Capitol Chaos: Grigsby Says Walker 'Waging War'
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Democratic Wisconsin state Rep. Tamara Grigsby says Republican Gov. Scott Walker is "waging war" on Wisconsin families with his budget plan that calls for deep cuts to schools and public assistance programs.
Walker delivered his speech on Tuesday in the Assembly chamber as protesters screamed and banged on drums a floor below. More than a thousand more marched outside.
Grigsby says Walker's plan assails Wisconsin's traditions and doesn't create jobs.
But Republican Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder says the plan is a good first step in getting the state's economy back on track. He calls it bold and decisive action.
