is preparing for large crowds next week as the Legislature begins the process of approving the governor’s budget

Wisconsin is preparing for new protests next week as the Legislature begins the process of approving the governor’s budget.

The Republicans here must stay the course, remembering always that they won the election handily and still represent the majority.

An update on Wisconsin

An update on Wisconsin: Legislature passes union bargaining restrictions, violent protests break out. This quote from Walker is interesting:

This afternoon, following a week and a half of line-by-line negotiation, [Democrat] Sen. Miller sent me a letter that offered three options: 1) keep collective bargaining as is with no changes, 2) take our counter-offer, which would keep collective bargaining as is with no changes, 3) or stop talking altogether.

With that letter, I realized that we’re dealing with someone who is stalling indefinitely, and doesn’t have a plan or an intention to return. His idea of compromise is “give me everything I want,” and the only negotiating he’s doing is through the media.

Enough is enough.
