Booooiiinnnggg!

It is done. The donkeys lose their attempt to keep their biggest donor flush with tax payer cash. The winners? The tax payers of Wisconsin, and the people of every other state where we will soon see similar actions to curtail the massive debt the lavish benefits and pay for public union members are costing the tax payers as state governments realize they have to end the gravy train or face dire financial consequences, Not to mention pain at the ballet box from citizens that are pissed they are being robbed by demcorats and their big donor buddies. Even the public union members that now will have the option to not pay the unions the ridiculous dues are winners. Here is the biased AP language:

MADISON, Wis. (AP)—At least two dozen protesters spent the night just outside the Wisconsin state Assembly chamber in anticipation of a late Thursday morning vote on explosive union rights legislation that passed the Senate after Republicans outmaneuvered their missing Democratic counterparts and pushed through the bill.

The extraordinary turn of events late Wednesday set up Thursday’s perfunctory vote on the measure that would strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from most public workers. Once the bill passes the Assembly, it heads to Republican Gov. Scott Walker for his signature.

About time! It is pathetic how these crooks were able to hold the state hostage, cost it $165 million in extra expenditures that could only be balanced by removing 1500 from the pay rolls – and if unions so cared about their employees, they sure as hell wouldn’t be allowing this massive layoff if there was an alternative, but as we have repeatedly mentioned, this is about the union bosses making huge money while using elected demcorats to rob the state’s tax payers in return for big campaign contributions – and in general showed us that the left only wants civility if it shuts up the other side. And while this AP piece sure shows the angry biased left’s opinion, without emphasizing the fact that the state of Wisconsin was on its way to join other such liberal paradises run by the democrats and their public union buddies in massive deficit woes and then likely bankruptcy as what forced the governor’s hand, we have the following:

The bill had been stymied after all 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to pass it. Walker introduced it to plug a $137 million budget shortfall. The Senate requires a quorum of 20 to take up any measures that spend money. But a special committee of lawmakers from the Senate and Assembly voted late Wednesday afternoon to take all the spending measures out of the legislation and the Senate approved it minutes later, 18-1.

It is far more than a measly $137 billion, which only applies to this fiscal year, but is used to confound the issue and lead people to believe there is no fiscal problem. But those of us that don’t restrict our information to DNC talking points, know that next year that deficit jumps to some $3 trillion plus. Anyway, the cowardly demcorats ran away and spit in the face of the democratic process. Funny how liberals only seem to love democracy when it suits them, and otherwise they pine for government like that of China as we have often heard them comment when it doesn’t huh? This was done to buy time and allow the massive DNC propaganda apparatus to confound people with bullshit, so they could then make Walker back down. And that was, contrary to the lies that they are fighting for the rights of the middle class or the public union employees, specifically to prevent Walker from getting what he wanted so they could keep their union buddies flush in tax payer cash and in turn reap the huge campaign contributions this brings them. You can’t get lower than that IMO. Luckily Walker stood strong, and they found a way to pass this bill and stop the tax payers from making the union bosses and their democrat buddies rich. So it is no surprise that their defense of this practice was to say:

“Scott Walker and the Republicans’ ideological war on the middle class and working families is now indisputable,” Neuenfeldt said.

Yeah sure. You collectivists and your public union buddies are robbing the tax payers, and doubly so the union members that are forced to pay out a huge chunk of their paycheck to the unions to keep the bosses living large and donating large to demcorats, but the people waging warfare are those that want to end that? Heh! Bizzaro world. Even though you will not hear the MSM or DNC say so, the people won this one.
