    Democratic Senators hold up budget bill by hiding from Capitol

    Published February 17, 2011 - BizTimes Daily

    1 of 7 | Next Next Page

    Republicans in the State Senate prepared to approve Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill today, but at the last minute, the Democrats in the Senate chose not to show up for the session, leaving the chamber without a quorum and putting the proposal in at least temporary limbo.

    Twenty Senators are needed to be present to achieve a quorum. All 19 of the Republicans attended today’s 11 a.m. session. None of the Democrats attended.

    Sources said the Democrats left the building before the Senate’s sergeant at arms was dispatched to look for them. The gallery in the Senate chamber erupted in applause when it was announced the quorom was not achieved.

    NBC News 15 reported that the Democratic Senators have left the state.

    Fox reports that the police are out looking for them under orders to "Drag them to the capitol" to vote on this bill.

    Hey Wei, riddle me this little question.

    Today there will be a hearing on Senate Bill 5 in Ohio – to do the same thing – end collective bargaining – and attaching healthcare, retirement and wages to be based on merit not a deal made.

    I just have to ask – and wonder – why WI is being highlighted in the news, while OH isn’t? Hardly any word of OH's vote today.

    It will be interesting to see how it goes today.

    Running away and shirking responsibility equals "balls" to you?

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Senators are hiding and teachers are calling in sick. So much immaturity. These are supposed to be leaders and educators eh? Sorry, www, you lose. These actions are nothing but drama, and will accomplish nothing. That's not what elected officials are supposed to be doing, and their next round of elections will hopefully put them right where they evidently want to be, away from the capital.

    Just for fun, I'd like to add, my wife, a woefully underpaid special ed teacher has gone to work very sick several times over this last month, because she knew that others had already called in sick (we've had a nasty flu bug floating around here, makes me kind of glad I'm not working and out among the public) and that if she called in, there wouldn't be enough people to take care of the students. And these 1000+ teachers are staging a "sick-out" so they can have the union give them more cookies? Y'all can shove it, if that's the extent of your compassion.
