If there has been something discussing PORK or a Tav Icrease you can bet Kersey would have been right in the middle of it. I dont understand how this man continues to get elected

All of these people failed us, just because they dont agree with whats going on doesnt mean they should be able to basically cheat. They suck, and they owes the tax payers some money as they still took their salaries to sit on their butts. And they wonder why no one respect politicians.

They are dis-honorable people. They took a cowardly way out. Just remind everyone you know during the next election.

If the "people" vote a certain party in as a majority and then the minority party isn't happy with the agenda WHATEVER it is, the minority can't just stop playing the game and go home. It's called DEMOCRACY and that's how it works folks, tough it out until the next election or step aside and resign if you can't take it!

Good for the Dems. Got the right to work bill killed which would have hurt the state. Got the almight Ditch to back down from some of his education reforms. They left as a bargaining tool and it worked. Don't forget, Replublicans has walked out before also. It has happened to both sides.

Right, and they should all have to pay back the $400,000 it cost the taxpayers when they walked out for two months. The answer VOTE THEM OUT next time.........Im a Democrat, but they won't get my vote

I've already sent Rep. Kersey a note that I will not vote for him or any Democrat in the next state election.
This whole deal was a political sideshow.

I would like to see a invoice for the 400k cost? Last I heard, that was as estimate. They are at work now and making up for it. I don't believe that public money should be used for private schools, but can't win them all.
