    I feel any elected official that flees his/her jurisdiction to avoid having to do their jobs should be fired.
    I haven't read this thread yet, but I wholeheartedly agree. If they aren't going to do their job, they need to go. IMHO - these people are cowards - pure and simple. Can't take the heat... get out of the kitchen.

    Not only did Boo total fail on that 2009 link (good one!) but there are lots of county's affected not just Dane County. As per the Governor this morning, not one locality has identified they'd agree to the amounts described which are:

    12.6% total pay in to pensions
    5.8% increase to health benefits
    The ability for local county's to negotiate the bargaining agreement to ENFORCE these increases, without which, any agreement wouldn't be worth the paper it's written on.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I wish it was a criminal offense and they would get arrested. Complete deriliction of duty. New Law Idea: Anybody walks out on their duty in Congress put them in the brig and give their vote to the opposition to do with it what they will. Either stay and vote your conscience or lose that right.

    LOL. . . .The 2009 article dispels the 'greedy teacher' meme put forth by the extremists. Seems as though they have been sacrificing for some time now.

    You didn't even read it. It was about one small group in one county. Do your homework. And what's "meme"?

    What a sacrifice... private sectors been sacrificing for 20+ years. Amazingly, we don't get a 100K early retirement with medical coverage for the rest of our lives in the private sector.

    No, one is a refernce back to 2009, showing their willingness. The other is a link to the present, not to mention the governor is quoted on Fox News Sunday in the stewart clip (I guess his word doesn't count). But continue the search:

    On Sunday, WEAC President Mary Bell reiterated that money issues have been taken off the table. "Public employees have agreed to Governor Walker’s pension and health care concessions, which he says will solve the budget challenge. But Governor Walker’s bill goes too far and he has chosen polarizing rhetoric," she said.

    Thank you, Boo. You are the only poster who did homework. I appreciate the time you spent finding that.

    I wonder, then, if Walker is also looking for the union to agree that any increase over CPI will have to be voted on by taxpayers. If he got that and still kept going, then I'd agree his main purpose is to bust the union. Not that I'm entirely against that, but I do blame the negotiators on the taxpayer side more than anyone(thing) else.
