Wisconsin GOP Union-Busting Coalition Falling Apart?

Another term for ‘moderate Republican’ is ‘RINO’

The right wing coalition trying to destroy collective bargaining in Wisconsin is starting to fall apart.

With Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker maintaining a hard line on his budget bill and Democratic senators refusing to return to Madison to vote, attention is turning to a group of moderate Republican senators to negotiate a compromise to the stalemate that has drawn thousands of protesters to the state capital for a sixth straight day.

The proposal, written by Sen. Dale Schultz and first floated in the Republican caucus early last week, calls for most collective bargaining rights of public-employee unions to be eliminated—per Mr. Walker’s bill—but then reinstated in 2013, said Mr. Schultz’s chief of staff Todd Allbaugh.

And this, of course, is enraging the right wing blogosphere; Jim “Dim” Hoft says to his readers:

DERPGood grief…

Don’t look now but Wisconsin Republican Senators are getting wobbly.

Republican Senator Dale Schultz is ready to bail on Governor Scott Walker.

You can send Dale Schultz a respectful email telling him to support Governor Walker here.

I love it! A “respectful email,” indeed. Here’s the title of Hoft’s idiotic post: “Republican Turncoats May Sabotage Governor Walker’s Budget Cut Plans!”

That’s the Tea Party definition of “respectful.”
