Wisconsin Democrats could stay away for weeks

I’m sure there are...erm...pressure points that will cause a runaway Demmocommie to come back.
And if that doesn’t work, licensed bounty hunters.
They need 20 for a quorum only for passing fiscal legislation. If it's non-fiscal, they already have enough for a quorum.
Think of all the non-fiscal goodies they can pass while the Dems hide out in IL: make WI a right-to-work state, all kinds of pro-gun legislation, the sky's the limit. If only they had the balls....
I’m not sure, as far as I know they’re still behaving legally although cowardly.
I’d dock their pay for every day they’re gone and keep moving Senate business ahead on any bill where I didn’t need a 60% forum.
Beggars the imagination.
New York, they’d at least have had several bribes and kickbacks worked in there as well.
I know, don’t give them ideas.
Recall of the absent representatives?
The parents will just love them if they do. heh
“Actually they can. The 3/5ths qourum requirement ONLY applies to fiscal legislation. So they could go ahead with CCW / gun legislation and other non-fiscal laws.”
Is a law stating that if an elected official misses 10 or more consecutive days of a legislative session then that official has vacated that office a non-fiscal law?
If so, the solution is obvious.
Then take the fight to these MFs......Alinsky tactics: isolate, ridicule, hypocrisy, uncaring for “the children”
Expose them for lying, hypocritical selfish bastards they are. They’re givin you the rope, hang em high.
And add to the uncaring for “The taxpayers” Gee, try THAT ONE ON FOR SIZE FOR ONCE GOP” Trust me, it will work.
I wonder if it`s possible to hold back their paychecks? I don`t get paid to run away from my job...
Stop their pay now, and they will come back..
Interesting. I wonder what the criteria is for member expulsion. In the US House, expulsion only requires a 2/3rds vote, which is marginally smaller than 3/5ths - maybe they can pull that off.
That should start some riots.
You little people will do what we say, when we tell you to do it and smile while doing it.
Now pay your taxes, we need raises. :)
Why stop there? Make the Rats head explode and pass OPEN carry. Ban abortions. Ban teacher tenure. Require ID to vote. All those things that always make Rats go into hissy fits.
You're on to something here. Suppose one or two of them are hiding out in a hotel in, I don't know, Nebraska. They're spotted and tracked, but their trackers keep a distance. In the meantime, the republican Senators are sent to the location where these democrats are located and have the vote at that location. In essence, hold the vote in the hotel lobby or bar.
If you can't bring the democrats to the Senate, bring the Senate to the democrats!
Hmmmm, interesting. Pass the parts that can be passed. Let the Dems squeal.
President Barack Obama has also weighed in, saying in an interview with Milwaukee television station WTMJ that Walker’s bill to “an assault on unions.”
The unions are nothing but a bunch of dam extortionists and thieves and any one worth their salt would not belong to one of them unless they do not care for freedom or have their heads in the sand.
Who the heck is footing the bills for the 'Rats?
