It's about time the Democrat party showed America that they don't stand behind the taxpayer, not now or ever, but behind all the money sucking leeches the largest of which is the public service unions. No less than the President of the US taking sides with out of control public employee unions who care less about the teachers, the students or any other segment of the taxpaying population.
Talk about literal dereliction of duty! actually walking out rather than standing tall. Why would anyone want to be a Democrat after this fiasco?
At least the Republican minority in the US House and Senate stayed, knowing they couldn't stop the runaway Democrats. When the tables were turned, the Dems got scared and ran away. True cowards, those 14 Democrat Wisconsin Senators!
