    Liberals never learn that when they play their dirty tricks and have temper tantrums that they are setting a precedent and it will come back to bite them in the butt.

    Then like the hypocrites they are they protest and have more temper tantrums.

    La Follette delays collective bargaining bill as Democratic senators prepare to return
    Friday, March 11, 2011 8:29 pm

    State senators left the state for three weeks. Assembly members forced a marathon, 61-hour debate in their chamber. Now, Secretary of State Doug La Follette will join the list of Democrats delaying Gov. Scott Walker's controversial bill to limit collective bargaining for public employees.

    Walker signed the bill early Friday, but it doesn't take effect until the secretary of state publishes the proposal, and La Follette said he would not publish the law until March 25 to allow time for legal challenges to move through the courts. Laws don't take effect until one day after they are published with the Legislative Reference Bureau.

    -snip-

    La Follette, a Democrat, said in an interview that it's normal procedure to publish laws 10 business days after the governor signs them, although he said it is sometimes necessary speed up the process.

    "The governor wants to publish this on Monday, but that seems a mad rush to conclusion when there are so many questions," La Follette said. "This is one of the biggest changes in Wisconsin I can remember, and I've been around for 30 years."

    -snip-
    Liberals aren't going to win with this one but they are quite ga ga about the LOL Democrat's delaying tactic.

    2. Love it!

    especially since his last name is La Follette. Any relation?

    So far they are clueless. Which is to say their normal state.

    It will be the normal "Rule of Law" crap, even though this is within the law and then on an on about a big liberal conspiracy. Every time I read that crap I can't help but think, if only Democrats were as organized as they claim we are.

    They don't call this the official seal of the Democratic Party for nothing:

    And here is the real reason for the delaying tactic.

    It's like what Walker has said. The unions "said they agreed" to the increasing what they pay toward their health care and increasing the amount they pay toward their retirement BUT the unions were all in a hurry to settle contracts after saying that and NOT DOING WHAT THEY AGREED THAT THEY WOULD DO.

    Sure, the law hadn't passed yet so they were able to do it, however it shows how disingenuous they are and how you can't trust them. That's why Walker couldn't settle with them without dealing with the collective bargaining issue.

    7. "Delaying" is not a pejorative word in this context -- we want to delay the bill. Updated at 2:38 AM

    And since Walker wanted it published next week and presumably the SoS could have obliged him, La Follette IS delaying it.

    Good for him.

    This not only allows more time for the legal challenges, it gives precious time to some unions who can still do some collective bargaining.


    For instance, the Madison school board will be meeting tomorrow to approve a deal with its unions before Walker's bill goes into effect.

    They'll now have a bit more time to work that out.

    DIMRAT response to this is like the hapless basketball team who finally scores and storms the floor in the final seconds to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,, lose 70-2.
