Walker to Fleeing Dems: You've Got 24 Hours

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has certainly had a very interesting governorship. His proposal for financial concessions and the reversal of some collective bargaining rights has caused a furor like no other. With Democrats out of the state he has laid down an ultimatum:

24 hours to go.

After the deadline, the state loses an opportunity to refinance its debt to save money. Without the extra cash, Wisconsin will have to lay off over 1,000 employees.
"Now they have one day to return to work before the state loses out on the chance to refinance debt, saving taxpayers $165 million this fiscal year," Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said. "Failure to return to work and cast their votes will lead to more painful and aggressive spending cuts in the very near future."
Werwie said Walker was giving the Democrats 24-hour notice. He added that the governor will delay sending out layoff notices "as long as possible."

Tick tock.
