Below, Sly asked listeners to call their lawmakers and ask them why collective bargaining wasn't even on their legislative agendas.
The main reason; Scott Walker would veto it. And that's all it took for Sly to rightfully go off the deep end.
Never taking a few marketing tips from the Republican masters of spin, Democratic lawmakers have ignored every opportunity to push their own agenda, even if it means getting vetoed for years on end.
Democratic voters have to direct their energy for change at their own elected lawmakers, those weak kneed losers who don’t seem to have a clue about how to lead a movement.
In Sly’s own words (audio below):
Last week, we learned that not a single Democratic State Senator had put the restoration of collective bargaining in the upcoming legislative session's agenda. The Fabulous 14 are no more.
Keep calling labor traitors. For those who say I won't call out my side of the aisle when things go wrong, this should be proof of the contrary. Jon Erpenbach is a labor traitor whom was used by Tom Barrett as a shield, the most prominent Democratic that fled to Illinois. Now, Erpenbach's office staff is being genuinely untruthful, aggressively fending off those of you who called him along with Mark Miller and Fred Risser.
This is a national problem too, having seen the same lack of effort directed at the Affordable Care Act.
