I don't think Scott Walker is very concerned about his "numbers"...he's got the votes and has no reason to compromise on anything, other than perhaps which way to move the cheese to the renegage rats can justify coming back to do their jobs.
He might throw them a few curds as a reward if they don't bring back any Rat friends for Illinois.
Republicans pulled collective bargaining changes from the budget repair bill and instead put them in the guv's budget proposal.
Cue the Akbar “It’s a trap” picture.
The morons put themselves in this box and I don’t think Scott is going to help them out of it........If he does he just as well resign.
Screw them. Just wait as the 30 days wind down.
I can’t wait to see what happens just before that day :)
The recall campaign for state sen. Robert Wirch seems to be going well.
Like most of you I smell a RAT. Does the budget have to be passed by a larger margin than just a majority?
The repubs should be making clear that should the Dems EVER return to power, they will be treated exactly the same with walkouts.
1st side to blink loses.
The WI legislature, however, should be dismissed and the National Guard called out to clean out the Capitol.
To h3ll with those what throw fits, run away and/or go home when they don’t get their way. Dems should really think about who’s coming to power now in Egypt before they pat themselves on the back for WisCairo. Someone always has to be the janitor.
We are frakin broke. All the laws and riots in the world aren’t going to change that. Making up jerkwagon doctor’s excuses and flying in national pols to pay out street cash is simple pointless grandstanding. Shipping in paid protestors violates RICO and redeck common sense.
By the time the Dems come back from their champagne and caviar dream home on the ‘Victim’ dream vacation, they’re gonna find themselves shunned.
Why? The fleebaggers will just leave again when the budget bill is taken up.
Moving it only is an advantage to the democrats. It stalls a bigger bill.
Declare the 14 democrats’ seats vacant, issue special election writs. They need to be gone. They are not there, they are deliberately violating state law by not being there when the senate is in session. They are violating their oaths of office. They are outlaws.
What is he doing phoning in his vote from out of state? This puke is a coward... let him come back and work in the constitutional process as he was elected to do.
Throughout this whole process, collective bargaining is referred to as a “right”. This is completely false. Collective bargaining is a benefit offered to the workers by the State.
