-- -- the Wisconsin unions are not giving up just he had they've got have to signatures needed to vote a Republican state senators out of office but no chance of that happening to the they -- -- in the state because governor Scott Walker aren't going anywhere -- can't be recalled until one result anyway maybe just enough time for the state to -- He was right first on fox the governor joining us -- from Madison governor -- you tell us.
I'm doing well we're ready get to -- working again just did to the nitty gritty of what's -- on right now.
You know now and then governor watch.
The news networks read the media -- papers and Wednesday have been all over you.
Hum reunion hater -- against the working man.
Your Darth Vader without that moment I mean I've seen and heard at all.
-- -- -- -- -- -- We -- I get out of the capital that's the most important I was in Green Bay was in Wausau.
Was in Hudson yesterday I get out outside of the -- tomorrow and announce a number companies are coming to Wisconsin from -- -- expanding in our state.
We get out of the capital real people middle class workers recognize.
We're protecting middle class jobs and middle class property taxpayers and that for years they've been sick of government growing and growing and growing.
In the middle class being the one picking up the tab at the more we get out the -- more we realize that there's a silent majority they may not be out capital are on the capitol protesting.
But there's -- kind of people who come to work every day and they realize what we're asking for is very not a -- is a great way to protect them.
Aren't unions though -- organized right and they're the ones organizing this recall laughter.
Targeting a lot of his Republican not not that the Democrats and bolts of the statements -- British or.
But obviously they can be very effective -- Galvanizing and getting out the vote and we -- just yesterday the mayor of and Miami was booted out of office 11 guy turns out to be a billionaire in this case.
Let recall operating got double the number of signatures.
That he wanted armed.
Do you -- look over your shoulder and say whatever rightness of the justices -- -- cause.
That well armed opponents.
Can -- it.
No I think in the end they're gonna have the money to put the boots on the ground they've got money from outside -- Wisconsin.
Literally we saw three point seven million dollars with the TV ads most of which were attack ads most of which were paid for by union bosses from DC.
And outside of our big states of their -- -- the money to do to collect the signatures to get the recalls but I think in the -- you look at the difference between the recall.
We did things and ultimately every day that goes by middle class taxpayers will in this state we'll see that we were standing up for them.
Standing up for the taxpayers who for years have had to pay for more more on this in contrast.
To those fourteen states senators.
Who alternately left their job for three weeks can you imagine any middle class worker who left his job but the factors for -- it should be fired.
But they're -- Edwards ultimately there's an effort to get a -- out there are -- hot candidate because it was so.
It doesn't say a lot regardless what -- -- -- that.
You could -- we were called for a vote you bag -- not making a vote at all.
What really is an amazing difference because.
They want -- you're actually doing your job standing up making the tough decisions that we elected to do.
I think in the end the people those districts -- processor was cats will see the courage that those senators had in in taking.
That the mobs for many cases from outside Wisconsin and instead standing up to the taxpayers in their districts and people understand that.
They realize this is about saving money balancing the budget protecting good workers.
And ultimately about making the government work -- -- -- think about the schools and local governments across the state now that instead of being forced.
To make hiring and firing decisions based on seniority union contract.
Instead to make them on performance imagine that actually performance of merit that's better for all of us who care about.
You -- fear of education -- local governments but you can't hit it you.
Might have over rates and that any effort to bring some budgetary discipline to your state sorely needed it.
You went too far and alienate a lot of public workers.
The image doesn't look good -- and why it's you haven't had across the board the kind of support you might think.
Well I think because up until now the billions of dollars coming in from these outside you -- bosses.
-- focused on the word right Steve called a collective arguments there are no collective bargain -- it's like federal government employs even under President Obama.
Do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits it's why.
They're paying on average 28% of the health insurance previous in the federal government compared to the twelve point 6% we want from state local workers.
The more the truth gets out the facts are clear and the facts are on our side of the more time we have when people realize all the scare tactics didn't work.
The schools will continue affect unlike nearly every other state in this country which is also nearly every one of facing budget deficits where they're cutting doing.
These -- governor -- I -- sandwich and you're actually can protect our schools here are Andersen auditors are but I just aggressive donated a rising Republican good progress and start.
When I asked about what you were doing she gave this kind of -- -- lukewarm response like well.
So -- -- -- Wisconsin -- have to consider it was hardly -- ringing endorsement the likes of which I got out of here.
A colleague John Kasich -- Ohio.
And I noticed more in her camp this tepid support.
Then I did.
In the case as it gets in the end because they.
Well I think in the -- -- because.
Many people are being intimidated to be intimidated by that the thuggery that's going on.
But these folks coming in from outside -- our state and -- -- -- happened in other states but -- cannot -- -- about what -- Now because what bugs -- what they're doing I mean I think in many cases it's what you expect out of a mafia movie about what you expected to hit -- in terms of people trying to influence your state government.
In the end -- for us.
Time that goes by as as the voters in this state the taxpayers the middle class taxpayers in this state.
Reward the people had the courage to stand up and do the right thing long term.
Not just for a short term fix that's what Paterson -- trouble in the past.
Was short term fixes we stand up and have the courage of our convictions to make the tough choices now -- kids don't face even more dire consequences in future.
I think leaders across the state Republican or Democrat -- and across the country.
Will realize we did the right thing.
Governor Scott Walker thank you very much.
