Trouble in the Cheese State

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is trying to pass a bill that would severely cute the power of unions in his state. He claims that doing so would help alleviate the $3.6 billion state defecate. The bill has caused outrage from state employees and the result has been massive protests against the bill.
Those are the facts. To be honest, I do not have a strong opinion on the matter. Not being from Wisconsin, I don’t know any of the details about the measure. So why post about it you ask? One detail of this news story caught my attention. 14 Democrat State Senators have left the state to avoid having to vote on the bill. With their absence, the senate can not reach their minimum quorum to vote on the bill. That’s a shitty thing to do. How much of a douche bag do you have to be to skip town rather then vote. Oh…and by the way…voting on bills in THEIR JOB. Isn’t this why people go into politics? It will be interesting to see what will happen when they return and eventually face re-election. I suspect this will come back to bite them in the butt. There is a Public Relations rep out there who will be paid a ton of cash to do some damage control come November.
