Republican Economic Polices Suck


By the way, I got something wrong... When I said "Michigan didn't have a hug bidget deficit last year, "that wasn't quite right. We actual had a rather large budget SURPLUS. So I ask again: WHY did this have to happen?!

And here is the KOS Article I mentioned: Minnesota Liberalism Trounces Wisconsin Conservatism
Well worth the read. Check it out. (Especially if you don't want to bother watching the video. LOL)

  1. Funny how you can use stats to show whatever you want. From the article, you referenced, it is shown that Minn health care coverage was "crushed" by Wis health care coverage. Then they say the facts: Minn 5% uninsured while Wis uninsured 6%. Both down from 10%. Yeah, that sure is a "crush".
    Both Minn and Wis remain among the tops in school age mathematics. With Wis continuing to raise their levels (it's hard to continue climbing when you're already at the top). Too bad that article could bring no proof of the statements they made. Is that the usual way KOS work's their claims? They make a claim and expect all to believe them?

  2. Read it again:

    "In rejecting Obamacare (ACA), Wisconsin allowed Minnesota to crush Wisconsin on the issue of healthcare, too. MN recently reduced its uninsured to 5 percent down from 10 percent according to a Kaiser report, while Wisconsin is stuck at 9.75 percent (Wisconsin's uninsured has dropped 1.89 percent but is mainly due to provisions in the ACA, such as mandated coverage to young adults under the age of 26)."

    Wisconsin is stuck at 9.75 percent, according to the report cited.

    You were perhaps looking at their unemployment rates? (Where MN's is 1.3% lower?)

    You know what? I don't really care. You didn't read the article, or you didn't read it very carefully, and I doubt you listened to the video. So I don't really care what you did, or what you think.

    And if YOU think "you can use stats to show whatever you want," why don't you try using some to show me that Scott Walker is anything other than a Teabagging Right-Wing Douchebag. You got any stats for THAT?

    1. There was no "report cited". They mentioned a generic healthcare provider with no links or citations. Hell, I can do what they did: "according to a Blue-Cross report Wisconsin health care costs dropped 25% in just the last year, while Minnesota's has risen 15% in the same time frame.". There's some "stats" for you. Made up ... just like the "report" from "kaiser".

      Oh, and I see why you think he is a "Teabagging Right-Wing Douchebag", he supports good American Christian values. And, everyone knows those values are completely opposite of what sex-loving liberals admire the most: free sex without personal responsibility or accountability. He is also anti-union (smart guy) and refused money that would have created a huge tax burden on the state of Wisconsin (high speed rail system). Too bad the democratic governor of California isn't that smart. He is choosing to waste taxpayer money to build one of those cash cows. But, hey, Republican economic policies suck. Yeah, they do ... especially to the democrat who wants the government to provide everything to them for free.
      So, I totally understand your feelings towards a smart Republican governor who is saving his state money over democratic ones who are costing their states money.

    2. Still waiting for the citation for that "report". None? Go figure. Making shit up is so much easier, and, of course, believable for the liberal.

    3. Oh, I found the report. In several different place I might add. Wasn't that hard, really. And the 9.75% is, in fact, correct and quite easy to verify. The author DID get the other number wrong, however: It was not 5% as he reported, but rather 6.(something)%, as I recall. The point stands, however, albeit 1.(something)% less so than before.

      AND? (Did you have anything else?)

      YOU, OTOH, actually did just made shit up. There was no mistake, nothing out of context, or deceptively scaled, you just plain MADE IT UP. Which is no surprise. Fox does this all the time. So does Limbaugh. If you have any ACTUAL data to show me how "smart" WI Gov. Walker is, I'd certainly love to see it. Though... I'd prefer ACTUAL data, as opposed to shit you just make up. (You know, seeing as how I WAS able to actually fact-check MY source.)

      See if you can get around that fact that his State's deficit this year is about a Billion dollars higher than projected.

      Lots of luck.

    5. So, you say you could find the report (yet bring no verification of that), then you admit that the author made shit up while using the report (the report you cannot seem to provide proof of), then you whine that I do the same.

      "The point stands, however, albeit 1.(something)% less so than before."

      Even you math is wrong. The difference would be 20%. Since 1% change going from 5% to 6% would be a 20% difference, not a 1% difference.

      "YOU, OTOH, actually did just made shit up. "

      Yes, I know. I told you that when I did it. You still have not brought proof of the report cited. I am bringing actual data (see below) while what you bring (without proof) is using WRONG data and you find that acceptable. Then you whine about me making shit up.

      I notice Wisconsin's deficit is about half of what Minnesota's is. Notice how I bring a link to what I say. You do nothing like that. Where is your link that shows the "Billion dollars higher" statement to be true? Or, OTOH, are you just making shit up?
