The Walker Agenda Is Still Working! Part CCV

In just a couple of weeks, Fitzwalkerstan will mark the third anniversary of Scott Walker's inauguration.  According to Walker's campaign promise, we should have seen an increase of 187,500 jobs.  Instead, we have seen an increase of about a third of that.  And of that measly amount of jobs, half of them should be accredited to Governor Jim Doyle.

But even the small number of jobs Walker did create is a fleeting thing, as we continue to lead the nation in jobs lost:
The number of people filing new jobless claims across the country skyrocketed by 68,000 to 368,000, with the state of Wisconsin leading the way, according to a weekly report from the U.S. Department of Labor.

Wisconsin posted the largest increase in new claims with 4,420. Other states reporting large increases in new claims include: Ohio (2,597), Kentucky (1,538), Massachusetts (1,129) and New Jersey (1,124).
Please note that Walker's failure is of such epic proportions that Wisconsin's new unemployment claims exceed that of the second and third worst states combined. Walker's ineptitude is beyond description.

Now we know why the Teapublicans made getting unemployment compensation so much harder.  Even they knew that they were going to fail in a big way.
