As Wisconsin's Economy Remains Stalled, We Remember...

The economic prediction of state legislator Robin Vos, now Assembly Speaker, who spoke with certainty in April 2012 about the coming boom in Wisconsin once Scott Walker nailed down the recall win:

Once June 5 hits and Gov. Scott Walker is securely re-elected, “our economy is going to take off like a rocket,” state Rep. Robin Vos, R-Rochester, said Monday during a meeting with The Journal Times Editorial Board.
So, why does Forbes rank Wisconsin 41st for business?

Why is Walker about a third of the way towards his 250,000 new-jobs creating goal after nearly three years in office?

And what kind of rocket was that, again?
Such as the falling rocket-propelled arrows stuck in Hatay

If anybody really cares what Robin Vos thinks except himself and his girlfriend..... he's no "Rocket Scientist." But as long as he's in a leadership position he'll remain a bully because that's what little people do when they get just a wee bit of power......they abuse it!

Actually, it's easier to argue that Walker surviving the recall HURT Wisconsin job growth. Look a the numbers Walker's own administration released 2 weeks for the "most accurate" QCEW survey.

Change in jobs 12 months BEFORE recall- +37,959
Change in jobs 12 months AFTER recall- +23,968 (down 37%)

Looks like the recall election sure made jobs take off...for other states.
