Along With Walker's 250,000 Jobs Pledge, Don't Forget...

10,000 new businesses, too, noted PolitiFact:

"If you elect me as your next governor, I'll get government out of the way and lower the tax burden so Wisconsin business owners and factories can create 250,000 jobs and 10,000 businesses in our state by 2015,” Walker said in a February 2010 speech.

He made clear that -- just like his jobs promise -- he meant a net gain in businesses: "as we create those new jobs, we will be able to add 10,000 new businesses.”
One mention of the promises is now blocked on his campaign website.

I'd posted that link in an earlier posting:
Also, he said the state during the same period would see the creation of 10,000 new businesses.

That was on his campaign website: (word echo "to to" in the original)

Scott Walker Brown BagOne of the keys to the future of our state’s economy is setting and meeting goals. For too long, politicians and bureaucrats have taken the state’s economy for granted and delayed action until a business was on the verge of declaring bankruptcy or moving to a new state. Instead of reacting to each crisis as it comes, I will develop strategies for creating 250,000 new jobs and 10,000 new businesses by 2015.

Actually, Walker's policies de-emphasize entrepreneurship, because the WMC and GMC oligarchs hate competition, and hate having to work hard (or at all) for improving their product. They'd much rather buy politicians like the WisGOP clowns in Madison.

When you de-emphasize education and encourage a "Chamber of Commerce" mentality, you also end up with a lack of innovation. It's Milwaukee's mediocrity taken to a statewide level
