Gov. Scott Walker continues to plug away in tax breaks for Wisconsin families.  Last week, he and Assembly Republicans announced a deal for families to receive a $100 credit for each child -- and for the state sales tax to be waived the first weekend in August.  

Senate Republicans haven't gotten on board yet, and Democrats blasted the proposal, calling it an election year gimmick.  In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com about Walker's motives.
