wisconsin is DEAD LAST in public-sector job growth!----------Considering he inheritted a jobs growth ranking of 49th when the dems ran things, I'd say that moving up 12 places is doing pretty well.

avejoecon - "Considering he inheritted a jobs growth ranking of 49th when the dems ran things, I'd say that moving up 12 places is doing pretty well." ---- Actually Wisconsin outperformed the nation in private-sector jobs growth in 2010, the year before Walker took office. It's been behind the national average ever since.

He's more concerned about padding his Tea Party resume than helping the average Joe, that's for sure.
