Both parties needs to wake up! Wisconsin is an exsample when one of the Parties walk away from an issue.They need to solve issue & not create another! This reflects both Parties & Leadership! That's just one reason why, the Citizens Party! is the best Party to solve issue. We will never walk away from issues.
Respectfully, the democrats walked away because the republican majority were not listening to the will of the people and were voting on their own agenda. Walking away (for this particular incident) was the only thing they could do to prolong the inevitable. Their goal was that the republican legislature would finally recognize the 100,000 or so protestors. But we are all well aware that that did not happen. At least it garnered more media attention and now the fruits of their labels are the possible removal of Gov. Walker.
