Wisconsin’s Democratic senators return
Fourteen wayward Democratic state senators who fled Wisconsin last month to try to derail legislation stripping most public employees of nearly all their collective-bargaining rights returned to the state Saturday and joined tens of thousands of raucous protesters outside the state Capitol.
The returning Democrats began marching around the Capitol at about 2:30 p.m. CST (12:30 p.m. PST), greeted by deafening cheers and chants of “thank you, thank you!”
After marching around the Capitol, the Democratic senators addressed the crowd from a stage, their voices booming through speakers set up around the building.
“It is so good to be here, Wisconsin!” said Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller, the first senator to address the crowd.
“Welcome home! Welcome home!” the crowd chanted in response.
Let me get this straight, the Democrats walk away from their responsibilities, abandon these people and then the people chant “thank you” upon their return?
Talk about a bunch of pill popping fools.
