    It's not like a cop can hire an agent to represent him He/she has to depend on collective bargaining, via their union.

    Romney pointed out that three of the biggest problems in the country are teachers, policemen and firemen. He, along with most of the Republicans, don't see any need for more than the bare minimum. What we need to be spending our resources on is policing women's bodies. The GOP thinks women can't take care of themselves, which is why the GOP feels they should be paid less than men. To give the men money to take care of those poor unfortunates.

    I voted for Scott. I've met Scott and he is a typical nerdy type!
    And being a nerdy type he is though an executive and like most executives doesn't have a good manipulation of the MSM which is where most of the negative perceptions are coming from!

    Case in point the Broward policemen's latest moan.
    Geez.. how sad they have to contribute to their pension!
    Almost ALL for profit companies have moved towards employee's contributing and it is now the whiny.. public employees bitching about paying THEIR fair share!

    How many municipalities in this country are nearly broke BECAUSE of UNION mandated pension paid entirely by the cities?

    So Scott like Walker has simply asked public employees to help out their employers that have seen property values decline which in turn decline property taxes.. something evidently most public employees don't consider!

    Lower property tax revenue means more decisions regarding expenditures.
    It is that simple!
    But evidently to complicated for the Broward Police!

    According to the Sun-Sentinel salary database, there were 5,331 employees in the Broward County Sheriff's Office in 2009.[3]
    The highest paid employee is Lieutenant Daphnys Jean-Baptiste with total compensation of $287,357.74 There are 19 employees that earned more than $150,000 in total pay.

    Medical insurance
    Life, dental, vision, and disability insurance
    Retirement plan under the Florida Retirement System
    Leave including sick, annual, holiday, military, ect
    24-hour fitness center
    Wellness programs
    Additional benefits for deputies

    Training academy paid for
    Laptop and take-home vehicle provided
    Uniform

    The Broward County Sheriff's Office has about 2,900 employees with take home vehicles and union members that do not receive vehicles receive $453 a month.
    Gas and maintenance for the take-home vehicles is paid for by the Sheriff's Office.[6]

    FACTS had a way of getting in the way of biased inaccurate opinions!

    The police get very generous pension terms in Florida, way more so than other government workers. It's something like 2x better. So Scott is changing that.

    So at least we have to Scott some credit for being consistent. Walker left the police union out of his union-busting scheme because they supported him.
