    If there is another thread - please merge it...couldn't believe I couldn't find one.

    After 59 hours straight of Democrat speeches...bill passes.
    Then the Democrats complained they hadn't been heard....now that's funny.

    Mostly Symbolic, but glad we now have a focus on Wisconsin state politics.

    And now, the heat is on for the MIA Dems. They had some buffer as long as the Bill was in the House, but now that it is on to the Senate, their ability to hide becomes even more critical.

    They are going to have to step up their game, or acquiesce. All that is needed now is to find one in the State, deliver him to the Senate building, and call a vote, and the Bill is passed.

    Or......

    Recall petitions are on the horizon for all of the Dems in hiding. Longer, slower process.....but it is a remedy available if they're REALLY good at hiding.

    Going to get VERY interesting now, IMO.

    "If I can't get my way, I'm leaving the damned State! I can do that because I'm a Democrat."... These words were overheard in the Senate men's restroom by a menber of the cleaning crew shortly before Democratic Senators all disappeared from Wisconsin.

    Then Statists should embrace it. After all? Statists cling to symbolism over substance as part of their doctrine, no?

    The Republicans acted like thugs and closed voting as soon as they had a majority. Most of the Democrats were unable to cast a vote.
