    I suspect those 'doctors' were the real fakes.

    And what do the notes in Wisconsin have to do with the Senators going to Illinois anyway?

    So is that YES then haymarket?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, that was a nice, objective intro!

    Hell no, they should not be paid. They should, however, be impeached in absentia.

    Re: Should Wisconsin Democrats be paid while they hide out in Illinois?

    A very rigged and biased poll.
    We need a better more honest people.
    No vote, instead the usual rant.
    I'd like to hear from two civil, intelligent honest Wisconsinites, one in the union , the other, a competitor.
    I trust neither the conservatives nor the liberals.
    Those who lie and spin the truth should have their moths washed out in a public square.
    It seems as if the cons are the political party for the wealthy and the libs for the minorities.
    No-one represents the huge middle class.
    I do NOT favor granting so much power to the people - this scares me, a mob cannot be trusted.
    The correct course of action is for ALL to sacrifice, if this is necessary.
    It is WRONG for this governor of Wisconsin to expect one group to sacrifice and for his group to do nothing.
    As I say, we need a better people.

    This scene could be renamed, "Brave Wisconsin Democrats"

    A hard line approach/philosophy.
    From Mubarack's playbook ?
    But I'd love to read the absolute truth on this matter ...

    What's so hardline about calling the 16 Democrats who are hiding in Illinois cowards?

    Mubarak playbook? Link please.... and there's no such thing as absolute truth. Is that out of the Mein Kampf playbook --- see how stupid that sounds? You comment sounded more stupid.


    Edit: I didn't know Mubarak was a Monty Python fan either. What's his favorite skit - can you ask him next time you talk to him?

    Unbelievable, two "liberals" agreeing with a "hard line" conservative.
    But, at this point in time, could we agree that the Democrats are in the minority and the GOP should be ruling the day - is this not democracy ?....majority rules ?
    Has the time and need for unions passed ?
    Should the unions modernize their role ??
    I was a United Steelworker during the 70s, to the 90s. Even as the union did help me, I am neither pro nor anti-union, but conditions today may be different, we do not always progress forward.
    The "tea-bagging conservatives" as an example.

    No they absolutely not be paid since they are not working. However, I think in some ways they are still doing the right thing.

    Do you say YES then? I've already got the avatar made and ready.
    I am not going to be saddled with somebody who has no chance of winning re-election if they are not on the ballot. That is ridiculous. People can die. People can have health problems.
    People can have family problems. People can have financial problems. People can have personal problems. If they are not on the ballot, I will not be saddled with them as that is unfair and gives you an unfair advantage.

    We bet on those before the electorate. I say that a majority of those who Dems who left will be re-elected when they stand before the public for re-election.
