    Very easy for anyone capable of thinking. If there weren't any taxpayers how would govt. employees get paid? If there aren't any taxpayers private business still has a chance to succeed and private workers will still get paid by the customers.

    What about the lobbying expenses of these companies? Given that some of their revenue comes from the government, should they be barred from lobbying for more?
    Do you understand what lobbying really is? Name for me one lobbyist that actually votes on a bill? Further you continue to miss the point, without taxpayers the govt. wouldn't have the funds to hire anyone. Without tax funds private business still can remain in business.

    This makes no sense. Government employees pay taxes too.

    We could erect the worst socialist system imaginable where every job is a public job, and taxes could still be levied.

    You sure you are as capable as you led on?

    I really don't have a problem with anyone pushing for higher salaries but not salaries given to them by people who have been bought. Since it is the taxpayers money all pay and benefits bills should be voted on by the taxpayer not a politician that gets campaign funds from unions.

    Yes, they do but their taxes don't come close to funding their pay and benefits and you ought to know that.

    it isn't the tax payers money. They made a contract to pay a person for performing a service. The money belongs to that person that did the service. It is their money. The End.

    LMFAO.....you libs sure are great at spewing the same old talking points.....even if those talking points are borderline retarded. Anyone who believes the people in Wisconsin relied almost exclusively on political ads to shape their opinions on this race is either the dullest knife in the drawer or a partisan hack.

    Why in the hell should their taxes fund their salary? That is indentured servitude. The more you participate, the more clearly I see you don’t have a grasp on anything.
