MADISON, Wis. — Thousands of protesters continue to gather at the Wisconsin capitol to protest Walker's attempt to abolish collective bargaining rights in the state. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore addressed the crowd, Saturday, telling them, "America is not broke …The country is awash in wealth and Cash – it's just that it is not in your hands. It has been transferred in the greatest heist in history into the wallets and portfolios of the uber-rich…" The Skanner News Video: Michael Moore
"Four Hundred obscenely wealthy individuals – 400 little Mubaraks …. Now have more cash …..than the assets of 150 million Americans combined."
On Monday, the leader of the 14 Wisconsin Senate Democrats who fled to Illinois 18 days ago to delay passage of a bill taking away collective bargaining rights from public employees asked Gov. Scott Walker for a meeting.
Democratic Sen. Mark Miller asks Walker in a letter for an in-person meeting "as soon as possible to resume negotiations" on how to resolve the impasse over the bill.
Miller also asks Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald to attend the meeting.
Miller says Democrats are "ready and willing to find a reasonable compromise." He asks for the meeting with Walker and Fitzgerald, or their representatives, somewhere near the Wisconsin-Illinois border.
Walker and Fitzgerald's office did not immediately respond to requests for reaction to the invitation.
