Wisconsin Democrats abandoned their jobs while Republicans legislate
Wisconsin facing bankruptcy elected a Republican majority in both legislative houses, and a Republican Governor Scott Walker. They want to eliminate collective bargaining for state employees and the unions, Democrats, the news media, and the Obama regime are screaming, demonstrating, flying in out of state agitators, and busing in out of state union demonstrators.
This being done to avoid the loss of over $330 million in annual union dues. Where a good portion ends up in Democratic Party campaign funds.
The Democrats committed malfeasance when they abandoned their jobs and slithered to Illinois. This was done to deprive a quorum in the state’s Senate. The Republicans to move the legislation forward eliminate the spending parts of the bill from the legislation. A quorum is only needed on spending bills. Without a quorum needed, the legislation passed eliminating public sector unions / collective bargaining for most Wisconsin state employees.
In the end the Democrat malfeasance and job abandonment did nothing to stop the legislative process. Further proof to the Democrats their only loyalty is to the Party, not to the nation, their elected jobs, or to their constituents.
