The mayor of Madison has ordered the Capitol Police to “stand down”. They refuse to protect the Assemblypersons coming in for the vote at 11 a.m. today. The police allowed protestors to climb through windows yesterday and they poured in like cockroaches.

The minority senate leader Mark Miller (still hiding out in Illinois) has called for the public to disrupt and stop the vote.

There is no sense in contacting the Capitol Police-they will just dump you into an overflow voicemail. Try the regular Madison police dept and DEMAND that they bring order to our Capitol and protest our legislators. The legislatros are not able to get in to vote. The protestors are even blocking the so-called “secret” tunnel so the legislators cannot get in to the Capitol for their vote at 11:00 a.m.

Reviewing the budget bill — everybody needs to pay more for retirement, etc. to avoid massive layoffs.

He’s explaining (yet again) what is being asked of the public unions of WI, and also how the budget is affected by it.

In other news, the state capitol is now on lockdown because of the kooks.

Scott Walker is just explaining that the vote WAS legal and had been considered. He is talking about saving jobs, balancing the budget, and protecting to middle class WI. He is saying everyone he talks to says it is reasonable to ask for these concessions in repair bill, since many of regular taxpayers would LOVE to have the deal that state workers have.

Scott better see this for what it is - anarchy. Best resolved with the working end of an M-16.

Maybe this is dumb question but I'm a simple person.

If the police REFUSE to the job they were hired to do, shouldn't they be fired?

I don't know what else needs to happen to convince people that this nation has a very serious problem. And I mean a VERY serious 1860 kind of problem.

Dems need to get this resolved ASAP. Walker comes across too well on TV. The more reason the Dems give him to be center stage, the more it may go against them.

He is very articulate. He is in command of what he is saying.

If per chance Walker were drafter to run for POTUS in 2012, I can sea waves of supporters with T-shirts with a picture of a teleprompter with the no circle and line through it with the words Walker leads, Obama reads below.

Walker:

“Dirty tricks!!!??” The 14 Senators have been out of State for over 3 weeks.

Constituents in these districts need to ask why their elected representatives aren’t there voting on their behalf.

Contrast that with Obama who RARELY takes questions, and when he does fumbles, stumbles, and bumbles, give long winded answers that are just BS. Walker is clear concise and can think on his feet. Harvard vs an Eagle Scout, Badger Boys Stater

I see you used the 1860 reference. I get it. Some years ago I read a book about what happened in Congress just before the civil war broke out. It was much like what is happening now in Madison. To all FReepers there, God bless you.

“Public employees will pay more for their benefits, but still not as much as those in the private sector.”

“Public employees will no longer be mandated by law that they have to join the union and have $1000 deducted from their paychecks to pay the union dues.”

Some bimbo in the Q&A just asked Walker about the “dirty trick” (that’s funny there) the pubs played yesterday and Walker responded to her by saying the dirty trick was played by the 14 Senators and that democracy was for them not to be in Illinois but instead in Wisonsin arena.

Scott Walker is AWESOME.

He's blaming Miller, not the whole batch of Dem senators.

He's implying this may be being orchestrated from DC.

He's a very calming influence.
He says he welcomes passionate debate ... but doesn't want out of state folks coming in to cause trouble.

So far police are trying to get people leave voluntarily.

He sounds so calm and reasonable. He's answering questions directly and succinctly. No umming, no teleprompter, no evasion. Very impressive.

Says when this all settles out, we'll find it is not something dramatic, just giving local school systems the tools they need to balance the budget. That there will still be workplace protections, etc.

Yes, my cousin in Madison is married to a high school classmate of mine. He is a social worker or counselor something pukish like that she was telling my Mom that Walker is a "dictator".

I wish Walker was my Governor here in New Hampshire.

What I had in common with my cousin in Wisconsin isn't worth the contacts.

so he made it a right to work state? sounds like it. no longer will you have to belong to a union, and the state will no longer collect union dues.

excellent!

I hope other states take notice!

And, no more school board decisions based on seniority, they can hire and fire based on merit!

This guy so far, has impressed me beyond any republican in recent years.

Compare that scene to what is happening now in Madison.

I love the Internet for all that it allows us to have. We don't have to depend on filtered and agenda-fulled networks (cable and/or broadcast).

Whenever possible, I prefer to find similar live 'raw' streams. I don't need a bunch of network interpreters to tell me what I saw/heard.
