Everybody is well aware that for years that was the Democrat strategy in regards to our actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as how to handle the prisoners at Club Gitmo. They then repeated the play shortly after Nancy Pelosi and the Dems took control of Congress by leaving Washington, turning out the lights, turning off the mics and placing guards at the doors of the congressional chambers while the Republicans were trying to bring forth an energy bill. They have continued this now with the tantrum in Wisconsin, fleeing the state in defiance of the voters of their state and now it is Indiana's turn.
House Democratic lawmakers in Indiana have begun a de facto walkout in an effort to block a Republican-backed bill that would restrict private-sector union rights.
Republicans arrived at the statehouse Tuesday morning to find no Democrats present, as protesters applauding the walkout could be heard inside the chamber.
The strategy is possible because Republicans make up 60 of 100 House seats. Without any Democrats present, Republicans lack a two-thirds majority needed for a quorum to act on the bill.
