February 25, 2011- The scene last night, as the Republicans in the Wisconsin Assembly suddenly, and without warning — quite literally in the middle of the night — announced and took a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's union-busting "Budget Repair Bill", followed by chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" from Democrats inside the chamber after it passed was remarkable.
As it was happening, I was reminded of all of those "Tea Partiers" last year who, despite a full year of committee hearings in both chambers of the U.S. Congress, mark-ups, negotiations, changes and concessions in hopes of bringing Republicans on board with the health care insurance reform bill that had otherwise been discussed and debated for at least a full year prior as well during the Presidential campaign, complained that the bill had been "crammed down the throats" of the American people in defiance of popular protests.
Well, in case you're wondering, Tea Partiers, this is what cramming a bill down throats in defiance of popular protests actually looks like.
This is also what it looks like when Big Government actually votes to take away freedoms from American citizens — the other matter you folks pretended to once care about during the Health Care bill debate. So why aren't you joining with the protesters in Wisconsin now?
