And all those Wisconsin democratic lawmakers who both of the state -- of the vote of the governor's.
You did crack down Bill -- that state well now they've apparently got some company 37 Indiana Democrats.
Also fleeing to Illinois also protesting -- governor they say is simply going to -- -- -- only thing is Indiana Republican governor Mitch Daniels dropped the thing that they said it was ballistic too far.
A bill that had targeted collective bargaining in the state.
The same measure on which Wisconsin's governor would not back down -- Indiana's Mitch Daniels moments ago how we'll handle.
His missing Democrats.
It's gonna wait -- on their conscience -- their constituents column home.
Do the job there that's supposed to be doing I will say this they're -- Hit the road they picked the right state you know these are the people -- bend Indiana broke a few years ago we've been clean -- up -- from ever sense.
Every year they try to spend money we don't have -- Maybe a look at Illinois where they can't pay their bills they've been raising taxes left to right driving business away in their.
Infrastructure is -- maybe a few days over there'll.
Tellem that we had a little better idea here in Indiana.
You know governor maybe you can clarify -- and -- from -- because.
There have did some critics -- -- -- -- we don't right now we're and it's Daniels is coming from specific on this issue of Democrats -- the state.
You had said at the time I believe this is a perfectly legitimate part.
Of the process.
Where did you say yeah deal because it sounds -- yeah now -- different.
They have around they can be forgiven because I was.
-- little -- with my words most people understood exactly what I meant what I said was legitimate was the protest by a union members and others out in the capital of our state.
You know they were -- to that was just simply say in there within their first amendment rights.
I have always said what the Democrats did walk and off the job taken taxpayer dollars -- -- swimming pool in Illinois.
Was unacceptable and outrageous and embarrassing and but there was one news story in which those.
Two things were confused and I'll take the responsibility for not being clear about my -- On May be so governor but I just want to be clear because.
When a lot of this happened earlier this week I think I've got -- -- Greg is that I thought that was a better time to place that is very important legitimate issue.
-- is talking again about the -- right to work this issue.
And that was interpreted by others saying look I'll take this off the table and we won't make this is -- says it appears to be in Wisconsin.
And then yep then then it was it may be me taking -- that stand in front -- run for president.
This doesn't seem to be popular with the conservative core of his party his running back.
-- -- -- -- -- would get a couple things straight we put a very ambitious program on that on the table and Indiana this year.
Things we've been working on a long time things that these same critics I think what applaud.
Austere no tax budget.
Taxpayer automatic refund when state finances reach a certain level of strength.
Reduction in the corporate income tax rate and the most ambitious -- and have education reform program in America.
I did not put private sector right to work on the table others did and I was afraid that it might serve as a pretext.
For our democratic opposition to throw a temper tantrum as they did and risk the entire agenda.
That we work so hard and two put forward and had put in front of the voters of Indiana last year.
And so absolutely I thought there was a better time to debate private sector right to work.
Please notice that the things that Scott Walker to his credit is trying to do in Wisconsin.
I did them six years ago we don't have collective bargaining in the -- that's one reason so what do you -- I'm -- what do you think of what Scott -- doing now.
I could I am I supporting completely of course he and I talked about it.
This issue while he was a candidate since he got elected.
And he simply trying to do something that that we did in Indiana in 2005.
It's been indispensable not only in balancing the books of the state but.
In transforming state government so it performs better you can get in and out of an Indiana license branch in nine minutes right now your tax refund if you're -- one comes back.
Twice as fast as it used to on and on.
And that could never of happened if we didn't remain saddled with a collective bargaining agreement like the one that he would like to get out of our.
