Taylor touts Senate version of the budget


DPW first vice chair Sen. Lena Taylor, D-Milwaukee, touted the state budget that was passed out of the Senate this week, especially the Dem-inserted "Healthy Wisconsin" health care overhaul plan.

"Health care reform is on the table," Taylor said in her address at the DPW convention. "You know us Democrats in the Senate, we delivered it."

Taylor also praised Gov. Jim Doyle for his work on the budget, applauding him for his work on funding education.

Taylor urged for continued support for Democrats in the Senate, Assembly and President in 2008.

"We need to make Wisconsin a blue state, not a purple state -- not just in the Senate -- but in the Assembly and the President," Taylor said.

Taylor also relived her cheerleader days from high school, leading the state Dems in a cheer, chanting, "When I say Demo, you say 'Crat -- Demo-Crat! Demo-Crat!
