"The Senate Democrats have had three weeks to debate this bill and were
offered repeated opportunities to come home, which they refused,"
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said in a statement. "In order to move the
state forward, I applaud the Legislature's action today to stand up to
the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the
budget and reform the government. The action today will help ensure
Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to
create 250,000 new jobs."



I would like to know just how Walker thinks that stripping them of their rights is going to create 250,000 jobs!

I just got back from Neenah. There were about 100 people at this protest. Boy, is it cold and windy today. There were protests around the state that started at 9 am. I hope to get some pictures from this event so I can post them here. I didn't bring a camera. I gave my contact information to a lady who was there and hope she will send some of her pictures to me.

Faux News is reporting that the protesters in Wisconsin have been smashing capitol windows and "where is the outrage, can you imagine if it were the tea partyers doing this."

If there really are windows being smashed then I'll bet that means that they have sent in the troublemakers to make the protesters look bad. Smashing windows is their standard method of operation every time they send them in.

I watched the video several times...does ANYONE hear the vote in the background? I can't!! They acknowledged the Democratic Senator, let him talk, and then I can only guess that in the background they voted? This can't believe this happened in my home State....
Crying or Very sad

Hey Flowergirl
It was a Dem House Rep who spoke and all of the Republican Senators voted yes except for 1 it was Dale Schultz. Of course the right is calling him a coward.... So very sad..

Yeah, the video clip they showed with it showed people climbing through the window to get into the capitol, but there was nothing showing it was smashed, someone from inside could have just opened it.

It's all good. I just thought I'd let you know. Wink I just posted a short video clip of the republicans leaving the capital last night after their vote. They left in Madison Metro buses.

It looks like the senators were on their way to a fund raiser in DC.

Republicans plan big fundraiser in D.C.

"State Republicans are planning to hold a big fundraiser at the offices of a major lobbying fim in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

Supporters are asked to give at least $1,000 to the state Republican Party's federal account to attend the event at the BGR Group's offices in D.C. The cost is $2,500 to sponsor and $5,000 to host the fundraiser."

At least the Neenah rally made it into the local newspaper. Wink There were quite a few video cameras there. I have no idea who they work for.

This is a must read. It is published by the group Evergreen Freedom Foundation and is titled "Model Legislation for Union Workers' Protection". I wonder who is taking ideas from this and other similar documents.

"No dues, fees, assessments or any other automatic
payroll deductions by public employers from public
employee payroll compensation shall be allowed for
transmission to any public employee organization,
any intermediary, or a private individual, other than
for primary and supplemental pension plans, life,
health and other employee benefits, or contributions
made to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations through a
workplace giving program."
