GET ME REWRITE: Wisconsin GOP all male/whites only leadership demonstrates again that it can't govern

Headline:  Wisconsin State Journal, 12/4/2023
The Republican head of the Wisconsin Senate said Monday he wants to see pay raises approved for Universities of Wisconsin employees, pitting himself against the state Assembly speaker who has vowed to withhold UW funding until it cuts its spending on diversity, equity and inclusion. 
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos refused to approve pay raises for UW employees in October when the Legislature’s employment relations committee, which Vos co-chairs, okayed them for other state employees. Vos said he doesn't believe the UW system deserves more funding until it cuts its so-called DEI programs. 
Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu said Monday that he opposes withholding the money.

The Democratic leadership provides a contrast in governing.
