Dear Editor: Regardless of my political beliefs I am always amazed at the temerity of our politicians. The Wisconsin State Journal headline on March 29 trumpets our failure in job creation. Wisconsin is 44th in the nation. We are hovering just above the bottom. And when confronted, the politicians immediately speak to the governor seeking his next job opportunity or the increase in state revenues. It gets old after a while. The obfuscation of issues and issue re-direction is all we get.
The problem is clear. We need more job creation. While the politicians are busy avoiding telling us how they will improve job growth statewide, they immediately direct the listener or reader to the platitudes of what they are either doing right or what they dislike about the group in power. They completely avoid/sidestep the challenging issues and blow smoke. The body politic — you — should remember this when you get into the voting booth for the next round. Get rid of those politicians from both sides who not only avoid answering the tough questions and fixing problems but direct the voter to the points they want to make — not ours!
