Did they think about this before they left?

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.

Senate Democrats acknowledged that the 19 Republicans could pass any item that doesn’t spend state money in their absence. The budget repair bill they have been blocking requires a quorum of 20 senators to pass, while other measures require only a simple majority of the chamber’s 33 members

    You mean the conservatives might act like whiny babies? Anything Walker does at this point, that appears to be a power grab will lose him his next election.

  • Obviously they didnt think it out and acted out emotionally. They need to do their jobs or quit so someone else can come in and do the job the people elected them to do.

  • They obviously didn't care or they wouldn't have run away from their duty to the people of Wisconsin. They should be removed for failure to do the required job and new replacements that need a job, put in.
