Wisconsin Teachers Skip Work, Bill Taxpayers to Protest Again
Remember - these teachers called in sick - ie, they're getting paid - to protest a move toward equity between what those in the private sector receive for benefits and what the chosen ones who work for the government have been able to acquire unfairly from the corrupt Democratic Party.
A group of Democratic Wisconsin lawmakers blocked passage of a sweeping anti-union bill Thursday, refusing to show up for a vote and then abruptly leaving the state in an effort to force Republicans to the negotiating table.
The socialists would rather shut down the legislature than face reality - using taxpayer money to buy the loyalty of public sector unions has to end!
As ever-growing throngs of protesters filled the Capitol for a third day, the 14 Democrats disappeared around midday, just as the Senate was about to begin debating the measure, which would eliminate collective bargaining for most public employees.
Walker, who took office just last month, called on Democrats to return out of respect for the democratic process and the institution of the Legislature.
"Their actions by leaving the state and hiding from voting are disrespectful to the hundreds of thousands of public employees who showed up to work today and the millions of taxpayers they represent," Walker said.
Republicans hold a 19-14 majority in the Senate, but they need at least one Democrat to be present before voting on the bill.
