Walker Wants Democrats Home
Wisconsin's Republican governor flew around the state yesterday, to La Crosse and other places. Walker says the state will lose out on millions that could be used to help balance the budget, if 14 Democrats do not return to Madison and vote on the budget plan by tonight. While the governor spoke to reporters inside a La Crosse airport hangar yesterday, a couple dozen union picketers were outside, hoping to speak to Walker. The governor says even if some collective bargaining rights are eliminated because of the bill, Wisconsin state workers will still have better benefits than many federal workers.
