Fleabagger Democrats Strike Again — This Time In Indiana!
Rather than doing the job they were elected to do, Indiana’s Democrats fled the state rather than voting. They know they don’t have enough votes to prevent Indiana from becoming a right to work state. So rather than voting according to their beliefs, they high tailed it out of the state like spoiled children.
A final vote on the measure, which would ban union contracts from requiring nonunion members to pay fees for representation, had been expected on Tuesday in the House, which Republicans dominate 60 to 40. But with scores of union members and supporters filling the Statehouse halls in Indianapolis in protest, most Democrats refused to turn up for floor sessions — not once but twice on Tuesday afternoon.
The absences, only the latest in a series of absences and fierce partisan debate over the issue during the state’s legislative session, meant Republicans did not have enough members on the floor to do business; 67 representatives are required.
Republicans say the right to work legislation would allow workers who do not wish to support unions not to be forced to and would entice new businesses to move to Indiana, which would be the first state in more than a decade to approve such a provision. Democrats say the measure, more common in states outside the traditional Midwestern manufacturing belt, would weaken unions and lead to lower pay and benefits for workers.
Get ready for the union goons and the dirty smelly hippies to take over the Statehouse and leave a huge mess.
