This comes from the opposition to the stimulus and Obamacare -- straight off the street, Tea Party.
The Dems/Brownshirts are trying to hide under Tea Party rhetoric. (Fools!)
Fire his ass! We don’t need cowards in Wisconsin!
I should note, video by RockfordTeaParty.
As MahaRushi noted, this used to be the job of news media.
This is great. Too funny. Democrats are going down on this one.
I don’t think they actually went back to Wisconsin. They merely said that they were in an attempt to deflect further questioning.
So does that mean they are back in Wisconsin - Check beloit, janesville. also check Dubuque, Iowa - at the gambling casino - breaks the monotony of sitting there doing nothing.
The consequences - people maintain their jobs, 5.8% for pension and 12.6% for healthcare benefits and $1100.00 towards to union dues no lonnger has to be paid. The Democraps fully well know what this is about, the got orders from Odumbo - to walk away to make the hired guns to come in make sure the union does not get busted in Wisconsin Odumbo is unable to win without Wisconsin democratic machine in play to buy the election again. There are the consequences because Ohio will have the same problem and Odumbo knows he will lose. he is unable to enact his socialist utopia because the republicans will obsufacate his agenda.
The consequences are that less taxpayer money will be wasted on these fools. People in the private sector have been experiencing what is being asked of these union thugs for sometime, and it hasn't killed us or caused us to go bankrupt.
Bust the public unions. They're nothing but leeches.
Shouldn’t the MSM be doing this kind of reporting?
Many thanks to the Tea Party people in WI and IL for chasing these vermin down. LOL! Criminal scum.
They need to be confronted just like that to show people who they are and what they are attempting to do to our free system of government, of the people, by the people and for the people. Elections decide who sets the standard and these Democrats are spitting in the eye of the people of Wisconsin through their despicable behavior.
and don’t forget to check the strip joints
I’m seeing some scuttlebutt about a flash mob that was organized at the Rockford hotel. Anyone have info on this?
Cut off state funded cell phones and tow all state owned cars to any politician not at work.
The state should offer any Democrat senator 2 million dollars tax free to show up at the legislature. It will save money.
reminds one of Pelosi saying,”we have to pass it to find out whats in it.”
The Governor needs to start publishing school makeup days so his constituents can see how this is going to effect them personally.
Buh bye spring and summer break.
Not just the private sector. Federal employees also pay into their own pensions and health insurance. We’re retirees and pay 30% of the premium for our federal blue cross. It’s about $430 a month and these people are screaming over being asked to pay much less than that (for better coverage).
Thumbs Up to the patriots in the Rockford TeaParty!
I’ll bet they got the surprise of their life when they saw the TeaPartier. I resent the way he said the name...like it was a dirty word. They’re used to getting away with this stuff but those days are over...
