    As far as buisnesses doing the lobbying of politicians to gain favor, Believe me when I state that should be stopped if at all possible. Or very very strict guidlines on when, where and how they lobby.
    Great. Why isn't Scott Walker doing that?

    OH...he isn't. Instead, his bill allows him to basically give away public utilities to the businesses who lobbied him and donated to his campaign! That's why he's attacking unions and wanted to give government property away to big business.

    That said, at least we agree on big business lobbying. But I won't allow a governor to force working people to forgo rights that are granted to everyone else.

    Doesn't matter the party that's doing it. If you believe workers have rights, then they have rights.

    That said, this doesn't take away their ability to negotiate payscales, which I consider to be the most important.

    73% of the massachusetts state house evidently believe workers have no rights

    evidently the dem mayor and the dem appointed emergency fiscal manager of detroit, bing and bobb, don't believe in rights, either

    This is just further stigma against the poor. One day it's the rich's fault for ruining the economy, the next it's the poor's. Honestly, Walker did this to score political points. It's not really going to change the situation. People relying on this safety net are going to fall through now and become more prone to crime, even if they are addicts.

    The war on drugs is the problem here. But I suppose Walker will get kick backs now from all the additional people being sent to prison.

    Make no mistake, slavery is alive and well in America today - it's called the prison system.
