these punk ass democrap reps are running like chickens on a farm. grow a pare and get your sorry asses back to work and stand accountable for what needs to be done assholes. Cut the budget> teachers are way over paid and need to share the burden with the private sector.

The senators took the only path they could under the current administration and legislative body to ensure the proposed legislation would receive an honest, open review by their constituents. Not cowardly but practical!


I live at the farthest corner of the country, but I couldn't be prouder of my brothers and sisters making a stand to protect the rights and dignity of working Americans. This assault on the basic principle that an honest working man deserves a fair day's pay is a malignant cancer that must be stopped. Stand strong Wisconsin.


Donnie, evidently they didn't get get paid enough to teach you how to spell or capitalize. You must have also miss the class on the Democratic process, where people get to discuss, negotiation and compromise. Dictator Walker and his henchmen are not allowing this process.

Way to go. Thank you for taking a stand for us. The senators are slowing the process so more people can know all the facts. People stand up and be heard.


What a bunch of cowards these democrats are! They are paid to do a job and they are not doing it. Running away is an insult to the democratic process. The voters have spoken--by electing a majority of republicans. Now the unions are trying to take away my voice. Shame on them. God bless Scott Walker and his resolve to actually do what he promised in his campaign.
