    Because worker A got tired of worker B stealing from them.

    In the end, this recall election was not about workers at all, but about how Barrett had no plan. Workers rights appealed to the left, and busting the unions appealed to the right, but this issue is not what independents were looking at. To win, getting your base to the voting booth is not enough. You have to win independents. Barrett failed to do that. Walker was able to do that. End of story.

    There are 53 people viewing this thread. I don't care how much Dems try to downplay this election. It's a big deal. If Obamacare gets struck down, the POTUS may find himself in a tailspin he can't get out of.

    Hard to say. An equally interesting question will be whether or not all those who go on about Asange and Manning and others about needing to be considered innocent until proven guilty, even on a personal level rather than a government level, will suggest that simply the CHARGE against Walker doesn't indicate that he's guilty or that he should be treated as such.

    No. After 18 months of whining and BS from the left, it was about how the Public Sector Unions are full of ****.

    In context of the argument here, to present it suggest that. Otherwise, I could throw in any meaningless fact and say I'm factually correct, right?

    As for fiscal policy, you have to show the connection. I'm not sure how making more people unemployed helps this. I say unemployed because the numbers presented related to being unemployed, and cut backs lead to more unemployed.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
