    There are no winners--just taking money from one institution and dumping it into another.

    What is clear is that the union leaders failed their members miserably. Politics is a game where the only meaningful goal is to WIN. If the union leaders had any muscle, they would've played dirty, i. e. starting a fund for women who had an affair w/Walker to come forward in exchange for a reward. It's well known that most all pols have extra-marital affairs yet the unions failed to exploit that to their advantage.
    Which subsidies would those be?

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    pshaw, that's nothing. 100% of the Jobs Obama promised us in the stimulus haven't shown up.

    as for the defense of the bill - excellent. even better that Public Unions wasted so much on this and still lost. Here's hoping this leaves them drained in 2012.

    Yep, you will probably get your wish. When corporate America takes final control you will be a slave and won't have to pay taxes,... just labor in exchange for a bowl of gruel.

    When you have no government employees, you will have corporate government control, and whatever they wish on you any given day. They have managed to strip away any baragaining right, and by gosh you will work for soup & a bed roll if tey tell you to.
