Poverty in Milwaukee: The Barrett/Norquist Legacy

Skip all the foofoodust from Barrett (and even Walker, if you don't like him.)

Go to these grafs:

Marc Levine, executive director of the Center for Economic Development at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, said the latest census data reflect the city's lack of job growth.

"Our analysis of employment data shows that Milwaukee has had among the worst job creation records of any big city in the U.S. for over a decade, so it is not surprising that poverty numbers have worsened, especially during the worst recession since the Great Depression," Levine said.

Ten years. Two Lefty Democrats (and Lefty Common Councils).

Yah, that worked. /sarcasm

Gotta get your talking points straight this morning, Dad29. Buy more ammo! That'll fix the poverty! Wait. What would Jesus do about that poverty?

Jesus would throw the money-changers out of the temple. He would feed the hungry and teach them to fish. He would admonish them to make good choices in their lives like, don't have children out of wedlock, don't get hooked on crack, meth or any of that other good stuff. He would admonish those who would take from one at the point of a gun to give to others that they are nothing more than common thieves.

THAT's what Jesus would do. That's what Conservatives do.
