Default Wisconsin redux: Indiana Democrats flee state in protest

Oh no they di'n'!

Quote:
In a replay of the recent political upheaval in Wisconsin, Indiana state government remains at a five-week standstill with the departure of 39 House Democrats who remain holed up in Illinois. In this instance, they are protesting of a Republican agenda they characterize as unfair to the state’s middle class and a threat to future business development.
Quote:
While walkouts are not uncommon among Indiana state legislators, what makes the current situation unique – and different from the one in Wisconsin – is that Democrats are protesting the entire Republican agenda, not any single bill. As a result, lawmakers don't appear to know where to start to find compromise. In addition, hotter-than-usual rhetoric fueled by a mounting sense of political uncertainty in the Hoosier State is making the situation more volatile.
Quote:
The standoff, which has no sign of abating on either side, may lead to a government shutdown if the Democrats do not return by April 29, the last day in session and the final opportunity legislators have to approve a state budget, due June 30.

“It looks like it’s going to be a waiting game. And so they will play it out until the bitter end unless there is a backroom deal,” says Brian Vargus, a political scientist at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis.
I think this will backfire if services are cut off and they can be blamed for it.
Oh by the way:

Indiana law is written so a quorum is needed for every vote, no matter if it involves spending money or not. That means Indiana Republicans remain powerless until the Democrats return.
popcorn time!

You have that correct. They're probably filming their campaign ads as we speak.

wow.. more ****tards who don't want to do their jobs. Surprising. Hopefully they garnish their wages while they're out refusing to do their jobs like a bunch of ****ing children.

Do they think if they run off saying 'la la la la' and sticking their fingers in their ears will make the problems go away?

Good Gawd, did the Democrats lose what was left of their collective spine last election? Talk about taking the ball and going home. -sigh-
