Wisconsin Senate Democrats are acting like children. They cannot deprive the people of Wisconsin their right to an up or down vote on legislation whether they like what they see or not. If this were Republican Senators protesting a piece of legislation championed by a Democrat Governor and Democrat-controlled Legislature and left the state for days, we can all bet our money that all hell would break lose. State Democrats would be calling for the immediate arrest of all the AWOL Republicans and complain that they are disallowing the people of the state an up or down vote. Democrats would be complaining left and right, calling for punishments, and scolding doctors who were giving teachers fraudulent sick notes and depriving our children from an education so they could protest in Madison for days at a time. They would want the teachers to lose their jobs and possibly their pensions, and call for the doctors to lose their medical licenses.
State Republicans have been remaining civil since this debacle began. They’re standing by and are refusing to negotiate with the protesters and their Democrat criminals regarding what should have been done long ago: liberal unions should have never been on the receiving end of taxpayer money, and they should be responsible for donating to their own pensions. If they don’t like it, tough beans. If they want to retire and expect to live off of a pension, they should be collecting their own money and not the money of hardworking taxpayers.
Recall elections should be called and held for all 14 Senate Democrats. They should also be punished for breaking the law regarding their action of depriving the citizens from their right to an up or down vote. The doctors involved in handing out fraudulent sick notes to non-sick teachers should also be disciplined by the possibility of losing their jobs and medical licenses. Those who break the law should be punished. This issue shouldn’t even be open to debate.
Wisconsin Republicans will pass this anti-union legislation, whether the whining protesters like it or not. Governor Scott Walker will also sign the legislation into law after it is successfully passed. In the end, the Republicans and their voters/supporters in this great state will be the victors.
Democrats can continue their tantrum, but they will never win. Contribute to your own freaking pensions.
