Current Repubs want to actually compromise with the Dems. Problem is, the Dems don't want to compromise at all. Instead, the Dems want the Repubs to pass something and the Dems will file lawsuits to "hold up" the laws going into effect in hopes of ousting Walker and other Repubs in a couple of years. Then, if the Dems regain control, they will revert back to pre-Walker days in Wisconsin.So they don't want to do what they really do want to do because it might not get them re-elected? Is that it? How convenient. If Repubs pass something, which they can, Dems will file lawsuits to hold it up even though they are legit laws.If Repubs do what government is supposed to do and compromise with the Dems, maybe there won't be any lawsuits if the Dems have some say in the matter.Seems to me the Dems are the ones holding this up, no?Yeah, ummm no. Sounds like a bunch of crap to be honest. But you and I both know I'm not going to convince you of that.:shrug:Not sure what else I can say. Assume the Repubs pass a law, considering they have already, and there are court cases from allowing those laws to go into effect, which is happening. Why pass any further laws before trying to compromise with the Dems? If its all about reelection, like you contended, wouldn't they be passing law after law after law to demonstrate to their constituents that they are passing laws? Again, not sure what you're playing at here.If you say you are for x, and then have the power to do x, why not just do it?I think a lot of people were asking Obama and the democrat congress that very question.I agree but one let difference is control of all branches of the government, which Obama never had. Still a valid question though.The first 2 years of President Obama's first term the Democrats held a majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. And what did we hear from the Dems for a lack of improvement in the economy? It was Bush's fault and things were much worse than they expected. It's funny how this same standard isn't applied to Walker's first 2 years, in which the WI democratic party has done everything possible from fleeing the state to suing over just about every piece of legislation. And that is the correct answer!
