Yes! Bill to be separated in order to pass.

According to WISC-TV:

A source confirmed to WISC-TV that Republican senators intend to remove fiscal portions of the budget bill in order to pass it without Democratic senators.

Exactly what I’ve been saying.


  1. I didn’t want it to come to this, but at this point, it is the right thing to do. You can only wait for the absent Senators for so long.

    If they Dems are still out of state and this passes, then will they come back and vote on the financial measures? I would think to be consistent they would have to, right? After all, they don’t oppose any of the benefit cuts, so there’s nothing left to be against, right?

  2. It passes 18 – 1. Senator Schultz votes no.

    Pretty impressive move.

    Prolly should get the National Guard in Madtown ready.

  4. Buh-bye, Scott Walker.

  7. J. Strupp says:

    Good luck with that there buddy. The average Wisconsinite will have moved on by the time you get that organized.

  8. Yep. Sorry for the language folks, but I’m leaving that one up to prove exactly what these folks are capable of doing when they lose.

    Edit comments is being turned off now. You say it; you own it.

  9. Cindy you might want to share your navel lint removal protocol with Mr Capper cause sumthin ain’t right with that man.

  10. Randy in Richmond says:

    My mother always told me that when you have to use profanity to make your point–you don’t have one worth making.

  11. If it’s him. It’s a mobile IP – I can’t call it one way or another and no one’s denying it.

  12. FYI: locally, I saw a man with a sign that said, “Government Oppresses People” standing in front of the Corner Market BP station on Bluemound and Moorland tonight at around 8:30pm.

    Agree or disagree about the bill but one thing is certain. The GOP are a bunch of morons when it comes to “selling” it. They screwed this up from the beginning. Nice job yesterday!

  14. I must say the timing was interesting. I’ll also so the union must have really overplayed their hand with that last talking point.
