Walker Executes Grover's Plan

Walker is executing Grover Norquist's plan perfectly. Refuse revenue increases (except for credit card bonding), then claim we have no money to pay for roads, so they have to cut the elite UW System to pay for roads that everyone uses. And, far too many people in Wisconsin eat up the false choice and pick roads over the UW System. Ignoring, of course, the enormous economic engine that is the UW System. Walker will apply this plan to a number of other state supported programs: Do you want roads, or do you want X? So, he and Vos actually want the public to get worked up over road problems, providing them the ready excuse to cut state funding for many other programs.

Gov. Grover Norquist of Wisconsin

Karl nailed it!

Excellent article by the Isthmus by the way except for leaving out that important fact. Walker's pledge is to Grover Norquist, not to the people of Wisconsin. Follow that trail to find out what's in store for Wisconsin. Or elect a new governor in 2018.
