(CNN) – A Wisconsin judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday, halting the Wisconsin budget repair bill from becoming law, the Dane County District Attorney's office said. The proposal in part limits collective bargaining rights of union members and has been the subject of fierce protests in the state.
First bit of good news in a while
WONDERFUL!!!! Now all Wisconsinites need to do is recall every senator and legislator that vited for this measure. You may have started the battle Dictator Walker, but WE THE PEOPLE will win the war.
Great news!!! Hope is alive.....
This is some good news. This bill is terrible, as well as the bills in other states.
Fabulous. Now WI can increase its debt like CA and NY. Life's hard. It's harder when you're stupid.
Great, all we need is an activist judge to find away to squash the will of the people.
Yay for justice!
Yep. Hope is alive. Layoff more fellow teachers in the name of Viagra in your heathcare package and retire at 50. What a life.
you must all be union people.. WE THE PEOPLE are tired of paying for you!
What's the good news your still broke with not way out. Cheers
I am very glad to hear this.
This is also what the GOP in Iowa are trying to do. I hope they learn from WI!
It's absurd to think that you can prevent people from forming uniions. Might as well try to amend the constitution to disallow peacable assembly. If you're anti-union, then don't hire them, but you cannot prevent unions. Republican morons.
One judge outdoes how the elected governor, elected legislature, and thereby the people of Wisconsin want to run their state. Guess this means the state workers now get laid off as opposed to losing some powe. Great.
This is why we have three branches of power: thank you Mr. Judge.
Thank god. At least somebody in charge over there has got a brain.
Great, for once the govenment got it right by doing what needed to be done and what the people of the state wanted to be done. Now the cry babies who finally have to start paying like evryone else are blocking this much needed reform.
well if they can do it against Healthcare, why not against this lousey bill. Chalk up one for the good guys.
Then I guess the Gov willhave to raise taxes for all the citizens to pay for the benefits of the public servants
peeps need to research and stop listening to reporters maybe then u will learn the truths stupid people make stupid decisions
A victory for union thugs! Great! Now they can use my tax money to promote public unions that I do not support! Yay!
Typical responses from liberal loonies. Of course this liberal judge blocked this bill. She's a far left activist with judicial powers. I don't really understand how she has this authority though.
Logic and Law have finally did what they are intended to do.
They lost by 5 minutes. They just couldn't wait. This is a great day for America. They weren't trying to balance the budget, they were trying to destroy the Democratic Party. And they failed.
