Just LET those idiot Indiana Dem legislators slide over here…Posted by Jack Howser on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011 @ 5:12 pm.
INDIANA—What happens when you have a representative Republic whose representatives flee their responsibilities?
You have a bunch of wimp-ass Indiana Democrats who are traipsing across state lines to Kentucky and Illinois so there’s no quorum in their state houses. And that’s just wrong.
Republican-led states have been trying to wrangle with their budgets by fighting spending-crazy ‘progressive’ leaders who, it appears, are trying to get their constituents hooked on whatever ‘entitlement’ programs they can make available…whether it’s public aid or public service unions.
So when legislators with sense are trying to do the right thing and draw back spending where it can be done (asking those employed by the state to stop their ongoing [unearned] raises and to do more personal contributions toward their retirement instead of expecting the state to make the contributions), the non-sensible legislators whine, stomp, pitch a fit and ultimately walk out, ignoring their responsibilities to the majority in favor of the slim minority.
Here’s an excerpt of what’s going on, from Channel 6, Indianapolis with link http://www.theindychannel.com/politics/26952040/detail.html :
Gov. Mitch Daniels said Tuesday he will not send the state police to retrieve Indiana House Democrats who may have fled the state in protest of a so-called right-to-work bill and other GOP-backed bills in the Legislature.
Sources gave conflicting information about the whereabouts of Indiana Democrats, who didn’t show up to begin the day in the House on Tuesday morning, effectively stopping business in that legislative chamber.
Reports are that the yellow-bellied losers are slinking across state lines to Illinois and Kentucky, where a Dem governor won’t order them to be arrested by state police and hauled back to their home states.
Personally, we think that would be a hoot to get to watch happen; we’d be right there with video rolling.
So if we get the opportunity, if public sentiment changes and for some odd reason Quinn would opt to force these dumbasses to get out of our state, go back to their home state and tend to business, we’ll just see what kind of footage we can obtain.
In the meantime, ponder this: If Republican leaders had walked out of state houses in order to show ‘favor’ to their ‘programs,’ how would they be treated? Do you believe there would be quite the disparate reaction?
Why is it good when one side does it, and anathema if the other side does?
We heard today a perfect perspective on all this mess: Public service unions are the only unions that FIGHT AGAINST We the People. They go into contract negotiations to the detriment of the taxpayers, because they are effectively strong-arming the taxpayers to GIVE THEM MORE MORE MORE. While they are doing less less less: teachers, cops, prison guards, etc. Unions for public servants are deplorable. Part of the job of ‘public service’ is the drawback that every couple of years, the employment rolls are going to overturn. This is good. It keeps people from being entrenched. That goes for the good employees as well as the bad….but it keeps the bad from proliferating, and we have entirely too many bad public employees who are unfireable and thus a drain on us all.
The time has come to reign in the egregious spending. All of us who work in the private sector have had to pull in and tighten up. We who own businesses aren’t getting raises; we’re getting taxed. Public sector employees are no better than anyone else. Payroll is a state’s most controllable expense. So it’s time to control it.
