    Indiana GOP drops anti-union bill, but Democrats stay out of state

    Source: CBS News

    Republican lawmakers in Indiana have given up on a controversial anti-union bill that drove Democratic legislators out of the state, but Democrats want to see other controversial bills dropped before they return, the Indianapolis Star reports.

    Like Wisconsin Democrats before them, Indiana Democrats yesterday fled their state to stall a vote on a state bill that would weaken unions. But while the legislative battle rages on in Wisconsin, the Indiana labor measure known as the "right to work" bill is now effectively dead. Republicans in the state say they will move the issue to a legislative committee for review later in the year, according to the Star.

    The bill in question would have prohibited union membership or fees from being a condition of employment.

    Even though the bill is dead, Democrats say they'll stay out of state -- specifically, in a hotel in Urbana, Illinois -- until Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma and Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels drop 10 other bills they oppose, all relating to either labor or education. The Democrats are primarily opposed to a measure for private school vouchers, the Star reports.

    This leaves me totally speechless. It shouldn't, I don't suppose, but it does.

    When is the public going to get sick of the temper tantrums and infantile actions of the Democrats.

    For all the talk of obstructionism they take it several steps further and leave the state until they "get what they want".

    6. Extra! Extra! Democrats Begin Growing Spines!

    How's that taste of your own medicine going down? In the most delightful way from where I'm standing...

    Hold the sugar.
    Running away from an issue is now the DUmmie definition of political backbone.

    He clarified his remarks, He was specifically talking about the protesters not the Democrat Senators.

    From http://hopenchangecartoons.blogspot.com/:



    There's an old saying that "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Unfortunately, when the going gets tough, the spineless and cowardly also get going...packed into buses and headed to other states to keep Democracy from working.

    At least, that's the case in Wisconsin and Indiana, with Democrats in other states feverishly examining Greyhound bus schedules looking for sanctuary states.

    Frankly, we think this new Democrat "Flee Party" movement deserves a newer and more accurate mascot than the old Ass they've used previously, and Hope n' Change is happy to suggest the design seen in today's cartoon.

    We think the Democrat Donkey has outlived any semblance of accuracy. After all, a donkey is actually capable of performing work, stands on its own feet, and is at least marginally lovable... none of which is true of a liberal Democrat.

    But a flea? It's a blood-sucking parasite that lives off of others, it breeds promiscuously, and it's nearly impossible to get rid of. In other words, it's a perfect match!

    So let us celebrate this new era in which Conservatives are finally making clear that while this has been "the land of the flea"...it's once again becoming "the home of the brave."
    --Odysseus
    Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    A local radio host in Madison who also has a show broadcasting in Milwaukee refers to the fleeing dems as Fleebaggers. I think Fleabagger fits better though. I suppose either works and both describe the dems well. The former reminds one of cowards and latter, parasites.
