Walker has Wisconsin on road to ruin

This blog has focused on Scott Walker's failure to run the state like a government or a business - - and showed that he led the move to overspend on freeway expansion without a financing plan in hand to pay for it - - but let's have the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram detail Walker's specific failing to fix the state's roads:
With 42 percent of its roads deemed in poor or mediocre condition, Wisconsin’s overall road pavement quality ranked the worst in the Midwest and 49th among the 50 states in 2016, according to annual rankings by U.S. News & World Report... 
A recent survey of Wisconsin counties by the highway association revealed that over the past five years highways are being rebuilt at a rate that would require nearly a 200-year life cycle, or four to five times longer than can reasonably be expected.
