Wisconsin Lawmakers Refuse to Come to Work

The governor of Wisconsin unveiled his budget Tuesday, saying it will work if his controversial budget repair bill is passed.

Governor Scott Walker's budget cuts $1.5 billion in public school and local government aid but it avoids tax or fee increases. Still, opponents say it's damaging to the state.

Walker's bill would strip most public employees of their collective bargaining rights, but it can't pass until senate democrats return to work.

He warned of dire consequences if they don't come back, saying schools face massive teacher lay-offs.

    Typical democrat. When the going gets tough, they can't be found. They always expect others to give more, but never will they be willing to do the same. Everything was fine when a healthcare bill was shoved down our throat. But the Republicans didn't run. Also compare the union thugs and Tea Party people. Lots of evidence on union thug violence and lots of false accusations of Tea Party violence, but not one bit of evidence. God help us all.

    What's the difference. There will be massive layoffs anyway. Wisconsin is doomed.
