Wisconsin lost more than 6,000 private sector jobs in April

Facing a recall election – Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is dealing with more economic bad news. According to a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wisconsin lost more than 6,000 private sector jobs in April. That adds to the total number of jobs lost in Wisconsin under Scott Walker’s watch – making Wisconsin the national leader in job losses.

These latest numbers shouldn’t bode well for Walker as he fights for his job in a recall election next month. Then again – over $25 million in out-of-state cash from Wall Street banksters and Texas oil barons might be just enough to distract voters and gloss over Walker’s destructive economic policies.

We could be where Iceland is now had we voted in Chuck Baldwin and he went forth with the End the FED Bill and put the FED out of commission.

Ah yes... going back to 2008 and skewing the timeline into a Constitution Party tangent....

Where America would be in the 4th year of a Baldwin Presidency ?
