    The last thing they needed in 2011 was another extremist bill when State Senators and Walker himself were under recall.  They also didn't hold the majority in the State Senate during the last part of that session either.

    They bought their majorities in both houses in the last election so the extremism continues.  They need to get all their onerous crap done this year so voters forget by 2014 and they can buy their seats back again.

      I thought we'd be a right-to-work-for-less state with the death penalty by now. I think the Madison uprising and the backlash that Kasich faced in Ohio must have scared Walker.

      We have a good chance to beat Walker. Not so sure about the legislature given the ridiculous gerrymandering, however.

      a year and a half until after the 2014 election.
         But then again, they control both houses and the state house now and may not again. So they do it now hoping people's memories are short.
        One thing you gotta say about the Repubs is that whenm they get into power, they're not shy in using it.

        our state economy is in the tank because of Walker and GOP austerity.  The 2014 election is far from a certain win - particularly if the Dems get their act together and a good opponent for Walker steps forward.

        For them it's now or never.
