    Wisconsin Assembly Reaches Deal ...
    Source: HuffPo

    MADISON, Wis. ó Wisconsin Democrats in the state Assembly agreed to a deal in the pre-dawn hours Thursday to limit debate and reach a vote, perhaps by midday, on a bill taking away public workers' collective bargaining rights.

    The deal announced shortly after 6 a.m. was designed to force a vote on Republican Gov. Scott Walker's bill following more than 42 hours of debate that began Tuesday morning.

    "We will strongly make our points, but understand you are limiting the voice of the public as you do this," said Democratic state Rep. Mark Pocan of Madison. "You can't dictate democracy. You are limiting the people's voice with this agreement this morning."

    1. DID THEY JUST F***ing fold?!? n/t
    Yes. It turns out that you can't really run a re-election campaign on "I was proud to be brave enough to run away."

    3. What IS this?....They had the momentum...What's going on?
    What's going on is that once again, you have deluded yourself into thinking that you have some sort of majority, even in places like Moonbat Central, better known as Madison, WI. Reality wins every time over your delusions, moonbat.

    Here's what it means, moonbats: you're losing. People aren't buying your bullshit any more. This is the state house that is giving in. The Senate will give in soon enough. Someone in the Senate will figure out that he/she is going to get booted out of office for this stunt, and they will come back and try to save skin by showing up and taking their lumps on this vote.

    It's the beginning of the end for you, moonbats of Wisconsin. Enjoy the show.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    it is a great move, but the GOP should have broken the bill into two, pass the collective bargaining part (since they can do that without a quorum) and move on.

    Brave Democrats ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger rears itís ugly head
    They bravely turned their tail and fled.
    Yes Brave Democrat turned about
    They gallantly chickened out.

    17. You are correct, my point is walker will do the same thing. Also, I think we have already won. Not

    only did the republicans show how much they hate labor, they overplayed their hand, and they will pay for it in 2012
    We shall see. Right now the polling is showing that voters are in disagreement with the way Democrats are running away. To me that does not say that they are siding with labor.

    DUers aren't going to give up though.

    4. This is the Assembly, not the Senate.

    As far as I know, the WI 14 are still out of the state.

    19. Walker Tapes .... Walkergate

    Very unbelievable how Walko could have been duped for a 20 minute phone conversation.

    Complete lack of conscience at not even feeling embarrassed by it.

    Lack of remorse indicates sntisocial personality .... look it up.

    Dems are slowly giving in, but look most reasonable at this point.
    LOL. He should be "remorseful" why? He didn't say anything wrong or to be remorseful about. Everything you are crowing about you have had to add to in order for it to be something negative.
