"'The tide is turning, and people are turning against this bill to take away worker rights in Wisconsin,' says a determined state Sen. Mark Miller, a Democrat from Wisconsin, his voice hoarse from a non-stop schedule of interviews with media from around the nation. 'If the governor remains intransigent, there will be consequences,' he vowed.
