      then, sure, they can repeal any bill.

      Walker is going to get a lot of shit passed, though, in the time before we remove him and his majority from the leg.  It will be hard to get it all undone.

      It's like cutting taxes. Once its on the books its almost impossible to undo the damage and raise taxes again.

    •  If the people who stayed home and didn't vote (7+ / 0-)

      in 2010 decide to make it to the polls in '12, Republicans will be crushed. The attacks on public sector workers is going to backfire as unions at their core now really do get to the daily life of the average citizens in dealing with teachers, fire, police and other government employees.

      Baggers and Birchers have grasped onto the 3rd rail, and they can't let go.  

      Any of these perverse laws can be reversed: the more extreme the Repugs get as Baggers control them, the bigger their losses in '12.

      Republicans totally abandoned conservatism in the 1980s ..

      needed for cloture.

      Nationally the Repubs can destroy every time they're in power, and the Dems can't rebuild on the occasional times they're in power.
