    I have heard Walker interviewed several times over the last week. What strikes me is that the bill being touted as anti-worker is actually just the opposite.

    He has a certain amount of funds with which to work. He has determined that there will need to be thousands of public sector jobs completely eliminated to balance the budget if concessions by the public employees are not made.

    So the question for liberals is which would you prefer? Would you rather see thousands forced into unemployment while the current concessions are rejected?



    These answers seem simple. This helps one to see through the turmoil. It simply has to do with power and liberals feeling like they are losing a toehold.

    you clearly aren't informed.

    all monetary concessions have been made. the only thing holding up the legislation is his unwillingness to budge on the collective bargaining issue.

    the budget has absolutely nothing to do with this fight anymore.

    The left simply once to postpone this issue, which will arise once again.

    I don't think the runaway Dems will be in town to vote on a balanced bill anyway, with or without the collective bargaining piece, will they?

    The liberals want to keep unions in power because they get a tremendous amount of financial support from the dues collected by the union members. But thank you for admitting that the reason they are in turmoil is because they need that power base.

    The Governor wants to alleviate union power because Dems get a tremendous amount of financial support from the dues collected from the union members. Thank you for admitting that the reason they are in turmoil is because he wants to destroy that power base.

    So, you're good with funneling large amounts of taxpayer money to only one political party.

    Thanks for the inadvertent honesty.

    Walker wants to bust unions. Walker is anti-worker. Walker is a liar and has crossed the ethics provision line of WI law when he admitted those truths in the prank call. The law suits will be filed by next Tuesday. He opened his mouth and put his foot in it. What a stupid, crass arrogant exercise of stupidity. He will pay for it, and America will be better off.

    Well... Yeah, that's the reality of what's going on here, ain't it? The Republic party gets most of its donations from very wealthy businesses and businessmen, and the Democrats get the vastly larger cut, indirectly, from working people.

    Didn't say it was a great situation, but it is a main reason Republicans are so anti-union... That and the fact that unionization is bad for the wealthy people for whom they advocate.

    Budget? Pshaw. Budget in Wisconsin's got nothing to do with it. The union already offered to make the requested concessions.
