Wisconsin GOP Rams Anti-Union Bill Through
The Wisconsin Senate voted Wednesday night to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers, approving an explosive proposal that had rocked the state and unions nationwide after Republicans discovered a way to bypass the chamber's missing Democrats.

All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker's "budget-repair bill" - a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall.

The Senate requires a quorum to take up any measures that spend money. But Republicans on Wednesday separated from the legislation the proposal to curtail union rights, which spends no money, and a special committee of lawmakers from both the Senate and Assembly approved the bill a short time later.

iagree.gif It's not even about the budget, because the unions agreed to all fiscal cut backs, Wanker said 'No' and wouldn't stop until he stripped away all rights.

Be a most interesting day in WI today.

Tip of the iceberg, people are pissed about multiple issues and are tired of seeing their rights stripped away by an out of control government.

"Tonight, Scott Walker made it crystal clear to the people of Wisconsin -- and the entire nation-- the extent he will go to in order to pay back billionaires such as the Koch Brothers and bad actor corporations that want to destroy the middle class. This legislative gimmick proves Walker's attack on the middle class was never about balancing the budget; it was always about stripping workers of a voice and rewarding the cronies who helped finance his campaign."

“It was so important for Walker to move this legislation in the dead of the night, that he and Republican legislators may have illegally denied the people of Wisconsin their right to adequate notice to be involved in this process. In the end, Scott Walker turned a deaf ear to the tens of thousands of courageous nurses, environmentalists, students, faith leaders and others who stood up for a brighter vision of Wisconsin that values fairness, rewards hard work, and provides quality services to those who need them."

RE: Wisconsin GOP Rams Anti-Union Bill Through
Going to be a general strike. Those're some angry people.

edit

The ruling class is
telling working people: “We do not negotiate. We
demand. You must accept our terms.”
This signifies, in effect, the end of compromise between
the classes. The growing recognition of this political
reality among workers lies behind the rising sentiment
for a general strike.

Those TSA workers...like cops I guess they are too close to knuckle dragging to score a real job. This is conditioning to accept all kinds of intrusive privacy invasion, if it doesn't stop soon within 10 years there will be cameras in our homes.

Quote:Within an hour and a half of the vote, the protesters had seized the building's lower floors, creating an ear-splitting free-for-all of pounding drums, screaming chants, horns and whistles. Police gave up guarding the building entrances and retreated to the third floor.

The state Department of Administration, which operates the building, estimated the crowd at about 7,000 people. There were no reports of violence as of late Wednesday evening. DOA spokesman Tim Donovan said no one had been arrested as of late Wednesday evening. By midnight dozens of protesters had bedded down in the building's corridors and alcoves. Some slept in front of the office of Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, R-Horicon.

Donovan said officials decided not to try to clear the building because they want to avoid confrontation.

"The more talking we can do, the less this devolves into something unpleasant," he said.

The bill would require public sector workers to contribute more to their pensions and health care, in what would amount to an 8 percent pay cut for the workers, on average. It also would prohibit most of them from collectively bargaining for their working conditions.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker, the plan's chief author, says the bill will help fill the state's current $137 million shortfall and a $3.6 billion hole in the state's upcoming two-year budget. He said limiting collective bargaining rights for public workers will give local governments more flexibility to handle deep cuts in state aid.

Update: Wisconsin Capitol locked down as state Assembly takes up bill

Throngs of protesters gathered in Madison, Wisconsin, Thursday, pounding on the windows of the state legislature one day after the Senate passed a controversial bill meant to curtail the bargaining rights of most state workers.

Their actions prompted Capitol police to close the building and forcibly remove demonstrators inside who refused to leave.

"These arrogant actions are what I had a nightmare about last night," said Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, a Democrat, who called the lockdown an "outrage."

WISCONSIN REPUBLICANS RECEIVE DEATH THREATS- Justice Dept. Investigating

The tolerant left strikes again…
It’s not just Governor Scott Walker who is receiving death threats.
Several Republican Senators received this threat last night by some violent leftist fool.
