After a marathon session (the longest ever, iirc), the State of Wisconsin Assembly has passed Scott Walker’s budget repair bill. The Senate is unable to debate the bill since a quorum cannot be met on matters financial with our state senators having fled the state. In an interesting twist, an Illinois representative has said that the senators should pay Illinois tax on their salary, akin to a football player getting paid for playing the Bears in Chicago. He has a pretty good point, and has pointed to some of our senators on TV saying that they are “working” while in Illinois.
Meanwhile the state senate has debated voter ID, but there is a cost associated with that so they can’t pass that either. I am sure they will pass everything they can while the Democrat senators are away. I sincerely hope that someone can trace the resources that the Wisconsin Senators are being provided in Illinois to find out if they are accepting illegal monies.
Walker isn’t moving. I think he will shut down the state. He is holding all the cards. I think he will win.
