Worst. Column. EVER!

By now everyone knows that Scott Walker promised as part of his campaign, that he would “create” 250,000 jobs. “get government out of the way of employers … who will then help Wisconsin create 250,000 jobs by 2015, and as we create those new jobs, we will be able to add 10,000 new businesses.” We […]
