Madison, Wis--Scott Walker was still touting the fact he didn't raise taxes to balance the budget.
"I am the CEO of the state of Wisconsin and I am doing a great job. People should get off my back. I made the tough choices of sticking to union workers and making sure Wisconsin's economy loses more jobs every month." Scott Walker said in a press conference on Monday.
Scott Walker is facing a recall effort from the same people he claims he helped. These people he helped don't seem to think he actually did anything more than give tax breaks to the wealthy and in the process ruin an economy that was actually doing alright under the old system. The old system that kept unemployment lower than the national average--that system.
"Sure, Wisconsin is going through a rough patch right now, but that isn't my fault. I did everything in the Republican playbook to make it look like I would create jobs. I cut taxes to the job creators. I made it easier to sell state assets for quick cash. I used my majority to stick to the poor and middle-class. What do I get in return. Some whinny liberals want to recall me." Scott Walker added.
Scott Walker is confident he will be recalled, but he is confident that the his wealthy backers can help him win another election.
"I am not the most polarizing governor in Wisconsin's history because I do what is right. I am the most polarizing governor in Wisconsin because I will take a phone call from my rich donors over actually listening to the concerns of the people that can't find jobs. Don't those unemployed know it pays to have rich friends." Scott Walker said.
With unemployment in Wisconsin going up, and Scott Walker's poll numbers going down, it does look like it will be another interesting spring in Wisconsin.
