    no doubt you resent teachers make more than you.....people contributing to mankind deserve MUCH more.......on the other hand, how much do the gop babies such as those sitting on their ASSES speculating on gasoline futures deserve? apparently shills for the privlidged argue these miscreants create "wealth"

    Also, attacking unions doesn't even fix the budget deficit. In fact, it doesn't even make up for Walker's tax cuts. It's a big lie to claim that this is all about "balancing the budget".

    If they had any actual backbone they would've voted "NO" instead of fleeing like pussies.

    They need 20 senators present in order to have a vote. 19 republicans are all voting for the bill. If no democrats sit at the vote then they cannot pass the bill. If they sit then the bill will pass. Obviously we don't want the bill to pass, so I support them boycotting the vote in order to force concession.

    I am not into this whole "Survivorish" government system. Show up and do your job. If every republican votes the same way and every democrat votes the opposite, then we have the most idiotic democrats and republicans in office.

    Maybe if these guys could get brains and vote based off of logic instead of whatever talking point their party is spewing at the moment we could get something done.

    For the record, I am liberal and I am pro-unions, but this is just stupid.

    And somebody should tell those stupid protesters that, duh, the state cannot afford to pay all of you, so either you take a cut in your fat, union-inflated salaries or a whole bunch of you spoiled fools (who should be damned happy just to have a job in this economy) are going to join the ranks of the unemployed.

    I just hate this "I've got mine, I don't care what happens to them" attitude. It sucks.
    Because after the midterms, there aren't enough Democrat votes to kill the bill. They know it and the only other option they have is to skeedaddle.
