I know it took great self-control. You must have agonized hours and hours over this. The pressure had to have been beyond intense. And yet there you stood, as Wisconsin's top dog, in total defiance. You refused, as enticing as this idea was, to include it in your budget address Tuesday night.
You must be second-guessing yourself, Governor. After all, this is so up your alley. To reject this notion and leave it out of your speech..........wow. I just can't believe you were able to demonstrate such incredible self-restraint.
Thank you, Governor. Thank you. I don't know how or why this didn't make it into your 2009-11 budget proposal, but boy am I.............relieved!
