    It won't really mean anything if they do not enact legislation to weaken union power, until that happens the democrats can claim that the republicans won't do anything because they learned their lesson after losing a seat or two.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They already have, the unions failed to overturn the senate. The only thing left is the recall of scott walker, which if they lose, it will be their defeat.

    But, still not the upset that the Leftists promised.

    Didn't a judge overturn previous legislation that weakened union power? If this is truly a victory then they should enact legislation that will stand up to legal challenges.
