    Negotiating a contract on the basis of a stay on an existing law that is still under scrutiny before the state SCOTUS is negotiating in bad faith. It also reeks of conflict of interest. Should the state challenge the contracts in court, the unions wont have a leg to stand on.

    Is it just me or does it seem that the liberals who oppose this ruling don't even realize that they ruled that public service employees (taxpayer funded employees) cannot unionize. NOTHING is stopping private sector employees in WI from unionizing. The taxpayers have decided no unions on their dime and the supreme court has ruled in favor. You want to join a union? Work in the private sector, and join all you want. As long as your paycheck comes out of the taxpayers coffers, you will have to listen to the voice of the taxpayers. It is no different than an employee having to listen to their boss. The boss issues the paycheck, you do what he wants or go elsewhere. Same rule applies to state employees.

    Good job, Wisconsin!

    agreed, its really simple at the core.
    majority rules in a democracy.

    the dems, along with the unions somehow felt the majority was a bunch of half wits holding camp at the state house in front of the cameras.

    Such a determination should have been made by a court -- not via legislative nullification.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Right -- except that this isn't a democracy at all. Many checks have been put in place to prevent the rights of the minority from being violated by the will of the majority.

    This is about taxpayer-paid employees ability to unionize against taxpayers. It was so grotesquely convoluted to begin with that this decision should fall under the heading of "duh".

    This is great news, though the three who voted against it should be waterboarded.

    Now if we can kill Obamacare, it will mark the first two REAL signs that, in fact, the Consititution hasn't been reduced to toilet paper.

    I wholeheartedly believe that public unions have way way way too much power, and that they are catered too way way way too often for the sake of political expediency.

    My point is that for the government to enter into legally binding contracts when it is politically expedient and then use the force of law to break them when it is politically expedient is wrong and shouldn't be allowed.
