The Walker Agenda Is Still Working! Part CCXXXI

Scott Walker has started a new tactic with his five thousandth commercial of the campaign, claiming that his agenda has been good for business and has created all sorts of jobs.

Except for when it has failed yet again:
Fine home decor store Cranston will close shop in late August or early September, bending to economic pressure after 10 years in business.

"After the crash, we did the best we could to hang in there," co-owner Mark Van Ess said.
No one should be surprised by this.

Due to the lower income and failing economy that Walker's agenda has created, people can't afford to have niceties like home decor that doesn't come from a thrift store or garage sale.


  1. Politifact: TRUE — Scott Walker says Wisconsin tops its neighbors in income growth.
    Wisconsin’s total personal income is increasing faster than all 12 of its Midwest neighbors. (Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota).
    Politifact: “When we looked at percentage income growth for both regions, Walker’s claim held up. Among those 12 states, Wisconsin’s 3.33 percent income growth led the way, topping Ohio (3.12 percent) and Illinois (3.08 percent.) Minnesota and Iowa were toward the low end at 1.6 percent and 1.13 percent, respectively.”

  2. Silly WHAAAA-ska troll. Politi-fact conveniently left out the fact that the first 2 years under Walker were so bad that Wisconsin is still DEAD LAST for income growth since the end of 2010.

    When you're cherry-picking and saying things out of context, YOU'RE LOSING. And even Republi-fact can't cover that up
