Great move!!

After all, these Dems are AOL from work so why should they get paid?

Paychecks to be withheld from absent Wisconsin senators

MADISON (AP) Wisconsin's 14 Democratic senators are being threatened with recalls and having their paychecks withheld because they've been hiding out of state since Thursday. But they say those threats won't deter them in their opposition to the anti-union bill that prompted their flight.

The senators have been gone for five days. As long as they're away there aren't enough senators left to take action on a bill by Republican Gov. Scott Walker that would strip unionized public employees of most of their bargaining rights.

The pressure is ramping up for the Democrats to return. A Utah-based group has filed paperwork to recall some of them, and the Senate passed a measure withholding paychecks from absent lawmakers.

But the Democrats say they're not coming back while the bargaining rights are in jeopardy.

Thank you for your continuing support! If it wasn't for the greedy unions we would have plenty of jobs. For example I could have twice as many employees if I didn't have to pay minimum wage, and I could stay open 7 days a week if I didn't have to pay overtime! And please continue supporting my tax breaks. I need the money more than you. I like how it has been and will say anything to keep this status quo! Tea bag me!

There's a serious decision that has to be made at my office. I don't think I want to be part of it. I'm afraid to make a dicision because I might upset people. I think I'll follow the Dems, I'll run and hide.

Great comparison and that's EXACTLY what it is all about!!

The bigger issue than their refusal to handle the union issue is that because of their stunt, they've also hampered the rest of the Senates business!

This is also comparible to a very small child throwing a tantrum, holding their breath and stomping their feet because they didn't get their way!!!

Make sure you get your excuse note from the Doctor so you will still be paid for the time you spend away from your job like the union freeloaders in WI

Lets see --

Democrats lost in Wisconsin and Indiana --

The '''PROPLE''' of those states voted them out! Their policies were thrown out with them , now they flee to other states --

Who would have guessed ?

Does the term ''small children'' come to mind?

After the ''voters'' see this childish behavior what do you think is going to happen in 2012?

The day of the 'Hogs at the taxpayers Trough' are over!
