    Just sort of curious to the forum sentiment as far as the political fallout nationwide..............

    Of course, a necessary preface is that the last two years have seen disasterous levels of unemployment in the private sector and a massive growth in the public sector while union employees continue to pay nothing for their retirement and medical.

    So..........who wins here? Which party?

    Easy, the GOP does.

    You've got hundreds of millions of people watching this. Many of them, almost 20%, are either unemployed or underemployed. Another 25% or so haven't gotten cola raises or any raises in years, or had to take pay cuts to stay employed. They know the economy sucks.

    And they're watching 30,000 union members who average $89,500 a year falsifying gov't documents to skip work to whine about their work status? They arent getting laid off. They are well paid. And they're marching?

    The public at large is sick of them. It's gonna cause a backlash against the left, well, for the few that still support the left after Obama.

    After this, ONLY the radical, far left delusional Dem's will vote Dem.

    And the GOP wins because, well, they're doing exactly what they got elected to do. Massive gov't debt scares people. We've woken up to this fact. And seeing the GOP actually cutting spending is proof that we need to vote them in more often.

    If the bureaucrat unions win, they lose.

    They can either concede or have hundreds of their positions eliminated.

    Can't wait to see the future political ads about Dems fleeing the political process. That alone will be....priceless!

    Yep. That sure looks good to the voters.

    If you don't get your way or something that you don't like is going on why just pick up your marbles and desert.

    Should look good on the resume doncha think??

    If you don't desert, then bus in people to fill your ranks, leave your desk & march in protest against the will of the people!

    Dumb people! Those teachers'll show them!

    In the short run Reps, but in the long run people are going to get upset, if long-held benefits, benefits also enjoyed by non-union workers, are curtailed. This isn't about the money now, but an underhanded power grab.

    Quit lying about their compensation. Show a bit of dignity for once in your wretched excuse for a life.

    The unions already won the public opinion battle in Wisconsin when they agreed to the benefits concessions Walker demanded.
