Super majority is about control.Not representative of the true public opinion. The walkout stalls bad legislation. It's the only effective control for political overreach.

Our pubic servants are PAID TO DO THEIR JOBS! Walking out on a bill they disagree on is acting like a petulant child, Get in there and do the work. Otherwise, don't try to get elected for a job you do not intend to do.

I think there is already a law preventing walkouts, but, sure, anything extra that would keep them on the job.

I'm not allowed to walk out on my job WITH PAY, if I don't like what's going on

Democrats & Republicans have been guilty of 'calling in sick'. In a democratic-republic, it is the act of a coward, or a scoundrel, to avoid doing their sworn-duty, when they are able. Military Veterans, and others, have endured great pain, and even death, for showing up, to do their job!

The supermajority doesn’t need the Republican votes. They only need two of them in order to completely screw this state into the ground.

No, I don't support this!

With a supermajority hellbent on destroying personal liberties in this state, the only way to stop bad bills is to deny quorum.

This is the only way to not be a partisan government. The issues that were not attended had zero Republican input. We need a democracy that can compromise. One party rule leads to failure.

Democrats have rigged the system in Oregon to the extent that only by walking out are half of Oregon's population being represented. Democrats ignore the will of the voters because they think you are stupid.

Rigged? Like McConnell changing the rules to suit HIS party? Like saying the next SCOTUS justice should be elected by the "next" POTUS - when he didn't want Obama's choice - but completely changing the rules when it was Trump in office. You guys talk out of both sides of your mouth!! Disgusting!

It's part of the checks and balance system. If the bill is so bad that there is no common ground it should be stopped or sent to the people for a vote. If the voters approve, then it should be law. Democrats have used this as well.

Becoming a union member saved my life and changed the direction of my life, being a single mom of two with no child support. I vigorously approve of unions.

My brief stint as a first line manager convinced me that workers need unions. I saw how upper management, in that setting, really wanted to treat workers.

I worked for a union and later belonged to a union. The downfall of America's middle class correlates directly with the downfall of unions, beginning at least 30 years ago.

Um, what was the question? Anyway, wouldn't you have had to have a job to be in a union? And wouldn't you have to be able to read to have a job?
