New York Times:  Wisconsin Senate limits bargaining by public employees

(MADISON) Statement from Senator Lena C. Taylor (D-Milwaukee) on tonight’s action by the Senate.

“Tonight’s vote was absolutely disgraceful. In a short roll call vote, 18 Republicans stood with a Governor to pass a bill that did nothing to affect the current budget, but only to achieve their political goals of the destruction of the middle class. Walker and his legislative rubberstamps achieved their goal of ending the Wisconsin values of collective bargaining and access to health care. Tonight is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent for Christians, and in this time set aside for repentance and prayer, Republicans have turned judgment on themselves. Justice will flow down like a river on this state as Wisconsin recalls it elected officials who have betrayed the public’s trust.”
