Intuition correct: anti-union bill rushed through because hold on Republican Senator votes is tenuous

Passed along from the folks at Blue Cheddar.

Intuition correct: anti-union bill rushed through because hold on Republican Senator votes is tenuous.

Republicans can’t risk going back in for a legal vote in committee and Senate because faith in Republican Senators voting for the Governor’s ridiculous legislation waivers.

I think they are also getting wise to how media coverage and spirits rise with a full occupation of the Capitol. They don’t want to risk that again, either.

Speaking of rushing something through, the original bill passed the Assembly in the middle of the night, when many Dems (and even some GOP) weren't there.

Here is a remarkable excerpt about the subject (from an April 24, 2010 Appleton Post-Crescent article when Walker was running for Gov):

(Walker) promised to sign legislation if elected governor that prohibits the Legislature from voting after 10 p.m. or before 9 a.m.

"I have two teenagers and I tell them that nothing good happens after midnight. That's even more true in politics," he said in a statement. "The people of Wisconsin deserve to know what their elected leaders are voting on."

Just thought it was interesting, that's all...
