Scott Walker

Lagged

Under GOP control, WI lagged the nation in nearly every economic metric… Weak job growth, massive budget shortfalls, record debt (plus pollution & corruption). Then, in an act of sad desperation, Walker fell for the biggest scam in American history: Foxconn. But you do you. https://t.co/LNmqfmr2m3 — Bluepool #IVoted ALL Dem (@BadgerStew) October 26, 2020…

Walker…

scoop: Former Wisconsin governor @ScottWalker is working closely with @Mike_Pence on debate prep and serving as the foil/Harris stand-in during private prep sessions, per 2 people familiar with the mtgs. In 2016, Walker served as Pence's Kaine stand-in.https://t.co/TUcWfCFoVR — Robert Costa (@costareports) September 17, 2020              

Why not lead by example?

I think it would be a great example of leadership if Scott Walker signed a legally binding document to refuse his upcoming $8k/month taxpayer-funded pension. Maybe Foxconn will pay it. https://t.co/HM962E8UG7 — Bluepool (Voting for Biden) (@BadgerStew) April 30, 2020 .            

Bad Habit

Wisconsin media just can't quit Walker. https://t.co/uqvKyMGIlk — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) April 27, 2020          

Wait, Walker has a podcast?

Is @ScottWalker also calling for the Smithsonian to give back millions in stimulus $? (Trump appointed you to Smithsonian board, which, like the Kennedy Center, is also a government institution that depends paying-customers for their budget–and was hit hard by virus. https://t.co/WpP0ikTBjM — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) April 8, 2020 .        

Weren’t as good  

I told you to look out for the new Wisconsin jobs report today, coming on the heels of the bad performance in the “gold standard” Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages(QCEW) which I discussed in this post.

That’s because the January report would feature revisions based on that QCEW report. And sure enough, that Wisconsin jobs report came out today with sizable downgrades in job growth.

Revisions from previously-reported Dec 2018 Wis jobs figures 
All jobs -17,100
Private sector jobs -13,400
Manufacturing -12,900

Via Jake’s Wisconsin Funhouse: As predicted, Walker job growth and total people working weren’t as good as the year said
