Wisconsin lawmakers agree on one thing
And this final note. Lawmakers in Wisconsin continued their stalemate over budget cuts today. They’re now in week two of protests over a plan to strip public employees of their collective bargaining rights in an effort to deal with a $137 million shortfall. But Republicans vowed to proceed with at least a few legislative items despite the impasse.
If there’s one thing they can all agree on, apparently, it’s that the Green Bay Packers are awesome, and therefore deserving of an official commendation for winning the Super Bowl. Just don’t ask for their thoughts on the value of collective bargaining in football.
