Walker says he created thousands of jobs, but he hasn't.
Since taking office as Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker has had very little to brag about. He'll brag to his rich corporate donors that he crippled the rights of workers in Wisconsin, but the two other accomplishments he touts are myths.
What has Walker done for Wisconsin? He didn't balance the budget or create thousands of jobs. He walked Wisconsin back 50 years and then gave it to his corporate donors and their allies.
All of these and far more are nicely outlined with sources in Losses to Working Families Under Governor Walker.
Wisconsin is quickly falling behind, because Walker wants to fight his ideological battles.
Instead of getting Wisconsin on track for the future by working to find the best solutions to our most critical problems, educating our workforce, and enticing high-tech and biotech companies to start in or come to Wisconsin, Walker has done a few other things that are anti-Wisconsin.
- Made it more difficult to vote requiring more time and taxpayer funds and producing longer lines - injuncted
- Concealed carry - opposed by 60%
- For those in support, why do you need to conceal your weapon if you're using it for protection?
The lies about the budget and jobs aren't Walker's only lies. Last year, he tried convincing us that we could save money by stripping collective bargaining rights from our public workers. A month later, Walker admitted under oath to Congress that "it doesn't save any." He also said that he campaigned on stripping those rights, but video has now surfaced of Walker saying, a week before the election, he would negotiate with unions using collective bargaining. And that's just some of the major lies, PolitiFact found a lot more with even more under Pants on Fire!.
So, what has Scott Walker actually done to improve your life?
