Sen. President Mike Ellis Says He Was Blind-Sided by Walker, Thought Bill Went Too Far

Yesterday we discussed how Recall Sen. Rob Cowles said he would have voting for the budget without collective bargaining included.  Now, comes information that State Senate President Mike Ellis, made similar comments in a heated interview on WHBY:

WHBY Interviewer:  I think I asked a pretty straight-forward question, Senator. Did you or did you not say that "this is not the way I would have done it?" 

Ellis: I would not have taken all of the collective bargaining items out.

Many are doubtful that the Republicans have the votes to pass the same union-busting bill that they passed in March.  The presumption is that they will pass a watered-down version in the budget bill that will help recall senators, while allowing Governor Walker to save face.
