IN AMERICA THE LAND OF THE FREE?????
Wisconsin Republicans dispatched police to the homes of absent Democratic senators on Thursday to try to round them up for a vote on a plan to strip public sector unions of most collective bargaining rights.
While the search failed to find the Democrats, it raised the stakes as Gov. Scott Walker's self-imposed deadline of Friday for approving the proposal neared.
Wisconsin has become ground zero in a national struggle over labor unions power, and union members from all over the country have converged on the state to protest the proposal.
All 14 Democrats in the Senate fled to Illinois last week to deny Republicans a quorum and a vote on the bill.
Republicans hold a 19 to 14 majority but need a quorum of 20 to vote on spending bills. The Democrats fled because they feared they could be compelled to attend if they remained.
