Quote, unquote

"The bill does not create a single job, help a single Wisconsin citizen afford health care or improve schools for a single Wisconsin child. The Legislature should spend more time trying to get jobs into our communities instead of more guns."

--Gov. Jim Doyle, vetoing concealed weapons bill.

He could make that first sentence a mantra for many of the Republican-passed bills he's vetoed, whether it's voter ID, birth control, That's what they have in common; they do nothing to solve the state's real problems.

Yet another silly comment by governor Doyle.

How many jobs were created by raising the minimum wage?

How many jobs were created by photo id for cold medicine?

Suprise liberals, there are already guns our nieghborhoods. Being allowed to carry a concealed weapon in public would not cause a flood of new guns on the street. A majority of people who would apply and recieve permits are already gun owners. It is legal to own a gun and keep it in your home. Those who currently carry guns aren't all that concerned with abiding by the law. Those who are concerned would legally apply and recieve a permit. A gun does not have the power to create criminals any more than a bank is to blame for bank robbers.

What does he mean it Will not Create any jobs? It will create plenty from what I Can See: Someone needs to come up with the software to implement the DataBase, people will be needed to run said computer system, and people will also be needed to enter the information.
How can the Bassett Hound say he is all for creating jobs, when he vetoes this?

That was pretty mild.

Well, if Doyle were serious about either of the issues he mentioned, he could sign litigation reform and lift the caps on school choice. But, as we've learned, he is not a serious man.
