It didn't take Vos and Fitzgerald long to try and blame their, and Walker's mess on Evers.

“In a statement released Wednesday, Vos and state Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, wrote:

“We don’t blame Foxconn for altering plans in an ever-changing technology business. It’s also not surprising Foxconn would rethink building a manufacturing plant in Wisconsin under the Evers Administration. The company is reacting to the wave of economic uncertainty that the new governor has brought with his administration. Governor Evers has an anti-jobs agenda and pledged to do away with a successful business incentive for manufacturing and agriculture.”

1. Yep.

They are who we thought they were. Winning more elections is the only option to mute the excuses and bad policy.

6. Democrats respond




Democrats respond

Some Democrats have blasted Republicans for their response to the Foxconn plan changes.

Assembly Minority Leader Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, tweeted, “There is nothing more pathetic than legislative leaders responsible for selling taxpayers a bag of coal evading even a whiff of any responsibility and accountability. You own this and owe taxpayers answers.”

“Today’s announcement is the consequence of rushed policy-making and politically driven legislation,” Hintz said in a statement. “We were promised a game-changing economic opportunity for our state. And now, it appears Foxconn is living up to their failed track record in the U.S. — leaving another state and community high and dry.”

Former Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who helped bring Foxconn to Wisconsin, tweeted, “Foxconn earns state tax credits based on actual investment and job creation. No jobs/investment? No credits. Period.”

U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wisconsin, rebutted Walker on Twitter saying, “So you’re admitting that you dragged Wisconsin through a senseless PR stunt to help your re-election campaign? Got it. Glad you’re finally on board with recognizing that #Foxconn was never going to live up to its promises on job creation and that you sold out the state.”.........https://journaltimes.com/news/local/vos-fitzgerald-point-finger-at-evers-for-foxconn-changes/article_61e3bc41-1c16-5fb5-a46a-52caca7908c7.html
