    Looks like Ohio may beat Wisconsin to the punch, as the Ohio Dems are man enough to show up and live up to their possible defeat rather than running like children.

    Last night on the news, they said the Ohio bill was even worse for unions than the Wisconsin bill.

    The Ohio bill passed the house, and is in the Republican controlled Senate, then to the Republican governor.

    Games up boys. Unions are gonna slowly be dismantled. The massive influx of cash from unions to Democrat candidates will be severely cut off from these union break ups. Combined with the SCOTUS decision to allow corporations their freedom of speech to give to candidates, this spells doom for a lot of Democrats in future elections.

    No, no, NO.

    They're going to recall ALL the republicans in the Wisconsin Senate and that will fix it all.

    Don't pay any attention to Rhode Island, either.

    It's the new reality. We just can't afford unions at the public sector level anymore.

    I think Unionizing every public employee will solve all the states budget woes because uh, er, well I don't know why, it just will.

    I think we should all promote the unions and support them in every way... all the way up until the time we go bankrupt. It's the Democratic way.

    I predict that Ohio passing this bill will not end the bill and in the long run will provide Ohio with a surplus like some other non-unionized states like Virginia

    How is this a Union busting bill?

    Even WI is not a Union busting bill, why are you saying this? If the Union fails in WI it's because it's members left, the bill does not dissolve the Union in any way.
