If you are experiencing the effects of unemployment in your state, take a look at the map above and ask your governor where are the jobs? Since the November 2010 election, there are currently 29 Republicans, 20 Democrats, and 1 Independent holding the office of governor in the states.
3 Chics wants to keep this simple.
RED STATES =REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS
BLUE STATES= DEMOCRATIC GOVERNORS
The current jobs numbers and unemployment rate reflects the onslaught of Republican governors gutting of jobs, union-collective bargaining rights, education, and refusing stimulus funds to rebuild infrastructure, etc. But you’re not going to hear the MAINSTREAM MEDIA address this as the cause of joblessness and unemployment. Their corporate masters have handed them the script to project gloom, doom, and blame on those socialist Democrats and their party leader President Obama.
Ask your elected state GOVERNORS, Republican or Democrat where they stand on the following issues:
3. SOCIAL SECURITY
5. COLLECTIVE BARGAINING & UNION RIGHTS
How are you faring in these areas, folks?
And just in case you’re not 100% convinced of the Republican’s chicanery, shenanigans, and sheer fuckery, Michele Bachmann is telling you straight up how they plan to win the election, so they can further gut and destroy middle class & poor Americans, while protecting the rich oil conglomerates and corporations through subsidies and tax cuts.
We’ve already gotten an earful from citizens in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, New Jersey, Florida, and now with Minnesota being the first state to shut down its government due to a GOP majority legislature.
Let’s keep this issue mainstream:

Update from Steve Benen’s blog.
Here’s a chart showing private-sector job creation in the latter half of 2010, when stimulus money was still being spent, and when Democrats enjoyed the congressional majority.
And here’s a chart showing private-sector job creation so far in 2011, after stimulus spending largely ended, Republicans took control of the U.S. House and most of the nation’s gubernatorial offices, and the national discourse pivoted from jobs to the deficit and debt.
