Wisconsin Working

After losing more than 133,000 jobs and 27,000 businesses during my predecessor's last term, Wisconsin has added more than 100,000 jobs and 13,000 new businesses - that's a real shift. The unemployment rate that was 9.2 percent just four years ago is now 6.2 percent. Wisconsin is working again, but there is more work still to be done.

As I travel the state each week, I don't hear many people telling me that they send too little money to Madison. They don't tell me their taxes are too low or even that they are just about right. People around the state tell me the way to fuel the economic recovery is to put more money in the hands of the hard-working taxpayers, so consumers and employers can do more to stimulate the economy.

We have a budget surplus of more than $911 million, driven by a growing economy and good fiscal management. My plan for that money - which we're calling the Blueprint for Prosperity - will help move Wisconsin forward.
