WEDC Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation was to be the engine of job creation
WEDC was to be the blueprint for Neoconservative efficiency – the flagship of the new Walker reform of reforms to allow for the lofty goal of creating jobs, jobs, jobs. Infact, the WEDC is Walker. It exemplifies his vision, his arrogance, his philosophy of reform of government. A risen County Executive was arrogant enough to decide to abandon and demolish a major department of government, the 35 year old Department of Commerce, to make way for his concept of neocon reform. So it was that the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) was created in February of 2011 by the state GOP controlled Legislature and Walker. Five months later, on July 1st – the flagship of reform took over the economic development functions of the old and antiquated Department of Commerce. Since then, the timeline of crisis and confusion at WEDC reads like that of a patient in cardiac arrest. The shuffling and continuous reorganization of major players within the department occurs with such rapid frequency that it is difficult to keep track of, but to get a feeling for what failure looks like you might want to read – Wisconsin – Walker’s reform school
The WEDC is Walker
WEDC reflects all that is Walker with all the mirrors and glimmers of a man who thinks he knows better and is willing to risk his political future, his administration, and the welfare of the people of Wisconsin on his conceptual idea of government. Perhaps, that is why many people, whose principles of conservative ideals, stand with him. The only problem with this picture is that when you go for broke, you may well end up with the result you gamble with, and from all indications when looking at the WEDC’s short history, it is moving job creation, federal grant funding, and Walker over the cliff and taking all the people of Wisconsin with it.
The Undoing of Walker
As opponents of Walker’s policies protested, recalled, and looked to the John Doe investigation to bring justice to the arrogant “I know better” personality of Scott Walker, only now can they see how he was slowly building and documenting his own destruction all along and right before everyone’s eyes. For the WEDC is his baby. The baby to which he cannot deny paternity or claim he had no knowledge of. He cannot blame his WEDC for his failure of job creation since he created it. It just sits there as one of the most stunning failures in the history of Wisconsin government, and all the money in the world cannot erase the structure of failure that is falling around this would-be candidate for President of the Unite States.
