Governor Walker of Wisconsin tells the absent state senate Democrats (and the rest of Wisconsin and the nation) what will happen if they don’t return within 24 hours:
Now they have one day to return to work before the state loses out on the chance to refinance debt, saving taxpayers $165 million this fiscal year,” Walker’s spokesman Cullen Werwie said in a statement.
“Failure to return to work and cast their votes will lead to more painful and aggressive spending cuts in the very near future,” the statement said.
I like this guy’s resolve. So far he has not blinked. We’ll see whether they do.
