Chris got walker just got himself another fight well you remember the last one was pretty wicked union protesters angry over the governor's collective bargaining bill storming the state capital while fourteen democratic senators.
Fled the state and hid out in Illinois -- some citizens were so serious they get -- enough signatures to recall the governor and they want to throw him out.
He's a -- -- recall election fact of the greater margin than when he first ran for governor.
Most -- the fight was over but it isn't the governor's collective bargaining law is grabbing headlines again.
-- -- judge just threw -- part of the law declared it Null and void so.
Now what let's ask him Governor -- -- just -- you sir.
Good evening Greta good to -- -- yeah it's nice steady so looks like give another round -- what do you do the trial court judge judge tossed dot we're signature law.
Well we feel so we feel confident did just as this happened last year at Dade County circuit court judge.
Took action to try to take -- part of the law ultimately the states of again in this case as well and I think.
JB van -- and our distinguished attorney general is gonna go ahead and move forward tomorrow already to try to get a stay.
So that in the meantime until the Supreme Court cannot actually ultimately hear this decision.
And make a decision I should say.
That did this isn't screw up things for the local governments -- school districts and towns -- counties and others who would be devastated.
If this law order to not be in effect.
Why don't need to be disrespectful to Supreme Court -- you probably had the most dysfunctional Supreme Court in the entire.
-- -- one trying to choke another two sending out notes to the press to us snitch on the others and fighting going back and forth and I was curious no matter what happens when they win or lose in the Supreme Court.
What kind of -- mean how I -- -- can't imagine a -- people arrested it was Johnson.
I'm -- of -- -- -- that's going to be that it's a pretty weird situation.
Well it is I mean -- -- after always great the world after the Packers beat the bears.
The next day we had this decision I think for people no matter what their politics who was -- and it was.
-- -- We have this recall election as you mentioned we got a bigger margin before more people voted than before.
And I think most people were just happy to move -- a couple months pass this most people cling to quiet down people worried and move on.
And then you've got this again in the courts are hoping is that -- stay will be granted because again if your school district if you're -- govern your local municipal government.
This would be devastating this would cause potentially.
Significant layoffs and that's not what people want out there they're ready to move on and to see that -- reforms -- fell in balancing the budget but saving taxpayers' money lowering property taxes.
The turning a budget deficit into a surplus.
Partly it's not always easy to get a stay because what a stay often times says as he did escape because a judge believes that he or she is gonna get reversed -- -- Court of Appeals in got to die as they got to convince a judge it.
Probably not right when he's just decided against you.
Eight I know that you're seeking to stay but in the event you don't get a -- can you unwrap I mean why you be forced to unravel contracts -- when you -- -- -- Well the case in this decision again I'm not a lawyer but from what -- attorney general of the department just as -- point out to us.
Is it does not affect the state employees -- state governments find the people who are unfortunately.
I'm gonna be heard under this would be of local school districts municipalities and counties they're the ones that are already have levees in place of the only chance for them that they had to Alter the budget.
Would ultimately be staff changes which would be.
I think ultimately bad for -- kids in the schools it would be bad for the taxpayers who need services.
And you know let's be careful what you -- for you might get it that's what what what ultimately might happen in this case.
I'm confident though even the attorney.
For the unions has said in the last day or -- some pretty reasonable statements about understanding.
That there would indeed be an appeal process -- you give people time to work that out so I think.
In the end it's reasonable I would hope that they give this a chance to go forward.
Because otherwise there's going to be an awful lot of local officials trying to figure out exactly what to do next and that's not -- money list.
We had 32 slept how how does the race today in that was Johnston -- President Obama -- governor Romney and -- your friend of congressman Paul Ryan I'm curious what it looks like.
-- -- -- You have different of Paul Ryan Mitt Romney's got to make the case of the doesn't just stand for Republican this is -- -- if you can do that it's neck and neck it's a dead even tie right now.
And he could ultimately win but a lot can happen between now and Election Day.
I -- underwent Tommy Thompson former HHS former governor of the state it was -- you know when his senate race or not.
I think he well he's well known well liked has a tremendous record -- reform and if people understand that it's the difference between an extreme liberal from Madison.
For a proven reformer who can put people back to work Tommy Thompson wins but he's under tremendous tremendous attacks.
From outside money if he can level the playing field out he'll win.
Governors -- thank you -- good luck with that Supreme Court it's pretty wild out there.
Thank you -- thank you.
