The delegates they most recently voted for weren't even seated yet. Does their previous vote override their most recent?


Late edit: I see the state legislature didn't change much so there's that. Still strikes me as a blatant power grab. Did Walker complain he had too much work while he served?   


I missed your edit in my first response!   You must have edited right as I hit quote to reply.

I think the problem is our news outlets don't have enough to do.  They're literally trying to make news out of something that happens pretty regularly.

And here's my point Mojo, since you might get it while the rest of these partisan hacks will still be bitching and moaning and ready for revolt in 2020 when they again find out America just really isn't that into them.

You see this as a "blatant power grab."  It's very telling how many of our news outlets do too.  (and the reason why they continue to lose the "trust" of the American people.)

If you were listening you heard a lot of Republicans bitch about Democrats' "blatant power grabs" too.  Especially round about the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017.  But by and large for the entire Obama presidency ... as the Democrats' power was shrinking throughout the country due to their own shortsighted and out of touch actions. 

But let's not pretend the Democrats have any blame here.  This is all dirty tricks by those dastardly Republicans! 

It's a great shortcut through "Having to do any work" if you can get it.

Both sides do it, and they do it because they can get away with it. And they can get away with it because we have created a political environment in which they can do so.

The party voted out is throwing a wobbler? That's nothing new. Calm down, ladies.

Your examples cover executive actions that can be undone by the next incoming executive.  In Wisconsin, they are rewriting the rules so that the next incoming executive CAN'T undo them.


Of course they can undo them.  They just have to rewrite the laws and pass them, with the peoples' approval.

Not "the peoples' approval", the approval of a gerrymandered state house majority, elected by a distinct minority of voters.

The question stands. Is what they did illegal? If not, and people want it to be, pass a law.

I said it was undemocratic, not illegal.  It also contradicts republican talking points about "elections matter".
