In the wee hours this morning, legislators in Madison Wisconsin had a vote. After 61 hours of debate, they moved to vote. By a vote of 51-17 they sent a bill to Gov. Walker that will significantly reduce the collective bargaining powers, read extortion capabilities, of the public sector unions. Naturally the Democrats were not happy that debate was finally closed off and a vote called. But 61 hours? That seems to be far more debate than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid allowed over Obamacare before they rammed it down everyone's throat.
I wonder if the missing Democrats will now run back to Madison? Their strike has failed to stop public union reform. And besides, they have to physically collect their paychecks and no Democrat likes being cut off from the public trough.
And surprise surprise, the first comment on the UPI article is from a progressive-socialist named MarcusMACV. And Marcus fails to bring anything worthwhile to the discussion, instead he attacks the intelligence of Gov. Walker and then ends with a tirade attacking former VP Dick Cheney. He obviously feels we are too stupid to know what is good for us. What a way to win friends and influence people Marcus. Not.
