Today's protest rally at the Capitol was a powerful expression of opposition to Gov. Scott Walker's "budget repair" bill and his high-handed, dictatorial approach to collective bargaining.
he would deliver next week's budget message off-site, not at a joint session of the Legislature in the Capitol, but at a private business, Vita Plus, an animal feed company on Fish Hatchery Road. Supposedly, this was planned in advance of the protests.
Walker says he is releasing his budget outside the Capitol to highlight the promise of his administration to create 250,000 jobs over four years.But since the announcement was made during the height of the protest Tuesday, it's understandable that a lot of people thought the Walker administration just wanted to deliver the budget message in an out-of-the-way location where attendance could be tightly controlled. Wonder how that will work out for them?
