I first felt as you did.

I believe the Democrats are willing to return if the removal of collective bargaining rights was removed from the budget repair bill.

The unions have agreed to all of the financial concessions. They just want the ability to bargain as a unit in the future when the economy is better. Is that so wrong?

I support my state senator (who happens to be one of those Democrats waiting over the state border) in this. The ENTIRETY of the senators' job is to protect and support those in their district. That's what they're doing.

Re: I first felt as you did.

Exactly. The provisions for a quorum are precisely to help create a state of political democracy rather than mob rule. It is one bulwark against the majority taking away rights from the minority - such as is clearly being attempted here.
