    flip it around.. and guess what the GOP reaction would be.
    imagine if a newly elected Democratic governor and legislature proposed to deal with a budget deficit by first raising unemployment benefits and then pushing through a big corporate tax increase for all but the Democratic-leaning tech sector. For good measure, the package would also contain a ban on corporations making political donations without getting the permission of each shareholder, lest they use their power to repeal the tax increase and push the budget out of balance

    guess what the gop reaction would be

    I have no idea how the GOP would react, but I can say with certainty that you are going to be in a race to the bottom of the barrel of idiot posters on USMB if you keep going like this.

    How do you know how the GOP would react?

    Did the GOP run for the hills when healthcare was to be voted on?

    Did they reun for the hills when the stimulus would be voted on?

    And besides.....the Governor is doing exactly what he said he would do if he were elected. No surprises here whatseover...

    And if DEM governor won with the platform as you desccribed above, then I would not see a reason to complain...the poeple have spoken.

    You do realize, of course, what is going on here....it was like proposition 8 in California...

    The elections were fine with everyone...until one side lost in the elction....then those people did not want to go along with the results of the election.....

    I would call out sick then demand that you pay for my time off.

    then I would take the mic and demand that there be blood in the streets.

    sadly, that would be healine news and I would be denounced as a criminal.

    unlike now.

    wait...

    I would call in sick and then add to my lie by presenting a phony doctors note confirming I was sick so I can get paid for my time off at the cost of the taxpayer that I so dearly despise

    He asked the reader to guess what it would be.

    Didn't the GOP in congress have the filibuster to rely on?? Since you are comparing state to fed is there a similar option available to those in the wisconsin state legislature

    I know that is what he and many on the right are saying but can you quote and cite a specific speech in which walker made exactly what is in the bill part of his campaign promises??

    and yet the right opposed obama at every turn despite how he won and tried to do what he campaign on. Funny how reality kicks you in the teeth.

    Huh?? It would be one thing IF walker was proposing to strip ALL unions of their collective bargaining rights but he is choosing to only go after those that tend to support democratic candidates. That proves that this is purely political and the budget is just a means to an end.
