MADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following Scott Walker's House testimony Thursday.

"Now the Congress has seen with its own eyes what Wisconsin has seen for months, that Scott Walker's union-busting, state-rending legislation is about promoting Scott Walker and concentrating power into the hands of his friends, and nothing to do with honest solutions to Wisconsin's budget challenges. In the hearings, Walker continued to make his plan about his personal political fortunes, and not about the thousands of working families he is supposed to be serving. He acknowledged that his plan was a bait-and-switch that he deliberately withheld from the public during his campaign. And he shrugged off very real fears about his deep cuts to education and Wisconsin's standard of living at the expense of his Koch Brothers masters.

Scott Walker got more of what he has long sought, more attention for himself. And again, he has proven an embarrassment to Wisconsin."
