State Democrat to businesses: "Get your ass back down South, I don't want you here"

Want to know how harsh the vilification of Wisconsin businesses is on the part of legislative Democrats?

Here is quite possibly the perfect, and not very eloquent, example.

Yep. We can still create jobs in these dire straits, in other countries.
