I applaud the working people of Wisconsin for not sitting on their bums when they are under attack. The new Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker walked into his office with over 100-million dollars in surplus. He cut some deals with his buddies and now there is over 100-million owed by the state. He wants to take this from the public workers unions without bargaining. These unions signed legal contracts and Walker wants to break them. To do this with about 5 days notice and without coming back to the table with the unions to see what can be done to make things work has sent state senators to flee over state lines. If they aren't in the capital to vote on this, it can't be enacted. There are only 19 republicans and they need 20 people to make a quorum..
People have been marching by the 10's of thousands in freezing temperatures all over the state to protest this taking of peoples rights. The protests started on Monday and grew larger by Thursday night with no sign of going away.
The movement is growing and Ohio and Indiana are getting in on the act as those states have also elected leaders that are proposing similar legislation.
The whole thing about Wisconsin is that it didn't need to happen. They entered into the new Walker administration with a budget surplus. This is all out war against working people. Thanks Wisconsin for showing us what America looks like when we are being turned into surfs. You guys haven't given up, the rest of us should take notice.
