One of the things that always drives me nuts is when state legislatures or the congress appoint “commissions” to handle tough problems. Since every single one of those people spend a small fortune begging the voters for the office and responsibility it seems odd after begging for a job to be afraid to do it.
In Wisconsin today the democrats are proving to be profiles in cowardice:
Democratic senators apparently fled the state to prevent a vote on Gov. Scott Walker’s budget-repair bill, which would cut public employee union collective bargaining rights and require them to contribute to pensions and health care.
Law enforcement has been sent to find missing Democratic lawmakers,
Remember these are the same people that campaigned for the right to conduct the people’s business. Meanwhile the protesters/ teachers opposing the governor’s plans to restrain spending are not covering themselves in glory either. But they are covering the capital with trash.
What a difference between them and the tea party. Just to remind you:
And remember that call for civility? Apparently these democrats don’t:
If you want to know why tea parties poll better than unions, this is why.
As as far as the fleeing state representatives, if they don’t want to do their job, resign! Simple as that. What cowards.
Expect the MSM to play minstrels for these fools
Update: You’ve got to be kidding me:
UPDATE: TEA PARTY WINS!!
The Rockford Tea Party just chased the Wisconsin democrats out of the Best Western. They just boarded their bus and are leaving the Best Western! Run, Libs! Run!
These are supposed to be leaders and lawmakers? You can’t actually make this stuff up can you?
