ManateeGag: and this is one of their top men to run in 2016. good luck with that.
SilentStrider: You mean institutin policies that have never wormed in the past didn't work now? Who could have seen this coming?Oh yeah. Everyone not on a Koch binge.
bronyaur1: Unless it turns around pretty quickly in WI, Walker & Co. are going to have a bad time in 2014.
ScaryBottles: I have no sympathy for dumb inbreds who live in Wisconsin, you elected the potatohead and then when given the opportunity to rectify matters you chose not to.
Lost Thought 00: Repeal child labor laws. That'll fix everything.
NateGrey: Since when do Republican policies actually work.
Jim_Callahan: To be fair, we're talking rust belt here, and they've been crashing since like 2006. I'm not entirely sure we can blame Walker entirely for the trend continuing. The companies centered in the region seem pretty intent on suicide environment regardless.That said, he hasn't really helped, no.
zappaisfrank: Republicans are already lining up to blame this on Democrats..."The reason Walker's policies haven't worked is because they weren't allowed to work because Democrats interfered with them. If they had been left alone, Wisconsin would have full employment and would be a place the rest of the country would be flocking to because there would be more jobs than people...but those damned DEMOCRATS ruined everything!"THIS is what Republicans REALLY believe..
rtaylor92: ScaryBottles: I have no sympathy for dumb inbreds who live in Wisconsin, you elected the potatohead and then when given the opportunity to rectify matters you chose not to.Basically came here to say this.There's really nothing else to say. This is what Wisconsins actually want so who are we to judge?
kkinnison: I have said this before, as a Native Chedderhead it wasn't because we elected mr douchebag, It was because the only other choice was ANOTHER politician (Barrett) from Milwaukee that only got on the ballot because everyone in Milwaukee likes him, even if the rest of the state is still kinda "Meh" about Tom Barrett
namatad: "Wisconsin now has a projected $484 million budget surplus. Walker has proposed $343 million income tax cut in his budget."But not pay off all the debt or put some in a rainy day fund (that might be there ...).I am actually surprised that the cuts weren't 520 million, because a deficit leads to more job growth.On the plus-side, way to go with the surplus!!Alas, like the feds, rather than do something useful, they will piss it away.http://www.usdebtclock.org/state-debt-clocks/state-of-wisconsin-debt -c lock.htmlWAIT WAIT WAITThis says that wisconsin has massive debt. Why arent they paying their bills first??http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/state_spending_2013WIbnso no actual surplus, just a pretend surplusWhy are we not allowed to kill these people again?Surplus is what you have after you pay ALL of your bills including your debt.ARSEHOLES
Mike_LowELL: The country just went through four years of Taxbongo policies. Of course his state's numbers dropped, you morons.
