General assembly was finally able to improve stripping most collective bargaining rights from the state public workers after being disruptive most of the day by protesters.
The senate approved a similar bill yesterday.
Governor Scott Walker says he'll sign the legislation as quickly as possible.
Angry pro union demonstrators have not only been disrupting the democratic process.
They've been issuing death threats like this one to Wisconsin's Republican leader quote.
We have all planned to assault you by arriving at your house and putting a nice little bullet in your head well.
Take a look at what else has been transpiring.
Within the last 24 hours.
This is the wild.
He's just not in the people's hands it's in the hands of the rich.
Just take it took a look at just okay this is what's coming for you -- Take it anymore but it -- your -- in jail -- -- our money we want the money back.
He can pull out of their homes before the -- There's going to be a massive student walkout Friday afternoon the nationwide student walkout.
A high -- Bless our school he walked out of that school.
-- reaction now from John -- my colleague and host of Stossel on the Fox Business Network.
And Pat -- former pollster for Jimmy Carter before he saw the light and became a Fox News contributor.
Gentlemen welcome here what what is Michael -- trying to do there what kind of disruption is he trying to hit job this time -- I don't know lock you up my goodness I assure you rigid people you have the props here.
But this just because somebody is rich they belong in jail does he look in the mirror -- he says that.
It's Iraq is not as rich as the Forbes 400 and it's the why we need economic education.
Because people for politicians think this way there greater world -- a zero sum game one person wins somebody else loses.
They don't it's not intuitive to understand that these rich people don't take from others that they create wealth do politicians even understand that the government consumes wealth -- private enterprise creates wealth take a dollar out of private enterprise and and it to give it to the tax man.
That's a dollar less that could be needed to more of a dollar.
And no not really a meaning you know -- -- I remember Barney Frank gave a -- slash hear two businesspeople.
Telling him how government help them this is government's job to make the economy war and what their role -- This is a problem that they'd look our politicians don't understand very much of anything I think I'm.
-- they're approved an honest people don't understand another guy but still it but it's not intuitive but we don't educate anybody about anything and that's the -- -- don't movies.
In my right that's -- -- of education do you think these protests are gonna get worse I mean this guy is calling for children.
To leave their schools.
On a Friday afternoon you talk about endangering the welfare of a -- what what is his back.
I'm not a prediction business that's his there.
I won't go there I don't know what we'll have -- but obviously people need to understand -- this -- Can help America on this thing no means you're seeing things blow up today in the way you know -- -- -- -- -- party.
-- -- think capital management plan is covered and mainstream media who will protest but.
No this is going to get this is going to get worse because there's a belief that you could move this now in the streets it's insane -- This is a misunderstanding.
Of public -- country.
The Republicans let me just say this have done the worst job ever to make their case to go back to -- point John just -- about education.
To explain the difference as Chris Christie did two weeks ago between teachers and -- I.
The Republicans in Wisconsin did a terrible awful thing he did the right thing legally but politically and from a PR point of view they -- beautiful must tell people what you're doing and why.
And you must explain what the -- of the -- collective bargaining.
-- and when we get to government -- the best argument is they were saying we don't want collective bargaining but the cops and the firemen.
If I think it would make more sense if they say we don't want forced unionization -- should have argued was frankly is the difference between.
What would the work rules mean with two with a collective bargaining work -- -- you can't fire bad speaker John you can't report you can make government efficient.
And it is and that's where you get his -- called -- Yesterday under this -- -- tell us about -- driver.
This state Wisconsin is the birthplace of progressive -- That this is in their -- in their genes this is this is their culture.
Can it be changed with two votes and I governor and a governor signature.
Or is this near violence that we have been observing in the past three weeks going to be perpetual until the mob gets its way.
Well again I won't predict the future but this sense of entitlement to write that.
Gets them out there saying how dare you have that's.
That's the -- lost the last days you hope that the government will take her view and the idea that they represented labor there's signs say we represented the middle class will they represent maybe 12%.
Of labor didn't Chris Christie put his finger on -- -- he's in my -- is not what the hardworking people he might -- is with the users shouldn't have these.
-- he did in this is what I don't understand the the because what the unions have been able to do in this historic -- the governor.
The first bullets this it -- pumping about -- -- -- the -- Governor Walker Wisconsin the cultural Wisconsin is what you said.
You're changing the cultural place if you're going to do that you need to a educate explain.
Because the people basically I think in the end with him until it looks like you allow the unions to seize the emotional high ground got just what they did.
