When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker set out to be a tool of the Tea Party he probably never intended to become an anti-family values Republican at the same time.
But apparently that is just where his union-busting bill has taken him, according to one GOP state senator from Wisconsin.
“It’s tearing up families. It’s tearing up friends,” state Sen. Tom Larson told the local Chippewa newspaper.
Democratic state Sen. Mark Miller told The Wall Street Journal (the biggest anti-union paper in America) that Walker's decision to lay off 1,500 people was "a new level of hostility," adding that the governor "is using human beings as political pawns."
Walker has given workers an ultimatum: Give up their collective bargaining rights or else he will start firing people.
