Democrats and union organizers are working feverishly. A truly historic event took place in WI as state senators actually abandoned their positions and fled the state to avoid a vote that will hurt the unions. Organizers are bussing people from other states, some even rumored to be paid protesters...Doctors flirting with heavy fines and possibly losing their licence...all to try and build/maintain unnatural protester numbers. Why? Simple...they know they are more likely to lose it all then simply even maintain their position. They broke the age-old "deal". The deal for decades between public and private employment is public = lower wages, but better benefits...more paid time off and lower retirement age. But over the past 10 years, in many areas - including WI - the public sector is making the same or MORE than private...and still have all of the extraordinary benefits. You lost us. We have no sympathy for your greed. The private sector is reeling from high unemployment, reduced wages, higher benefit cost sharing, reduced hours etc. etc, etc....and you guys wanna complain that you don;t want to pay almost HALF what we pay for health coverage. And you refuse to loosen the rules where you cannot be fired even if you suck at your job? You lost us. You cheated on the deal...you need to suffer for it.
