Walker views Dayton's snowbird tax as an opportunity for his state.
Thanks to Wisconsin's dismal job market, Scott Walker is in a glass house. But that isn't stopping him from throwing stones at Mark Dayton.

Today, Walker took to Twitter to lob a diss at Dayton for his proposed snowbird tax.

Here's what Walker tweeted: As we told you about last month, Dayton wants non-residents who spent more than 60 days a year in Minnesota to pay a prorated income tax. According to the AP, no other state has adopted a tax of that sort.

As Dayton told reporters in January, "One of the unfairnesses [is that] that somebody can spend six months and one day out of the state and pay no personal income taxes and come back here and take advantage of all the state has to offer for five months and 29 days."

Dayton's snowbird tax would raise about $15 million annually, but it doesn't seem to have much support in the legislature, and the governor now acknowledges it "probably isn't going anywhere," according to the AP.

Dayton hasn't yet responded to Walker's ding, but if he's looking for some material, here's a suggestion -- "Sure, Scott, Wisconsin is less taxing. But it's also less employed since you took office. #coincidence?"

He's only 184k jobs short of his promised 250k. Of course, he promised to *create* 250k new jobs -- not *steal* them from other States.

Perhaps Walker should get off Twitter and work on job creation for the people of his state.

@Onan Using correct punctuation must not be one of Governor Walker's strengths.
