GRITtv: Sen. Lena Taylor: Budgeting Badly in Wisconsin

"I have received nothing but overwhelming support from my constituents, saying 'We love you but don't come home,'" says Lena Taylor, one of the fourteen Wisconsin state senators who left the state in order to delay a vote on Governor Scott Walker's "budget repair" bill, that would eliminate collective bargaining for state employees. Walker unveiled his budget yesterday, after driving protesters out of the taxpayer-owned capitol building, and Sen. Taylor is not thrilled with his ideas--and not intimidated by his threats. She joins us via phone from her undisclosed location to give us her thoughts on Walker's priorities. Distributed by Tubemogul.
