The GOPs Contempt Towards Labor

Dave Weigel captures footage of Democrats screaming after the assembly quickly approved Wisconsin's controversial budget proposal:


Today 7:59 AM Wis. Minority Leader Not Happy With How Anti-Union Bill Was Passed 
Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca is not happy with the way Assembly Republicans quickly approved Gov. Scott Walker's union-busting budget bill.
“The contempt displayed this evening toward democracy and the people of Wisconsin by the Republicans in the Assembly was appalling," Barca said in a statement. “And Republicans in the Assembly knew their cause was so flawed that they rushed a vote in seconds, cheating Democratic representatives of the opportunity to vote against this horrible legislation. Then they fled the chamber surrounded by armed law enforcement agents refusing to explain their actions to the media or face the citizens who were gathered outside."
The bill still has to go through the state Senate. Senate Democrats have been hiding in Illinois for the past week, making it impossible for the upper chamber to pass the bill. Assembly Democrats have said they have no idea when Senate Democrats plan to return.
