Bob the Postman BS: Unions attacked 17 Senators missing (55* d) RE: BS: Unions attacked 17 Senators missing 17 Feb 11

"Repubs might be the party of "No," but they, at least, had the moral fiber to let the democratic process run it course, although they knew they would lose. Wisconsin Dems are moral cowards."

I'm with Foolestroupe (06:18 PM) on this--denying quorum IS part of the democratic process. The moral cowardice is shown by those in power who take advantage of a fiscal crisis to introduce ideology-driven sweeping roll-backs in standards which have been achieved incrementally over many generations.

The raison d'etre of unions is negotiation--cutting deals is what they do best. But governors (small g or big G) prefer bullying to negotiation if they can get away with it. Sadly, the American people have been letting them get away with it ever since Reagan crotch-kicked the air-traffic controllers back in the early 80s.
