    If that is the case, the union should refund all the dues they have been taking.

    Since people are no longer required to pay and the state is no longer collecting the dues autmatically, the unions are taking in a hella lot less money - which is the reason they are so upset. They don't seem to like it when people get to make a choice where to spend their money.

    And why would anyone pay union dues when the state has effectively neutered the union?

    Why do state employees need unions when the private sector overwhelmingly does without them?

    Which would of course figure right into you less than Machiavellian plan. Your goals have all the subtlety of a chain saw going into a shinbone.

    If Walker wanted to turn the tide he could always put up a tollway at the IL border and charge those F.I.B.S.. (and ONLY F.I.B.S.,) for driving into the state. And put a toll for them every 5 miles thereafter.

    All Wisconsinites hate the ****ing Illinois gives us just to drive on their roads. And to add insult to injury, the toll doubles for the last mile or so before you actually cross the border going home.
