Listen: Democrats And Wisconsin discussed on The Frame
"All right. I'm you're up. Now, I just wanted to state that this isn't a Bill. This is a coup. You heard words like coup by the minority is not a democracy. And maybe you don't care about democracy. That's a problem. And you heard things like undemocratic that. Even in the tensest of American political debates are not words, come up a great deal. So for the most part, it sounds like these were opponents of these bills almost to a person. Yes. So who are the Republicans who are in the majority of the state legislature in Wisconsin, and who are on this committee, and the legislative Republicans in Wisconsin have really pushed a lot of the conservative changes the state in recent years, and and even as the publican party had a rough night and election night last month. They did pretty well. They already had majorities in both chambers of the legislature. And they kept those even as the statewide races. Swung to the Democrats. And so many of the Republicans were in this extraordinary session. This week are the very Republic. Who will be tasked with working with the new governor when everybody takes a new off of office few weeks. So in a sense this is proposed legislation that would restructure. Wisconsin's government just in time for them to reap the benefits. Absolutely. This is a way for Republicans to shore up their power to take some power away from Democrats in the last chance, they have to do it and Republicans mostly deny expressing lot of qualms about this at least not in public. And most of that proposed legislation cleared that committee, and it was scheduled to go to the full legislature on Tuesday morning. So how did this session? Get started on Tuesday. Slowly would be the word. We were expecting them in late morning early afternoon, and for hours at time, you have these delays, and as it became clear that there is not a lot of immediate legislating to be happening. I stepped out and an honor."
