The Rio Grande Foundation is part of the State Policy Network, a 50 state network of free market policy think tanks. These organizations are providing the ideas that are fueling conservative majorities in the various states to reform education, tax, spending, and labor policies in a more market-based direction.

Obviously, we disagree with the story in its view that our efforts are undermining the middle class. It is government policies that, more than anything, are preserving benefits for the elites and government workers while destroying our economy, but Schultz is right in touting our effectiveness.
