Christian73 saidSeems eliminating collective bargaining, giving tax breaks to corporations and selling the energy sector to the Koch brothers isn't going to help Wisconsin very much.
A broader comparison would be to compare red state versus blue state. It's incredible irrespective of where you stand on the ideological line how many jobs have been created in Texas and Washington DC versus the rest of the country.
As far as actual growth goes it looks like the top performers have hit 1%. I wouldn't call that "incredible" but less sucky. Texas has been helped by the large population growth we have had here so it doesn't surprise me to see it at the top of the list. Sadly it has done nothing to bridge the budget short fall here which is one of the worst in the country.
P.S. - I think this whole red state/blue state is a crock of crap cooked up by a very lazy media. Most states have a fairly divided electorate and painting the state of the color of the winner is a misrepresentation and short sighted.
