“…Walker ignores that fact that the way he went about achieving Act 10’s initiatives are what led to the protests and the recalls. Without his actions, they wouldn’t have happened. And the Affordable Care Act was already well debated and enacted into law in June 2010, months before Walker was elected. There’s no reason he couldn’t have accounted for it when he made his pledge.
Walker can argue about those events’ impact on job growth in Wisconsin. Is it a fact? Maybe. But he’s certainly using it as an excuse.”
