    Sure Snyder could veto this thing.  But why would he do that?  This bill is exactly what he stands for.  And of course he could make it subject to referendum - if Republicans believed in democracy.

    What on earth makes you think that will happen?

      If you really think he will do anything but push through what they already have as it is, you really need to grab the smelling salts.

      first, to be clear, he would just have to veto the unrelated appropriation, which keeps it from being subject to a referendum.

      Why not try to convince him to exercise the veto?  Nothing lost, is there.  

      The last paragraph makes no sense only if you concede defeat at this point, and I don't see why we should do that.  A long shot -- maybe.  But what the heck, see if there's any pressure to put on the guy.  (Remember, John Roberts caved -- why not Snyder?)

    •  That's what I was wondering. (0+ / 0-)

      Why are we even discussing a veto as if there's any reason to expect one when Snyder spent his whole term so far trying to bust unions? He works for Koches and Rove and Adelman, not for workers or human beings.
