What do Maine, Wisconsin, and Wyoming all have in common? They are the only states to have negative job growth in the last year–according to a new report by the Pew Charitable Trusts–and they’re all governed by Republicans. With Republican governors like Maine Gov. Paul LePage threatening to shut down his state if he doesn’t get tax cuts for the wealthy and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker focusing his attention on an intrusive forced ultrasounds bill, it’s no wonder these states are underperforming their peers. While Democratic governors are focusing on job growth, it seems that Republicans just haven’t gotten the memo.
