This is pretty much all of Laura Conaway's brilliant post over at the Maddow Blog, and I cannot improve upon it at all. In fact, I cannot understand how it is that the Republican Party can continue to embrace this idea that balanced budgets must be achieved at all costs.
In Wisconsin, this mentality has failed. Cutting budgets, destroying public sector unions, and austerity are failed policies. Jobs are actually going in the wrong direction in Wisconsin right now; times are tough and getting tougher.
I guess it must be time to get rid of Scott Walker and hope that someone can turn things around.
