Wisconsin GOP Union-Busting Coalition Falling Apart?
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:
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.”
