17. And disproves another saying. 'Both parties are the same, voting doesn't matter.'

3. I asked this in another thread but

could the Democrats have halted Republicans march against the people if they had left the state until the end of the legislative session? Can the state legislature operate in Michigan without a quorum?

6. It would not have worked.

(R)'s set the rules on what constitutes a quorum.

It would not have worked in Michigan like it did in Wisconsin.

4. And another question...

How many of those who voted for this thing actually campaigned promising to do this back in 2010?

My guess: 0

At least that was what I saw here in Indiana before they rammed RTW through here earlier this year.

They're a bunch of antidemocratic (small-d) cowards...

8. SNYDER said himself as late as earlier this year that he wouldn't sign this because it's

"too controversial". He is a goddamn liar and a sleaze. But then again, so is the entire Michigan GOP. I am beyond disgusted this morning.

10. Did he say he wouldn't sign it?

Did he say he wouldn't sign it, or veto it, or did he just say he wouldn't push it (like Wisconsin Gov is saying right now).

14. He said he "wouldn't support it" which infers he wouldn't sign it, but he's a skeevy, sleazy mofo

He definitely implied that he would not sign such legislation into law so he's a fucking LIAR.

5. This also proves that the new legislature can rescind this rtw law in the next session.

And then build bargaining rights into the Michigan Constitution.

9. But Snyder will veto & not enough Democrats to override. We'll have to wait until Snyder is out.

7. The silver lining

Maybe the people who stay home in non-Presidential election years might finally see the difference between Republicans and Democrats and get to the polls from now on, because they realize that elections have consequences FOR THEM.

13. Michigan woman called in to...

...the Norman Goldman Show and she said in 2010 many Union members voted for the GOP because they were told that Obama was going to take away their guns and homosexuals will marry. So they voted Republican instead.

11. Also

he waited until after the election because "don't worry, I'm not planning anything drastic" was part of his campaign against proposal 2 (which would have enshrined bargaining rights in the constitution)

26. Thanks For Providing The Proof

But this is something we pretty much already knew. Same thing on the wild abortion bill they just passed. 2014 could be a very tough year on Republicans in Michigan. Same can be said for Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin.
