I just recently learned that my good friend's mother is being laid off because of the red tape created by Obamacare. I could not believe that in the midst of an economy that is starving for job creation, our president decided to sign legislation that put those necessary jobs at risk. More red tape and bureaucracy are the last things our federal government need right now, but the president refuses to change this improper course.
Meanwhile, our governor is focused on job deregulation and the elimination of red tape in order to promote job creation and allow businesses to run smoother in our state. Workforce development has also been extremely successful with the UW FlexOption for adult students, job training and networking that link employers to job seekers, and its monitoring of Wisconsin's industries that are in need of workers in real time. The focus is completely where it needs to be: jobs.
