Unions Strike Back, Dems Take Sides

We all know that through their proxies in the Democrat Party the public employee unions have halted legislative action in Wisconsin.  But now Indiana can’t move similar legislation either!  In both cases, a specific number of Democrat legislators have literally fled their respective states to those controlled by Democrat governors to postpone their inevitable fetching as long as possible.  Now Ohio is in the union’s crosshairs, but they won’t be the last.

The Dems are in a pickle here:  to quote Dennis Green, “They are who we thought they were.”  If the Dems deny their union masters, they will likely be primaried in the next election.  However, if they continue to so brazenly demonstrate their union shilling in this fashion, they will lose credibility with the general population.  They have to sense deep down that their side cannot win at the end of the day as they are stuck against the electorate’s will and economic reality.  But, as the old maxim goes:  you made your bed, now lie in it.

The union protests are understandable — it’s all they know.  But the legislators in Wisconsin and Indiana are on dangerous ground.  Democratic societies can only work when those who lost accept the outcome and move on to the next election.  This brazen obstructionism in WI and IN gets one thinking that these union shilling partisans may not seem to respect the will of the people expressed through elections.
