7-1-13 budget protesters

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis. (AP) — A handful of protesters greeted people coming to see Gov. Scott Walker sign the Wisconsin state budget.   About a half-dozen protesters waved signs outside the Pleasant Prairie company where the governor signed the budget on Sunday.  Seventy-year-old retiree Mary Palmer, of Racine, came to protest with her two sisters and a couple of teachers.  Palmer says she thinks Walker isn't doing enough to support education and she doesn't like his plans to expand private school vouchers. Palmer also says she opposes the governor's policies generally and thinks he cares more about corporations than state residents.
