"Governing for the next generation...

... not the next election." (unlike some other people we know)

One of the under-reported elements of the electoral tsunami of the 2010 mid-terms (What? Too soon?) was the fact that 680 seats changed hands from (D) to (R) at the state level. And what this has resulted in, in Wisconsin's case at least, is turning a $3.6 billion deficit into a $300 million surplus and 9,500 new jobs created in June alone which accounted for over half of all the new jobs created in the entire nation.

Alexis Garcia of PJTV has a chat with Rebecca Kleefisch, the Lt. Governor of Wisconsin on Wisky's public employee union battles and its amazing turnaround in this near-double-dip economy.
