Everyone remembers that the key promise in Scott Walker's campaign was - JOBS!
One of the key cogs to this promise was ending the publicly accountable Commerce Department for Wisconsin Economic Development Committee. A private - Government crony partnership that was going to help him create jobs.
They both failed miserably!
We have written about the failings of WEDC extensively, here at CogDis, but thanks to our friends at One Wisconsin Now, we find out even more.
The Key Takeway: Sixty percent of WEDC money (about $600 million of $1 billion given out) has gone to Walker/RGA donors.
Just to be clear, that is $1,000,000,000 of Wisconsin taxpayer money that is being funneled back to Scott Walker's donors, with no expectation of results!
That is the kind of fiscal conservatism we have had for four years, it is time for something better!
