Update: How’s that fiscal nirvana Gov. Walker?

Read it and weep, Scott Walker, you wall-eyed git:

Gov. Scott Walker has repeatedly assured Wisconsinites that his assaults on local democracy, public services, public education and collective bargaining rights would create jobs and prosperity.

In contrast, the governor has argued, the decision of Illinois officials to tackle budget challenges with fair tax policies, respect for public employees and efforts to maintain services would cause doom and gloom for that state.

So…?

The October jobs figures for the United States were just released. Illinois led the nation in job creation, adding 30,000 new jobs.

Huzzah! Good for Illinois! But what about that Randian Job Creators’ Paradise promised by wholly-owned Koch Brothers asset and Madison’s own Herbert Hoover Scott Walker?

Under Walker, Wisconsin now leads the nation in job losses.
In fact, of the states that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics described as experiencing “statistically significant unemployment changes” in October, only one actually lost jobs: Wisconsin.

Wisconsin lost 9,700 jobs in October, almost all of them in the private sector.

    You know, I think Fecal Nirvana, as a covers band, might have tried a bit harder for the witty name.
