      Wisconsin has only gained about 15k jobs since walker started.  All the States surrounding us are gaining at much, much faster rates.  The unemployment rate is misleading because the bls downgraded the size of Wisconsin's labor pool, making the rate look better.  Remember, walker promised 250k new jobs.  We are not even close to that pace.  Your post does support my original point though.
