Comment on Unemployment
February 01, 2012 | 07:37 PM

It is amazing how some of these guys spin things. Our Senator is claiming success when the state's unemployment went down .4 percent over the last year. The national rate went down .9%, TWICE that in WI. States like MI and FL have had their rates improve almost 2%. Funny when these guys give our president grief for not doing a good job and our governor is doing worse.

On the school tax subject, of course taxes will go down when property values have tanked. Do our GOP elected officials want to emulate states with really low property taxes and poor schools? Wiping out the power of unions will improve school districts bottom line but will kill education in the long run.
