As Scott Walker Retreats on Jobs Promises, Republican Legislature Does Nothing

Sep 11, 2011

Only One Day of Session Planned
MADISON-In the face of soaring unemployment, and unable to explain his administration’s failure on a phony campaign jobs promise, Scott Walker is sitting idly by as his Republican Legislature has only one work day planned this month after not passing a single piece of jobs legislation in 2011.

Unemployment in Wisconsin has increased under Walker, though he shockingly claimed jobs successes on “UpFront with Mike Gousha” over the weekend.
“Scott Walker has done nothing to create jobs in Wisconsin and his Republican Legislature can only be bothered to show up for work one day this month, displaying a shocking indifference to the terrible climate they have created in Wisconsin,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday. “I guess now that tax breaks for the super-rich have been made law, Scott Walker and the Republicans can take the month off.”
