President Obama on the Wisconsin budget

Updated

Our Milwaukee affiliate, WMTJ, spoke with President Obama exclusively today. We played some of his remarks about the historic Wisconsin protests on The Ed Show tonight, but we thought you should be able to see the entirety of his remarks. So here they are:

Keep in mind, the idea that this “budget crisis” is a fiscal reality just doesn’t pan out. As we laid out on tonight’s edition of The Ed Show, the Wisconsin state Fiscal Bureau just last month reported that the state is not in bad shape. And as you’ll see if you read it for yourself, it explains that more than $100 million in revenue has been lost due to Gov. Walker’s tax breaks for the rich. Our buddy John Nichols wrote this editorial explaining it all and Ed talked about it on his radio show earlier today, too.

Wisconsin and Barack Obama
