Washington Can LEARN From Wisconsin

And cut taxes!!!

Illinois taxes are TOO DAMN HIGH for business.

Illinois recently got a humiliating rejection notice from Foxconn, the Taiwanese tech giant. Foxconn picked Wisconsin over struggling Illinois and other states for the proposed site of a $10 billion LCD panel factory that will employ up to 13,000 people. These mega-projects don't happen every day, so Foxconn's decision hurts because job growth is the only way to solve Illinois' fiscal crisis: More jobs means more tax revenue.

From your own link:
"The final reason Foxconn picked Wisconsin over Illinois is the difference-maker: government cooperation and competence. The Journal Sentinel wrote that Gou believed "the responsiveness of the public and private partners in Wisconsin far exceeded those of other states." Gou singled out the cooperation of Gov. Scott Walker, U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and local business groups: "These key people pushed very hard."

Perhaps you might actually read and comprehend your own data before cherry picking a line that agrees with your pre-conceived viewpoint.
