Democrats in Wisconsin vow to stay away…. Where’s the problem?

As I said before, I’m not surprised that Democrats have fled from Wisconsin’s capitol rather than do their job, do what they were elected to do.  But the more I think about it, the more I hope they’ll stay away…maybe flee to Canada.  The mess they made of the State of Wisconsin might be straightened out if they hit the road.

From The Daily Beast:

Democrats in Wisconsin have vowed to stay away from the capital for as long as necessary in order to block Governor Scott Walker’s attempt to gut public employee’s collective-bargaining rights. So the question arises: Is compromise possible? A group of moderate Republicans are issuing a proposal to suspend those collective-bargaining rights but then reinstate them in 2013. Still, Democrats want an elimination of collective-bargaining rights ruled out altogether. “Collective bargaining isn’t a fiscal issue,” said one Democratic senator. “If it’s OK to collectively bargain in 2013 why isn’t it OK today?” Three Republicans will need to defect from Walker’s proposal in order to kill it.
