This morning, Wisconsin Republican State Senator Dale Schultz — who is rumored to be considering voting against Governor Scott Walker’s union-busting “budget bill” — spoke to Scott Thompson at WEKZ radio in Monroe, Wis. During the interview, which Jud Lounsbury of the blog Uppity Wisconsin recorded, Schultz called Walker’s legislation a “classic overreach”. Here highlights from Schultz:

“It’s about dignity” (on his empathy with workers about the potential loss of collective bargaining rights.) … All I know is that we’re not talking, we’re wasting valuable time about collective bargaining, which I don’t ever remember being a part of last election’s discussion what so ever.”
