    Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job - FoxNews.com

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, called on the 14 Senate Democrats who fled the state instead of voting on a controversial anti-union bill, to return and do their jobs.

    The boycott forced the state Senate to adjourn for the day without a vote on the bill.

    I feel any elected official that flees his/her jurisdiction to avoid having to do their jobs should be fired.

    I agree. There is zero excuse for such unprofessional behavior!

    I don't get it. If they don't like the bill, can't they just vote "no?" Don't tell me that this is another puerile "quorum" sit out. Can't get their way so they're gonna shut down the government. Totally lame, no matter which party is doing it.

    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.

    I don't know much about this situation, but these people are paid to represent the people. If they can't show up and perform their job then they should get fired like anyone else.

    It's about time that democrats stopped being so spineless. This is a good sign. Walker's bill needs to be destroyed and he needs to be recalled.

    This has nothing to do for "the rich". Dude spending is too high and these union members dont deserve a pension. Not in this economy. They need to do what every other human should do..... prepare for after retirement. This isnt a corporate greed issue. This is a tax payer issue. Its not like these workers are suffering because of their pay. Hell techers dont even work the whole year and they get paid more than ME! Screw THAT!

    I think we need a new variant of Godwin's Law: Bush's Law. Seven posts into a discussion about Wisconsin politics and Oops, There It is!!!
