For years Wisconsin was one of the best States in the nation by any measure of comparative development. Then the Koch brothers bought the State and installed their flunky as Governor, Scott Walker.
Now Wisconsin is the 50th for short-term jobs growth according to the US Chamber of Commerce.
And 49th in overall economic outlook according to the Federal Reserve Bank.
49th in projected jobs growth through 2016 according to Forbes Magazine.
45th in wage growth according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
42d in overall business climate according to Forbes.
Scott Walker is apparently considering a Presidential run so that he can do to the Nation what he has done to Wisconsin.
Come to think of it, with the Tea Partisans and their Republican Co-dependents and an occasional Bluedog taking over State by State, maybe we’re all Mississippi now.
