Business Survey Touted By Walker Includes Bad News For Wisconsin

[updated 1:20 p.m.] Where up is actually down:

Gov. Walker's office issued a release Tuesday touting a CNBC business survey because it showed a small yearly net gain for Wisconsin when compared to other states, but the survey details actually indicate declines for Wisconsin in four of ten measures studied, including these key indicators:

* Quality of Life
* Technology & Innovation
* Business Friendliness
* Access to Capital
In the survey, bordering state Minnesota ranks 6th - - seems we're constantly in Minnesota's dust - - while Iowa ranks 12th to our 17th.

Makes you wonder if the Governor's staff vets what it references in promotional materials?

What you complain about will be flushed down the memory hole by journal communications.

And your BFF, milwaukee journal sentinel, will do more to do this across the state than even the racist ranters at wtmj-am.

I don't care what CEOs say, I care about what they do. And what they're doing is not hiring people in Wisconsin.
