Arizona Voters Approve Sales Tax for Education!

A referendum to increase the sales tax by 1 cent, with 2/3 of the revenue designated for education passed in Arizona yesterday, with a stunning 64% of the popular vote.

If conservative Arizona can do this, why can’t we even get Penny for Kids introduced in Wisconsin?  Sign the Penny for Kids petition and drop your legislator a line asking them that question.
