Will dems be recalled in WI?

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Well, those 14 defiant Wisconsin senate Democrats better not assume their jobs are safe. At this hour, some risk getting booted. Some Wisconsin citizens are upset that the 14 Democrats ran away to another state rather than stay home and vote on the budget. Some groups are now chanting recall, and our next guest is headlining one of the groups. Dan Hunt is chairman of Taxpayers to Recall Robert Wirch, one of the 14 missing senate Democrats. Good evening, sir.

This is one of at least three recalls being organized.

  • Dems who fled are cowards... If they wanted to hold strong to their beliefs then protest WITH the unions.. Risk getting arrested on principle and make a real stand... Don't go off running to some hotel in the next state and hide like a ninny.... F'n waste and disgrace to their party and their 'beliefs'..

  • – collapse
    I am from Wisconsin and NOT signing any recall for the Fab 14, but WILL sign one for the recall of Govenor Walker. The Fab 14 may not be in Madison but they are working. Walker is using underhanded tactics to get his bill signed into law so his special interest groups can benefit. Walker is not willing to cooperate, talk to anyone and he passed part of the bill while the senate democrats were on a break. Some of his own Republicans didn't get to vote. That is WRONG!!!!! I am thankful for my Fab 14 that are fighting for the citizens of Wisconsin.

    Also NEVER believe anything that Fox News reports, they made MAJOR contributions to the Republican party and Scott Walker.

  • Thats ok tyfry my two cousins and aunt are also in Wisconsin and they are signing on a recall. So you figure you may want Walker taken down, but he was voted in by the people. Most of the same people are willing to sign a recall on those who dont want to do their jobs,.

  • I know many Republicans who voted for Walker that want him recalled. Yes, WI has a problem but Walkers way will affect EVERYONE. Boys and Girls Club and Big Brothers Big Sisters will close if his bill goes through. WI will lose MILLION in Federal funding, jobs will be lost. Teachers are being laid off as we speak, fire fighters, police will be next. Prison guards are threatening to strike. This bill will affect ALL states because WALKER is starting a nationwide destruction of uniions. There are many nonprofits that will be affected because of this bill. WALKER is refusing to talk to anyone and it is going to be his way no matter who gets hurt. While he isn't doing anything to help. He isn't giving up his free mansion, car, cell phone, security, life long pension and medical. He expects state workers to get give up everything while he gives up nothing.

    And the senators are doing their job, just not in Madison.

    But I don't believe one word of that.

  • The answer really depends on whether the organizers can get enough signatures in the districts of each of those legislators. Hunt says "we have several" signatures. Considering he needs close to 14,000, several ain't gonna cut it. Is he being coy, or covering a lack of enthusiasm for the recall in Wirch's district?

    I have seen a lot of recall efforts that have failed due to a lack of signatures. And I've seen recalls that SHOULD have failed but got signatures because people acted out of anger rather than thought.

  • For every dollar into their pension that teachers in Wisconsin pay, the government there matches it with 47 dollars!

    Sorry, taxpayers around the country no longer find that type thing acceptable.

    It isn't sustainable.

    Especially when so many in the public sector must fund their own retirements or go without.
