As the economy continues to fail after Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican majority gave $2.3 billion in new tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy, Rep. Andre Jacque has turned his focus to an extreme social agenda that actually will do more to lose good-paying jobs.

In a column in the Wisconsin State Journal today, Rep. Jacque makes the case for a couple of anti-abortion bills stewing in the Capitol. As reasonable and “ethical” as he tries to come across, it’s no small secret that the Fox Valley Republican is an anti-choice extremist, even opposing the morning after pill, as we point out in our Meet the Majority profile.

Of course, non-job creating legislation is the last thing our state needs, and Rep. Jacque’s focus on an extreme social agenda is a slippery slope Wisconsin doesn’t need to go down.
