Scott Walker, on Youtube video
In fact, if you hear closely to the tapes or read the transcript, you will be just as outraged as I was when I first heard the tape.
Here the Transcript:
Walker: Hi; this is Scott Walker.
Koch: Scott! David Koch. How are you?
Walker: Hey, David! I'm good. And yourself?- Advertisement -
Koch: I'm very well. I'm a little disheartened by the situation there, but, uh, what's the latest?
Walker: Well, we're actually hanging pretty tough. I mean--you know, amazingly there's a much smaller group of protesters--almost all of whom are in from other states today. The State Assembly is taking the bill up--getting it all the way to the last point it can be at where it's unamendable. But they're waiting to pass it until the Senate's--the Senate Democrats, excuse me, the assembly Democrats have about a hundred amendments they're going through. The state Senate still has the 14 members missing but what they're doing today is bringing up all sorts of other non-fiscal items, many of which are things members in the Democratic side care about. And each day we're going to ratchet it up a little bit". The Senate majority leader had a great plan he told about this morning--he told the Senate Democrats about and he's going to announce it later today, and that is: The Senate organization committee is going to meet and pass a rule that says if you don't show up for two consecutive days on a session day--in the state Senate, the Senate chief clerk--it's a little procedural thing here, but--can actually have your payroll stopped from being automatically deducted--
Walker: --into your checking account and instead--you still get a check, but the check has to be personally picked up and he's instructing them--which we just loved--to lock them in their desk on the floor of the state Senate.
