Gov. Walker: ‘We finally stood up and took them on’
This is a rush transcript from “Hannity,” June 8, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: When Governor Scott Walker was running for governor in Wisconsin, he promised the people of his state that if elected, he would rein in out-of-control spending that was in Madison. Now, on the very day he took the oath of office, he began to follow through on his pledge to solve the state’s budget crisis, and he did so knowing full well the vicious backlash that he would face from unions and other left-wing forces in his state.
Now, you’re not going to find that type of courageous leadership on the national stage these days but you will find it in my next guest, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker who we taped just a few moments earlier.
HANNITY: All right. You have had a little time now o digest all that has happened here. I want to go back, just prior to the recall election on Tuesday. Former President Bill Clinton went to Wisconsin, and as we are dealing with the issues of unions now. And he is claiming that you want to break every union. And that was the claim made by a lot of people. And this is the type of hyperbole, you know, propaganda that is often used. I want to get your reaction of what he said here, Governor.

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: All those people, all these money in Wisconsin. If you don’t show up and vote, all of those will say, see, we got him now. We are finally going to break every union in America. We are going to break every government in America. We are going to stop worrying about the middle class. We don’t give a rip whether poor people get to work their way into it. We got our way now. We got it all. Divide and conquer works. You tell them no.
