Wisconsin Unions and Democrats Lose as Senate Voted Wednesday Night to End Nearly all Collective Bargaining Rights from Public Workers
It has finally happened … the Wisconsin Senate passed the Union bill that strips nearly all collective bargaining rights for public workers, without the presence of the Democrat “Fleebaggers. As reported by the AP, the union bill passed 18-1.
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’s Finally over as the fleebagger are left out in the cold, or Illinois.

The reaction from Unions … from J-S Online, AFL-CIO says GOP used ‘nuclear option’. However, it is king of hard for those on the LEFT to cry fowl, when 14 Democrat “fleebaggers”ran away from their jobs as Wisconsin Senators and hid out in Illinois. “Rigged the vote”? Who was it that tried to circumvent the democrat process by hiding.
Said Neuenfeldt: “Republicans have exercised the nuclear option to ram through their bill attacking Wisconsin’s working families in the dark of night. (Gov.) Walker and the Republicans acted in violation of state open meetings laws, and tonight’s events have demonstrated they will do or say anything to pass their extreme agenda that attacks Wisconsin’s working families.”
