Wisconsin Dems looking for a Saddam-like hidey-hole

via freakingnews

In all my years I have never heard of such a thing as one party of lawmakers fleeing a state and hiding in a neighboring state for political advantage. Is is so difficult for teacher to face ponying a little cash for their pensions and health insurance?  Is it so hard for the government worker to face the difficulties that the private sector employee has been putting up with for years?  What would our founders think of the Dems' cynical ploy. Is it true that Wisconsin law prevents recall before the first years has been served in office? Could they be charged with abandonment? Dereliction of duty? This action is wrong in so many ways.  They outta be ashamed.
Below is a video of the shameful fugitives via Shawsblog if you haven't already seen it:

The dems, like the rats they are, are hiding in their holes because they're not getting what they want. I wish this is the first time I've heard of this, but it happened in texas in 06 when the dems didn't like the new districting borders (I guess it wasn't gerrymandered enough for the illegals to get what they want as they claimed it disenfranchised the "latino" vote) where they scattered in all direction hiding in OK, AK, and LA. Considering that each member of the teachers union averages about $114,000 a year (demonstrating how these union are mainly run by the administration because show me ONE teacher that makes that much) they're not scrapping for peanuts and for what? Because they need to pay for some of their benefits. when I was teaching I had to pay for half of mine, and the governor isn't even asking for even that much. Oh, for those that wondered what happened in Texas, the dems got a Clinton appointee to declare the districts unconstitutional.

Madmath1 pretty much summoned it up for Texas. The fleeing Wisconsin Dems should be asked how's that hope and change working out for you. After all, the fleeing Texas Dems didn't have citizens from other states tracking them down and telling them go to work.

The REAL question and perhaps the only question is how the Wisconsin voters feel about their legislature running rather than doing what they were elected to do.

AND whether Wisconsin voters want to make up their $3.6 billion deficit with radically higher taxes. That is the alternative. You can triple the taxes they pay to make up the shortfall -- or restructure. But those are the two choices and neither is easy. The governor took the restructure route because it can be done NOW and will ultimately save teacher's jobs. ---But that's not how Obama or the SEIU thugs see it and it's telling for the future of our NATION if Obama remains in office in 2012.

Democrat slime slithers onward.

On legality: Wisconsin may very well have a case against the Dems through State Statute 946.12.

Only budgetary bills need a 3/5 quorum (Article VIII, Section 8 (Finance), WI Constitution) - anything else only needs a 50%+1 majority (Article IV, Section 7). The Repubs could run a bill ending collective bargaining and decertifying all public employees and not need the Dems at all. After that, they'd just need to run a bill figuring out pay and benefits for state employees.

What the Dems did here in Wisconsin just goes to prove their level of maturity - somewhere around age, oh, 2?

They need to be RECALLED. It's too bad it's not possible. As I bring up quite often, Democraps are COWARDS!

Debbie said...

Love that first image, ha. I think they should be fired, the teachers AND the politicians who walked off their jobs.

Right Truth

"My job is to delay the vote..."

They called the Tea Party a bunch of radicals for legally trying to delay the healthcare vote. What do we call a bunch of state senators for illegally trying to stall a vote?

They are literally running away from an election. This tells me all I need to know about the immoral and corrupt Dems.

Fire the teachers if they're not back to work in a couple days.

I see a war between union members and non-union members brewing. There are going to be class wars, and this may be the first to happen.

Their union leaders screwed them with the ponzai scheme and now they want us to pay the price. Not going to happen as long as we have sane people to vote for.
