Wisconsin Dem vows to fight GOP plan as union supporters rally here

Union workers and supporters ignored wintry weather Saturday as they rallied downtown to protest efforts by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker to strip most public employees in that state of their collective bargaining rights.
The rally came as one of the 14 runaway Wisconsin senators said in an appearance at Operation PUSH Headquarters on the South Side that she and the other Democratic legislators wont return home until the GOP governor agrees to negotiate on his plan to end collective bargaining for public workers.
His agenda is wrong for Wisconsin, and were standing our ground, Wisconsin State Sen. Lena Taylor said.
Organizers estimated about 2,000 people braved snow and cold winds to attend the rally outside the James R. Thompson Center. There were no arrests, police said.
We want to let Wisconsin workers know we support them, said Tom Beck, a city worker and member of Carpenters Local 13, who carried a sign reading United We Stand, Divided We Beg.
United We Steal, Divided We Demand.
These people have yet to prove they aren’t holding these Senators captive.
OK. Start firing parasites by the thousands!!
Okay, so agree to negotiate.
Spend 5 minutes negotiating, declare a quorum in attendance, and take a vote.
Milwaukee RAT, as if that wasn't obvious
Intellectually and emotionally stunted individuals.
And, they’re scared, too. (they ought to be.)
How’s those recall the RATS petitions going?
I believe there were several organizations working on somewhere around seven of those Democrat State Senator runaways recall petitions.
This is a Democrat fight against The Constiturion.
Don't forget, Democrat/socialists could never push their agenda in the open at the ballot box. They relied on the courts.
The Obammunist openly condemns The Constitution with Socialized medicine ("you can read it when it is passed in the dark of Christman night"), "marriage is un-Constitutional", states rights (Arizona) are un-Constitutional.
Obama/Democrat Party, "The Constitution of the United States of America is un-Constitutional.
President Obama/Democrat/Socialist Party, "The ballot box is un-Constitutional."
Anyone else notice that the 14 Wisconsin dem Senators find solace in fleeing to Crook County in Illinois?
"...she... wont return home until the GOP governor agrees to negotiate on his plan to end collective bargaining for public workers."
Huh? How can she fight if she doesn't show up for work?
The Dems vow to fight on? How? The battle was lost last November. Arguments were heard. Stances have been taken. It’s now time to vote. If one doesn’t like what occurred, then one votes in different reps in 2012. This is how democracy works.
Furthermore, why should the GOP compromise with the Dems? They have enough votes to get everything they want. In the truest sense, the Governor has reached compromise with the both houses. The intellectual depravity of the left is mind numbing. I’m no hypocrite either, if the Dems had won the election I wouldn’t expect them to compromise either.
Now, on the Fed level, the GOP and the Dems will likely have to compromise if they want to get something passed. On the other hand, one side may choose to make a principled stand and not compromise. This would be possible because the voters sent a split government to Washington and one side may think there’s an advantage in exposing the other sides goals. See how it works lefties?
We have Filibuster rules to slow down and expose majorities, too. Simply running out of town crying and whining as embarrassing. I sure hope going AWOL doesn’t become a precedent (Lefties: A precedent is something that gets established as excepted practice) in our country. I can see it now, which ever side loses the election, heads to Europe until the next election cycle. We have to nip this in the bud right now. I don’t like it at all.
Elections have consequences and obiviously since the governor campaigned on this the rest of WI wants this so STFU and go home.
WI RATs hate working people.
Governor Walker’s pink slips should simply read: “Thanks to the Democrats, you are being laid-off. Be sure to thank them for losing your job.”
“Indiana RAT, wearing a rat.”
Really. If you are going to wear a rug at least wear a good one. He can always do a Carl Levin style combover if the rug thing wears thin.
