Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell

Gov. Walker's war on public ed

John Nichols, writing in The Nation, describes the massive resistance movement growing in opposition to Wisconsin Gov. Walker's assault on collective bargaining rights and on public education.
Yet Walker refuses to compromise. So beholden is he to political paymasters such as the Koch brothers and the De Vos family, which has steered millions of dollars into the state to promote his extreme proposals to replace on of the nation’s strongest public education systems with voucher programs and privatization schemes, that the governor continues to pressure his legislative allies to enact a biennial budget that slashes spending for education and local services.
