Comparison of economic slowdown makes it easier to see that we're doing worse under Gov. WalkerHere's an easy way to describe Scott Walker's performance on job creation in the private sector...
Pretend that we were traveling between Madison and Milwaukee on I-94. In 2010, when Gov. Jim Doyle was leaving office and Scott Walker was just about to be sworn in, let's say that we were traveling at about 60 miles per hour. That's fast, probably not as fast as we'd have liked to have gone, but still a decent pace.
Two years later, in September of 2012, we've decided to drive back to Madison from Milwaukee -- but this time, instead of driving the "Doyle car" on jobs, we're in the "Walker car" on jobs. And how fast would that car be going?
It'd be traveling about 36 miles per hour on the interstate.
Which, as anyone can tell you, you don't want to be doing, especially around the Marquette Interchange.
