"We have tractors" on the square in Madison, Wisconsin, Photos, Videos of Farmers Protesting Budget Repair Bill

Walker's Budget Repair bill, saying it is bad for Rural America.

He said Walker is attacking school funding and Badger care. The representative from Family Farm Defenders said 11,000 Wisconsin farmers are on Badgercare and will lose it due to the Budget Repair Bill:
