    Not true. All of the fire and police unions did not support Walker's campaign.

    In Wisconsin, 1100 teachers called in "sick" to protest the governor's new budget.

    I found the real crux of the teacher's union complaint:

    Milwaukee Teachers Fight for Viagra Coverage
    Despite Facing Budget Cuts and Layoffs, Teachers Fight For Taxpayer-Funded Erectile Dysfunction Drug

    (AP) With the district in a financial crisis and hundreds of its members facing layoffs, the Milwaukee teachers union is taking a peculiar stand: fighting to get its taxpayer-funded Viagra back.

    The union has asked a judge to order the school board to again include Pfizer Inc.'s erectile dysfunction drug and similar pills in its health insurance plans.

    This is a subversion of the democratic process. I hope the Republicans just let 'em stay in Illinois. We could use their spendable income. Chicken ****s.

    They don't want to come back anytime soon. They are staying at the Best Western Clock Tower Resort in Rockford. The Dems favorite restaurant is there. It's called the Tilted Kilt. If you want to see why they like it so much, here's a link:
