Wisconsin lawmakers

I find it amazing that the Democrats in Wisconsin have fled the state to avoid allowing a quorum in the government so that a vote on the bill to restrict public unions can occur. They should be fired for deserting their jobs. What other profession allows you to not show up and still keep your job? Oh yeah, union employees.

Actually, they need to start a recall of these politicians. I was so amused this morning. I heard on the Stephanie Miller radio show someone saying that the Republican lawmakers needed to be recalled. Let’s see, the voters elected Republicans that ran on a platform of restricting the unions and have placed up for a vote a bill to do that very thing. The Democrats flee the state to shut down the government and somehow we should be upset with the Republicans. We truly are living in a Bizarro universe.
