Letter: Many suffer from recall tunnel visionI am amazed by the singular focus of people as to the recall of Scott Walker and others.

I am amazed by the singular focus of people as to the recall of Scott Walker and others.
They complain about the cost of the recall. Yet you hear no complaints about the phony Democrats (Republicans running as Democrats to force a primary). This is a cost in the recall primary.
I hear no complaints about the pay raise Scott Walker took when most others are receiving pay cuts. I hear no complaints about the $2 billion break Scott Walker gave the corporations and the rich.
This was disguised as a way to create jobs. What jobs?
Wisconsin has led the nation in jobs lost. Most of this $2 billion has left the state.
To cover the loss of this revenue, Scott Walker cut $1.6 billion from public education funding and the so-called tools he gave the schools to use did not cover the amount he cut from the schools.
Scott Walker would not even go along with a requirement that the corporations would have to create just one job to receive these breaks.
And — on the subject of creating jobs through tax breaks — what proof is there that a corporation or business will create a job because of a tax break?
No one can afford to purchase the products or services created by the new employee. It is not good business sense to create a products or services that there is no demand for?
In the end, Scott Walker has cost this state a whole lot more (more than 200 times) than the cost of the recall election.
This is tunnel vision, plain and simple. They have tunnel vision to justify their argument against recalling Scott Walker.
