Our Ms. Burke buys her jobs plan off the resale rack
(page 1 of 2)
This is a game changer. Mary Burke plagiarized her jobs plan because she has none of her own. Even Dan Bice of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel can’t ignore the story, “Burke jobs plan copied portions of proposals from other Democrats.”
Given that Burke is hammering incumbent Scott Walker for falling short on his over-ambitious jobs creation pledge, this goes to the heart of her supposed appeal.
It was the on-line BuzzFeed News that got the scoop:
Large portions of Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke’s jobs plan for Wisconsin appear to be copied directly from the plans of three Democratic candidates who ran for governor in previous election cycles.
Burke’s economic plan “Invest for Success” copies nearly-verbatim sections from the jobs plans of Ward Cammack, who ran for Tennessee governor in 2009 before withdrawing from the race, a 2008 plan from Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, and John Gregg who ran for governor of Indiana in 2012 and lost to Mike Pence.
Gives new meaning to the term “group plan,” doesn’t it? The Burke jobs plan is a Brobdingnagian 49 pages! Anyone who writes a 49-page plan on one topic needs to get his/her/their nose off the tarmac and see the airport. Was Our Ms. Burke trying to emulate the ObamaCare bill? Yeah, I got a jobs plan; dare you to read it all! (You are getting sleepy, very sleepy.)
