Governor Walker, when he was not too busy taking phone calls from who he thought were the Koch Brothers or visiting with Frank Luntz, was busy telling people he campaigned on collective bargaining.
“I campaigned on (the proposals in the budget repair bill for Wisconsin) all throughout the election. Anybody who says they are shocked on this has been asleep for the past two years.”
Once again, Walker brought out his tap shoes and did his best to dance around a question. But Rep. Gerry Connelly (D-Va.) kept plugging away. He asked Walker if he had ever brought up repealing workers’ collective bargaining rights during his campaign.
Walker said during debates and speeches he talked about mediation and arbitration changes. Connolly again asked the question and walker continued to weasel around it. Finally:
Connolly: I am asking you a very specific question did you bring up collective bargaining during the campaign.
Someone get Scott Walker a lifesaver, he is in way over his head in Washington DC!
