    And somebody should tell those stupid protesters that, duh, the state cannot afford to pay all of you, so either you take a cut in your fat, union-inflated salaries or a whole bunch of you spoiled fools (who should be damned happy just to have a job in this economy) are going to join the ranks of the unemployed.

    I just hate this "I've got mine, I don't care what happens to them" attitude. It sucks.
    from some of the interviews i've heard, those protesting are ok with with contributing more to their pensions and healthcare....what the governor is doing is union busting, pure and simple...

    i'm sorry, but union busting and lower taxes for the wealthy is little less than the party-for-the-wealthy normally do

    i applaud those democratic senators.....the governor, as i'm sure he well knows, could sit down and negotiate with the unions....he doesnt want to....he knows he could get most, if not all the concessions he is seeking right now, but for him, that isnt enough...he sees this as a chance to bust unions in wisconsin, and eventually turn wisconsin into a 'right to work' state.

    Re: Wisconsin Governor to Missing Democrats: Do Your Job

    I was born and lived in Wisconsin until recently and I am happy with the actions the democrats are taking. I can also point out that I have many friends who voted for Walker who are very against his proposal. As it's been said, it's union busting, plain and simple. This is not what bothers me most. The biggest issue is the blatant favoritism towards his supporters. Public safety unions strongly supported his election. Public safety is retaining collective bargaining, while all others are being targeted. This is where the the majority of the outrage should lie in my opinion.
