Every Republican Governor Elected in 2010 Reduced Unemployment

Gov. Scott Walker is a prime example of the success derived from GOP policies

While liberals remain aloof to our economic recession in Washington, every Republican governor elected in 2010 has reduced unemployment and spurred an economic recovery at a rate faster than the national average in their respective states.  Tony Lee of Breitbart.com stated that “the average drop in the unemployment rate in these states was 1.35%, compared to the national decline of .9%, which means, according to the analysis, that the job market in these Republican states is improving 50% faster than the national rate.”

According to Kate Hicks of Townhall.com, that’s seventeen states where the model of cutting taxes, spending, and reducing the size of goverment has proven to be an effective formula in stimulating economic growth.  Again, that’s seventeen examples that disproves Mr. Obama’s agenda and that of the institutional left.

Here are some examples of GOP executive success courtesy of Robert Elliott at Examiner.com:

 

Kansas – 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%

Maine – 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Michigan – 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%

New Mexico – 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%

Oklahoma – 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%

Pennsylvania – 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Tennessee – 9.5% to 7.9% = a decline of 1.6%

Wisconsin – 7.7% to 6.8% = a decline of 0.9%

Wyoming – 6.3% to 5.2% = a decline of 1.1%

Alabama – 9.3% to 7.4% = a decline of 1.9%

Georgia – 10.1% to 8.9% = a decline of 1.2%

One side has policies that are proven to reduce unemployment.  The other side has overseen an unemployment rate remain above 8% for the past 40 months. Is this really a choice?
