Wisconsin GOPer's Bait and Switch

The GOPers in Wisconsin allegedly removed the spending provisions from Walker's union busting "budget" bill so that it could be passed with a bare majority, meaning they didn't need any Democrats present in the chamber to ram the beastly thing through. But a funny thing happened on the way back to the Assembly. The provision allowing the Koch brothers to buy the state's power companies was reinserted in the final version.

Thinking this slimy trick should add some weight to the legal challenges. In a sane world it would be grounds to impeach the whole lot of them, including the Governor, for wilfully defrauding the taxpayers.
