Wisconsin Republicans on Sunday upped the pressure on Democrats who fled to Illinois to return home and vote on an anti-union bill, with the governor calling them obstructionists and a GOP lawmaker threatening to convene without them.
Gov. Scott Walker said the 14 minority Democrats who left Madison on Thursday were failing to do their jobs by “hiding out” in another state. And Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said his chamber would meet Tuesday to act on non-spending bills and confirm some of the governor’s appointees even if the Democrats don’t show up — a scenario that should outrage their constituents.

All I want to say is that when the Democrats held the power advantage in Congress over the last two years, they did as they pleased. They shoved Obamacare down the throats of the Republicans and our country and laughed while they were doing it. Now that these Wisconsin Democrats see that they can’t stop the legislative process LEGALLY and win their point by debate what do they do? THEY FLEE THE STATE LIKE THE COWARDS THEY ARE. Imagine if the House Republicans did that to President Obama? Holy HELL!
These coward lawmakers are being PAID by the taxpayers to do a job and they refuse because they can’t get their way. No maybe we can understand why we are in such financial disarray! Like these idiot teachers they should be FIRED! I’d send the State Police to track them down and drag them back. Our Democracy and the rule of law is more important than these selfish children.
