Moving Forward with the Fab 14
The Legislature went back into session Tuesday without the 14 Democratic State Senators who left the state to prevent the passage of Gov. Walker's "budget repair" bill before the public could be heard from. Gov. Walker and other union opponents criticized the Democrats for being cowardly and not doing their jobs. The people weren't buying it. They knew exactly who was working for them and who really weren't doing their jobs. Everywhere there were signs thanking the Fab 14 -- without whose courageous act the collective bargaining rights of public employees in Wisconsin would already be history.
