  • LOL I was just reading this. See I told you the Dems wanted to shut down the government. LOL Guess it isn't only federal either.
    I'm sorry, but I just can't feel sorry for these people. When did State workers and teachers become so much better than the rest of us?
    I'm embarrassed for them having mass riots over this. They say they want to compromise? Well I think if you have the choice of paying for a small part of their insurance and retirement or losing jobs, that's a pretty good compromise.
    It really has everything to do with the unions not wanting to lose the power they have. You really see what unions can and will do to keep their power. This would not be happening if the union was not organizing it.

  • I refuse to follow the WI story. I really can only handle only so much Democratic destruction in one month, and frankly February is plum filled already.

  • All I keep thinking about is how the Republicans would have been marinated, skewered and thrown on the flames had they just not shown up for a vote on Health Care.


    I think that if an elected official fails to perform their job duties as stipulated by their state, they should be dismissed and a special election should take place.

  • I am a Democrat. But I find this behavior unconscionable. If you are elected to do a job, DO IT.

  • They are taking a stand with their constituents...


    I posted in another group ...I thought if was funny that the COPS were LOOKING for them! lol


    IMO, its silly...but they are doing so in order that the bill cannot be voted on....but it WILL get voted on, they cannot stay away forever.....


    So, its a gesture to their constituents
