Another Right Wing Meme Disproved

Charlie Sykes, Patrick McIlheran, and the entire echo chamber of the right wing tells us that people are leaving Wisconsin in droves due to the high taxes, business unfriendly regulations, etc., etc., etc.

Yeah, things must be real bad here:

Wisconsin's population has grown to more than 5.65 million, according to new state-by-state estimates for 2009 released Wednesday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The state’s population grew 0.5 percent, adding more than 27,000 residents, between July 1, 2008, and July 1, 2009, the bureau reported. Its population is now 5,654,774, up from 5,627,610 in 2008 and 5,601,571 in 2007.
