Scott Walker. Delusional.

Koch whore Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today. He just made a puzzling comment:
Instead of putting my name up on the podium, I put up a sign that said “Wisconsin’s open for business.”
(There's a sign just crying out to be stolen.)

We don't understand why Walker would make such a claim. We thought his agenda is to open Wisconsin for predatory corporations to feast on the decaying systems created for the middle class.

Walker's budget, after all, costs Wisconsin jobs. Reported the State Journal in March,
Gov. Scott Walker's plans to balance the state budget by cutting spending and public workers' take-home pay will slow the state's economic recovery, according to projections by a UW-Madison economist.
An estimated 21,843 jobs will be lost over the next year or two as public agencies and workers are able to spend less in their communities, said Steven Deller, a professor of applied economics who studied the ripple effects of Walker's budget-repair bill and two-year budget proposal.
And he refused $810 million in federal money that would have created thousands of jobs.

Maybe that wouldn't fit on a sign.

Meanwhile, you can complain to CNBC for allowing Walker to appear on their morning show over the weekend to tell more lies.  Fill out the form here.
