It’s the shootout at the Cheesehead Coral.  Governor Walker (R):

“Failure to return to work and cast their votes will lead to more painful and aggressive spending cuts in the very near future,” Mr. Walker, a Republican, said in a statement. “This is the Senate Democrats’ 24-hour notice.”

Hmmm. Tough-sounding. We’ll see. Meanwhile, Democrats know what they are against but not, or will not say, what they are for:

Sen. Fred Risser, a Democrat, said Mr. Walker’s deadline on the bond issue wouldn’t sway his colleagues to return to Wisconsin. He said the group continued to meet daily. “The bond threat is not going to scare us one way or another,” Mr. Risser said. “The 14 of us are still united. We haven’t developed any exit strategy at this time.”
