Anti-Union Legislation Causes Indiana DemonRats To Go Into Hiding
Hey, all you folks in Indiana, DON”T RE-ELECT THESE CHILDISH MORONS! They are stealing your money and screwing you over, all the while laughing behind your backs. They don’t care about you; they only care about pleasuring their communist union overlords:
Indiana Democrats trigger Statehouse showdown over anti-union legislation
Seats on one side of the Indiana House were nearly empty today as House Democrats departed the the state rather than vote on anti-union legislation.
A source tells the Indianapolis Star that Democrats are headed to Illinois, though it was possible some also might go to Kentucky. They need to go to a state with a Democratic governor to avoid being taken into police custody and returned to Indiana.
With only 58 legislators present, there was no quorum present to do business. The House needs 67 of its members to be present.
House Speaker Brian Bosma said he did not know yet whether he would ask the Indiana State Police to compel the lawmakers to attend, if they can be found.
Today’s fight was triggered by Republicans pushing a bill that would bar unions and companies from negotiating a contract that requires non-union members to kick-in fees for representation. It’s become the latest in what is becoming a national fight over Republican attempts to eliminate or limit collective bargaining.
House Minority Leader B. Patrick Bauer, D-South Bend, “has taken a page out of the Wisconsin Senate playbook apparently” by keeping his caucus in hiding, Bosma said. “They are shirking the job that they were hired to do.”
In Wisconsin, Senate Democrats have fled to Illinois to deny Republicans the quorum they need to pass legislation limiting collective bargaining for many public employees.
Asked at what point he would call in the Indiana State Police to attempt to round up the Democrats, Bosma said: “We’ll see how the day goes.”
The last time a prolonged walk-out happened in the Indiana legislature was in the mid-1990s, when Republicans were in control and tried to draw new legislative district maps, eliminating a district that likely would have been a Democrat one, in the middle of the decade. Democrats won that standoff, staying away several days until Republicans dropped the plan.
You see, the DemonRats are like a bunch of babies who scream and cry until the adults finally give in. Well, here’s an idea for the Republicans: Don’t give in! What’s the worst that could happen? A bunch of handcuffed DemonRats, perhaps? That sounds like a winner to me!Explore posts in the same categories: politics
