Raw Video: Dems Respond to Governor
ILLINOIS---At an Illinois hotel, Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller of Monona spoke to reporters just minutes after Governor Scott Walker finished his fireside chat.
Senator Miller told reporters that the Democratic senators who are currently hiding out in Illinois will return to Madison and vote when Governor Walker will agree to a "compromise." Miller said since state workers agreed to pay more for their benefits, that the Governor should agree to let them continue to have their collective bargaining rights.
"The issue before us is about rights," Miller said. "That's what we are here for today is protect the rights of workers. Wisconsin has one of the longest traditions of workers rights in the country."
