“I think she's one of the best reporters out there. She is relentless,” Glenn said of Kelly.
In her interview, Kelly said “First of all, people want to know how you can go out of the state not, you know, show up and do your job as a state senator and continue to collect a paycheck.”
“Well, we firmly believe we are doing our job. Not only are we talking with our constituents every day and returning phone calls and checking on work e‑mails, we're also standing up for what we believe in and what thousands of Wisconsin citizens believe in and the direction that the governor wants to take the state as well. We're not doing this to stop people. We all know the vote's going to happen at some point. We all know that. We're doing it to call attention to what Governor Walker wants to do by taking away workers rights in the State of Wisconsin,” the senator responded.
Later, Kelly asked, “What do you say to those folks who say, look, we have a Democratic process here and, you know, this governor won election fair and square, as did the Republicans who now control the state assembly and the state Senate.”
“And this is, what we do on this country is we vote. We have up or down vote. We saw it on the healthcare bill, right? Which the majority of Americans did not want, sir, according to the polls and yet we had that vote and it was voted through. And they look at the Wisconsin state senators, the Democrats and say that's your job to go in there. And you can vote no and you can rail on the Senate floor about why this is wrong, but you've got to ‑‑ you've got to go vote, sir,” she added.
“Oh, no, and we fully intend on voting on something. Again this was never to stop a vote because we know the vote's going to happen. The question is what are we going to be voting on,” he tried to answer.
“The teachers walking out, I read a stat cost $9 million. Now, what is this costing the state? Here's a state that is having trouble. What is this costing the state just to police the capitol? What is this costing to keep the capitol clean? With, you know, hippie love‑ins in the middle of the capitol?” Glenn said.
“Can you imagine? If the Tea Party would have done that? And the reason why they don't is because they have respect for the process.”
