blame game smaller

Check out these headlines:

From JSOnline, Scott Walker budget could create deficit in next biennium:

Gov. Scott Walker's 2013-'15 budget bill would leave the state with a potential shortfall of $664 million for the following two-year budget, a new report shows.

The memo from the Legislature's nonpartisan budget office shows the state's finances would take a big swing from the current budget, which according to the method used in the memo will leave a $146 million surplus going forward. But the Legislative Fiscal Bureau still pegs the potential shortfall at the second-lowest level since 1997.

The impact of these budget figures could fall on everyone from taxpayers to students and those in need of government-funded health care.

$30 million of the spending would go to state aid to private voucher schools that Walker's been pushing.

From FDLreporter, Walker blames jobs report on politics:

Gov. Scott Walker... said Thursday that recall-election politics are responsible for the state’s drop in private-sector job creation. A report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released Thursday shows the state is ranked 44th in the nation for creating private-sector jobs. The data, which covers a year-long period that ended in September, shows a recent steady decline. Wisconsin ranked 42nd in the previous quarter, and 37th in the quarter before that.

From WisPolitics, Dems, Walker spar over latest job numbers:

New monthly job numbers out Thursday showed a mixed economic picture for the state, but most critics focused on quarterly numbers showing Wisconsin still lagging in job creation.

The state’s unemployment rate rose to 7.2 percent in February, a 0.2 percentage point increase over the previous month. While the state gained 12,100 jobs the same month, it also lost 2,300 private sector jobs.

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics also released state job numbers for the third quarter of 2012. They showed the state creating jobs but at a rate slower than most states. Wisconsin ranked 44th among states in job creation from Sept. 2011 to Sept. 2012.

That last report also said that Walker blamed the protests and recall election for the poor numbers. What he failed to do is blame himself for being the motivation for the protests and recall election in the first place.

But surprise! He didn't blame President Obama. Yet.

PhotOH! The GOP to-do list

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Above is the Republican to-do list (provided by someone with a photo editing program and an understanding of today's political climate). Sure brings out the ol' holiday spirit, doesn't it? Do you feel the warmth yet?

Are you inspired when you think of a vanishing middle class, no help for those at and below the poverty level, the sick and elderly losing what's left of their health, welfare, and dignity? And how about those civil rights? Hey, are you from another country? Then you're icky! (Unless you'll do our dirty work for nearly nothing) Need an education? Just ask the folks to fork over all that cash they don't have! Wanna vote? Too bad! Not a white male? Go sit over there... way over there.

Are you feeling the love yet? The family values? How about that "pro-life" compassion for those who are already, you know, living? Hmm?

Here's the Democratic to-do list. Compare and contrast:

  1. Win the presidential election. ✔
  2. Retain Senate majority. ✔
  3. Add seats to House of Representatives. ✔
  4. And this stuff. ✔

If you need a brief recap of this ongoing story, the Bain-owned company, Sensata, is outsourcing Freeport, Illinois jobs to China; employees wanted Mitt Romney to intervene. The soon-to-be-ex-workers have been forced to train their own Chinese replacements. Their jobs are being shipped to China in November.

Welcome to Mitt Romney's America.

Ed Schultz went to Freeport, now nicknamed "Bainport," and broadcast his show from there. This is a must-see, must-share:

To refresh your memory, the Bain-owned company, Sensata, is outsourcing Illinois jobs to China; employees want Mitt Romney to intervene. The soon-to-be-ex-workers have been forced to train their own Chinese replacements. Their jobs are being shipped to China in November.

America first! Go Mitt!

Sensata worker Mary Jo Kerr:

"Once it closes, it's devastating for the whole entire town. Everybody's just walking around slumped over not knowing what they're gonna do."

"[I thought Romney's] gonna create American jobs. He says that's what he's gonna do... And when I found out that he owned Bain Capital and Bain Capital owned Sensata and they were shipping our jobs to China, I was furious."

"He's a bald-faced liar. I mean, he's going out there saying I'm gonna create American jobs when, no he's not. He's profiting off of jobs going overseas."

"Having to train somebody [Chinese workers] to take your job and you don't have any control over it, it was probably the hardest thing I had to do."

Thanks to Ed Schultz for staying on this story.
