Walker: You've Got 24 Hours To Return To Work Or Else I Start Laying People Off

He sounds the right noises, noting he will still avoid layoff for as long as possible.

But if the Fleebaggers don't return to save the state's finances, he will not wait on them, and will start saving money through "aggressive" cost-curbing measures and layoffs.

I actually had hoped, upon seeing the headline, that he had decided to go with the quorum-avoiding tactic of just offering this packages as a non-budgetary one. There is justification for that: If the Fleebaggers are going to employ angle-shooting cheats to impose their will, Walker and the Republican Senators are justified in angle-shooting in return. (Angle-shooting is an aggressive, borderline-cheating style of poker play which basically consists of breaking rules in a deliberate but accidental-seeming manner but then relying on other players' sense of fair play to overlook the rules-breaking.)

But this is okay too. The public is with Walker and the forces of reform; Walker is setting this up so that his hand is forced.
