    So had the unions merely outspent the Koch brothers so that the Dem had a 7.5 to 1 spending advantage in the race... the public would have been so much more informed according to your logic. Wow... What an unbelievable revelation. lol

    I have posted the link many times, and since you watch me so closely you should have seen it, Walker has been in office since January 2011 and has been attacked ever since. The rate when he took office was 7.7 and that rate is now 6.7%. He has been under attack since taking office

    i've had this argument with him before, he seems to think that even though the state worker performs a service to earn that money, that the "state"(taxpayers) get to dictate to the individual how they are to spend their paycheck, he believes, even after the money has been paid, the 'taxpayer' has a claim on it.

    Probably the same number of union heads that vote on a bill. Of course I understand what lobbying is. Unions do it too. That's the game and how it's played.

    There are many companies that would be forced to go out of business or scale way back without defense contracts, and would have to fire a lot of people. The funding for these contracts comes from taxes.

    Compare them to their neighbors IL and MI (woops MI has a GOP governor now too). ;-)
