    Wisconsin gov

    • Public service employees are finally making reasonable contributions to their pension and health benefits
    • Government employee unions no longer dictate work rules
    • Local school districts and governments with new latitude to renegotiate contracts have saved Wisconsin taxpayers $1 billion

    :rofl:

    Tough sell to WI voters IMO, both sides.

    What sensible Democrats whose tax money along with others has been spent on funding spoiled public sector union stooges' pensions and benefits doesn't want them to pay their fair share just like the other workers throughout the state? The stooges had a sweet deal for years but at last they're having to ante up some of their own money, albeit not a the rates others have to pay. Not yet anyhow.

    Had to laugh at Barrets campaign sound bites.

    Shit. The whole recall was supposedly about the public sector unions rights.

    The economy, jobs and investigations into Walkers aides? Thats what he campaigned on??

    Jeeze. What happened to all the "Rights" the unions and Dems were bitching about??

    Don't blame Barry. Hell I'd fly over WI as well. Wonder if he waved as he was going past??

    He has done very well under very difficult circumstances. The Unions/Democrats have thwarted him at every turn. But he is making a difference. He's getting their Budget under control and creating a much friendlier Business environment. He's cleaning up an awful Union/Democrat mess. And i'm sure common sense thinking Wisconsin Citizens understand that. I'll be rooting for him today.

    do you have an idea of what will happen to this state in a few years if they trash their teachers, nurses, firemen and police and cut their pay?

    considering that has not happened as is not being planned, it's a dumb question.
