    In that case, you must mean this:

    On Friday, Walker said he supports a bill that would end double dipping. But the Republican governor has no plans to ask his appointees to stop taking their pensions, spokesman Cullen Werwie said.
    ".....has no plans to ask his appointees to stop...." does not mean:

    I'll also point out that Walker would exempt his own staffers who are drawing state pensions.
    I thought there was hope for you. I see I was wrong. Too bad.

    Now you seem to have lost the thread of your own questions, or you really do have a reading disability. Best to move on.

    Nice try, Adam. No cigar.

    Well, keep plugging away then. I suggest you start by going back and reading your own question and then look for the perfectly obvious answer to it in the quote I already provided.

    Do you recognize how ridiculous your statement is?

    Lets see.....the right of people to stand up for their rights against the government and to negotiate for their salaries and benefits.....THAT is what you call socialism? LOL.....

    Talk about backwards thinking.

    What you are failing to recognize is they aren't a "silent majority". You also fail to understand the difference between a statewide seat and district elections.
    Even Republicans are turning against this turket. Walker is toast. He made his bed, now its time for him to lie in it.

    Then again, you can fool some of the people some of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

    The fact of the matter is that the middle class public worker is NOT responsible for cleaning out the treasury in Wisconsin. The real culprit is the private sector, upper class nabob with controlling interest in a company (perhaps even one that has outsourced its labor to Mexico and Bangladesh) that is allowed to charge the State of Wisconsin three to five times fair market value on whatever widget this nabob's company provides to the State of Wisconsin. How can this happen? It happens because said nabob has made a rather large contribution to the political party that steered him the sweetheart contract. These sort of shenanigans have been going on for decades, and the nabobs have only gotten greedier. It was really only a matter of time until they cleaned out the treasuries of just about every state in the union where machine politics is entrenched.

    You do not hear too much about this phenomenon in the media because the media is largely owned by upper class nabobs. Now that these pigs have emptied the trough, and people are starting to ask "Where the hell have all our tax dollars gone?" the pigs are using their controlling interest in mass media to point the finger at middle class public workers.

    And people like you are being duped, once again.

    Please provide a listing of WI's biggest expenses so we can see where all of the tax payer money is really going. That is the only way in which we can all determine what cuts will have the biggest affect. In other words, I'm not sure how you can balance the 3.8 bil. dollar WI shortfall without making cuts to the category that is causing at least 40% of the state's spending and nearly 50% of the local government's spending.

    BTW, I would agree in a sense. It really isn't just the public sector employee, it's also the public sector union bosses and the tax payer representitves at the bargaining table that enable them and give away the farm.
