Vindictive GOP aimed budget cuts at Madison, where WI job growth is centered

Only vindictive partisan ideologues like Walker and his GOP know-nothing caucus would slash funds, and discourage recruitment and retention at the state's largest job-generating academic institution in Madison - - where people by the thousands have chosen to add jobs and expand high-wage payrolls, a new study finds:
Between 2008 and 2018, Madison added 54,000 jobs overall, or about 16% growth, according to the nonpartisan Wisconsin Policy Forum. 
The report reflects a shift in Madison and across the state toward jobs with higher wages and underscores the effect Madison’s highly educated workforce has on attracting job growth.
Of course, 'vindictive ideologues' is the Wisconsin GOP go-to-bumper sticker these days:

GOP Senators leave Wisconsin homeless vets, kids out in the cold

A year after GOP loses statewide, its legislative leaders enjoy out-sized powers

Vos can't fix his insult to disabled colleague without fresh insult

GOP leader spent mere seconds killing gun safety measures

WI GOP legislators blocking Evers' lead abatement plan

WI GOP leaders lose lawsuit, stick taxpayers with $200,000 tab
