Great job to the GOP senators who took bold action and voted to limit collective bargaining in Wisconsin. They basically took out the financial aspects of Gov. Walker's budget and passed the rest. Brilliant.
The fact is that the Dem Senators could have been there for the debate if they chose to show up to work. But, they are on their extended vacation and meanwhile life has to go on. So, great job GOP senators!
On a side note, I thought it would be interesting to see how this was reported by the different news sites:
CNN: Bypassing Dems, Wisconsin Senate OKs union limits
ABCNEWS: GOP bypasses Dems, cuts collective bargaining
FOXNEWS: Wisconsin votes to strip union rights
NEW YORK TIMES: Wisconsin Senate limits bargaining by public workers
WASHINGTON POST: Wisconsin senate strips workers' bargaining rights
Okay, not bad, but check these out:
MSNBC: GOP rams anti-union bill through Wisconsin senate
HUFFINGTON POST: GOP rams anti-union bill
Hmmm, I wonder what direction they lean?
