Wisconsin has a Republican governor, a Republican majority in the state Senate, and a Republican majority in the state Assembly, not to mention a conservative stronghold in the State Supreme Court. Yet, the GOP is claiming they are powerless to pass any key job creation legislation this session:

Gov. Scott Walker and his fellow Republicans who control the Legislature touted the recent three-week floor period as a jobs session. But much of the focus was on other issues, such as where to allow guns in the Capitol and letting schools teach abstinence-only sex education courses.

But even the right wing IS claiming they’re creating jobs, they’re not. After handing out $2.3 billion in tax breaks to corporations and the rich, still unemployment increased under their watch.
