Now Indiana democrats in the state assembly will not show up to vote on a bill limiting public sector unions, similar to what happened in Wisconsin. They're doing this because they anticipate that they cannot win. When one side simply will not show up to debate or vote on a bill it is a clear sign that the democratic process is breaking down. Republicans will probably start doing the same thing and it is wrong. They'll do it when they anticipate that they cannot win. Politicians on both sides who refuse to participate in the process when it isn't going their way should be subject to criminal penalties and removal from their elected positions. I'm not talking about some slow recall process but immediate arrest and removal. It has to stop.
