Let’s Have a War!

Lie after lie…. time after time….

From Patch: https://patch.com/wisconsin/mountpleasant/wisconsin-overpaid-foxconn-deal-washington-post-says

Officials in Wisconsin say they had to spend big in order to fend off six other states. The result? They say that Foxconn will build a $10 billion electronics plant in Mount Pleasant that would generate 22,000 indirect jobs and 13,000 factory jobs that will average nearly $54,000 a year in salary.

“13,000 good-paying, family-supporting jobs. That’s just the start and up to 22,000 jobs that are either induced or indirect because of it. All of you in this area, this region know, have heard the stories. All the people say, ‘I’m going to start to do business over there. I’m going to open a restaurant over there. I’m going to open a hotel over there. I’m going to build a new home over there,” Walker said during the incentive package signing ceremony.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) was also effusive of his praise for what Foxconn could do to transform Wisconsin’s economy.

“We’re going to look back at this day, at this moment, in the future and see that this was a very important turning point for southeastern Wisconsin,” he said.

But that number pales in comparison when Amazon said in mid-November that New York, Virginia and Tennessee will split 55,000 jobs with average salaries of $150,000.

Walker Out, Evers In … and what it means for Foxconn deal

Fueled by a resurgent Democratic base, Tony Evers defeated Gov. Scott Walker, denying the Republican incumbent a third term in office. Yet Evers unexpected victory over Walker could have a ripple effect on Walker’s biggest deal: the approximately $2.85 billion financial incentive package to lure the electronics manufacturer to Racine County.

Evers has implied that Foxconn – and the resulting financial incentive package are here to stay, though he said there could be some wiggle room when it came to negotiations.

According to a Milwaukee Biz Times article, Evers said that he would look at renegotiating parts of the contract with Foxconn with an eye on fortifying the state’s position on wages, Milwaukee-area hiring, public transportation and the plant’s energy efficiency. He said he would do so by using local transportation projects as negotiating leverage against Foxconn.

“I would really focus on compelling them to be good corporate citizens,” he said. “I don’t believe they want to be viewed as bad actors,” he said.

But shortly afterward, Evers ratcheted up his rhetoric in the Biz Times, indicating a much stronger stance than before.

“That’s a lousy investment,” Evers said in the Biz Times of Wisconsin’s $2.85 billion incentive package that Walker’s administration passed in November 2017. “Foxconn has already backtracked on several of its promises and is not being held accountable by Walker. When I’m governor, we’ll hold Foxconn’s feet to the fire and make sure that Wisconsin is getting the best return on investment possible.”

Evers has also gone public with his intention to revise air pollution regulations around the plant. “I’ve had many scientists look at that approval process and they’ve found many flaws with that decision made by the Department of Natural Resources,”Evers told the Wisconsin State Journal during the campaign. “So I would take that information and the approval and say, ‘How can we get from here to here?'”

Evers has gone on record saying that he favors disbanding the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation – another one of Walker’s signature economic development projects.

Lyrics:

There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many [Repeat: x2]
Let’s have a war
So you can go and die!
Let’s have a war!
We could all use the money!
Let’s have a war!
We need the space!
Let’s have a war!
Clean out this place!
It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many [Repeat: x2]
Let’s have a war!
Jack up the Dow Jones!
Let’s have a war!
It can start in New Jersey!
Let’s have a war!
Blame it on the middle-class!
Let’s have a war!
We’re like rats in a cage!
It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!
There’s so many of us
There’s so
