Update March 18, 2011:  Judge Temporaily blocks implementation of public union law

Today Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker owned the public sector workers in his state. By playing the “nuclear option”  regarding his “budget repair bill” Walker was able to strip public sector employees of their collective bargaining rights.  Walker agreed to strip his bill of any spending provisions therefore leaving only the collective bargaining  provision and YES it passed!  The Wisconsin Democrat senators who had refused to return to Madison to vote on the bill were OWNED!  (I commend their efforts, they are heroes! ) Anyone who believes this is a good thing needs to get off their butt and cease spending so much time watching Jersey Shore or Idol.

At a press conference after the vote Walker admitted that the bill just passed was indeed fiscal  in nature. In other words the bill was passed without a quorum since  all  bills of a fiscal   nature require a 3/5 quorum in the Senate. There are currently 19 Republican senators, and 14 Democrat senators. Walker went on to say:

“The Senate Democrats have had three weeks to debate this bill and were offered repeated opportunities to come home, which they refused.  In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government.  The action today will help ensure Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to create 250,000 new jobs.”

Things that make you go hmmm… 250,000 jobs? Really?  I really want to know how that works, don’t you?
