Obama: “I don’t think it does anybody any good when public employees are denigrated or vilified or their rights are infringed upon.”
Walker: "I’m sure the president knows that most federal employees do not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits while our plan allows it for base pay.
And I’m sure the president knows that the average federal worker pays twice as much for health insurance as what we are asking for in Wisconsin. At least I would hope he knows these facts.
"Furthermore, I’m sure the president knows that we have repeatedly praised the more than 300,000 government workers who come to work every day in Wisconsin.
"I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like union bosses in saying one thing and doing another."
Call Governor Walker and let him know you appreciate the bold stand he is taking and his hard work for fiscal responsibility. (608) 266-1212.
