Walker a drag on our future, keeping our kids from doing better than their parents.

Just in time for Scott Walker's attempted reelection, bad news that should add to Mary Burke's arsenal. While Republicans claim to care so much about leaving our kids a better state and lower taxes, it won't matter much if their policies also keep our kids from doing better than their parents
The Washington Post: A surprising map of mobility: "Which parts of the country do you think have done the best job ensuring that children born to working-class families do better than their parents? California, with its booming tech industry? New York, with its financial wizards? Utah, with its deep social ties and communitarian values? Try Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Meanwhile, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Mississippi do the worst job helping kids advance."-Ezra Klein
