    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker pauses for a moment before he takes his seat in the governor conference room at the State Capital to give a fireside chat in Madison in this February 22, 2011 file photo. The small-government philosophy of the billionaire Koch brothers -- and their money -- is stirring up the battle to strip public employee unions of their rights to bargain in several U.S. states, analysts say. In Wisconsin, state records show new Republican Governor Scott Walker's campaign received $43,000 last year from the political action committee of Koch Industries Inc, the energy and consumer products giant co-owned by the brothers.

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) holds a news conference at the state Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin February 25, 2011. The Wisconsin state Assembly early on Friday passed a Republican plan to curb public sector union power, setting up a showdown with Senate Democrats who have fled the state to prevent a vote in that chamber. Tens of thousands of demonstrators from inside and outside the state have converged on Madison in the last two weeks to fight the proposal, which they fear could encourage similar measures in other states and cripple the U.S. labor movement.
