I’m beginning to wonder if Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature have forgotten that they promised to create jobs, not send them fleeing the state…
Over the objections of Gov. Scott Walker’s administration, a key legislative committee voted Wednesday against building a new train maintenance base – a decision that officials warned could mean mothballing two brand-new trains and walking away from the $71.8 million already invested in them.
The Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee voted, 12-4, along party lines not to borrow $2.5 million to continue planning a $55 million to $63 million permanent maintenance base in Milwaukee.
Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature are starting to remind me of the gang that couldn’t shoot straight when it comes to job creation, because they just keep shooting themselves in their collective feet.
