Unemployment increases in Wisconsin at twice the national rate

Contrary to Walkers claims about creating jobs, John Nichols writing in The Capital Times reports that unemployment is increasing in Wisconsin at twice the rate it is nationally. According to the national jobless figures that came out this month, the U.S. unemployment rate had risen by one-tenth of 1 percent in June. But in Wisconsin, the unemployment rate was up two-tenths of 1 percent. Thats twice the rate of increase at the national level.

The biggest problem with Walkers policies is that they have not been checked and balanced by responsible legislators. The Senate and Assembly have served as nothing more than a rubber stamp for the governors job-killing agenda. Recall elections on Aug. 9 will allow Wisconsinites to replace as many as six of the rubber-stamp senators and shift control of the Legislatures upper chamber. That wont necessarily reverse the damage that Walker has already done to the states economy, but it could prevent him from doing any more harm.
