    Re: Wisconsin governor gives Democrats ultimatum

    I have scanned the various post of this thread, some I agree with some I do not.

    This Republican Governor of Wisconsin and I'm going out on a limb here and saying during his campaign speech he promised better education opurtunities in Wisconsin, yet now he's going back on an agreement that may cost a lot of good teachers their jobs and a lot of young people the right teacher to work with.

    That's kinda odd, or you might say a coincedence.
    Cause the new Governor of Michigan promised more oppurtunities in education, yet 9 programs, and 17 degrees are being cut from Lansing Community College.

    Recently I changed my voting regester from Democrat to Independant, because we ask Obama for change I don;t see any.

    These Governors promised better education I don't see any.

    Just because I'm an Independant voter does not mean I don't watch.
    I think a lot of Independants in Wisconsin and Michigan are watching.

    Obama promised change he failed, come election time he should start looking for another zip code.
    The Governor of Michigan promised better education ,more oppurtunities he failed, come election he can look for another zip code.

    As for Wisconsin well, that is up tothe people of Wisconsin.

    I leave the people of Wisconsin with this, if this governor don't back the state's agreement with the teachers what makes you think he'll back the state of Wisconsin in other agreements?

    The Governor and the GOP are getting trounced in the arena of public opinion, most people siding 2-1 with the workers over the government. Governmor walker is coming across like a dictator and will fail miserably.

    He's got four years to worry about it.... until then, either the fleebaggers come home or the pink slips go out.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    anybody living in the midwest would disagree. I'm in northwestern Illinois, but I can see Wisconsin from my backyard. I sense a majority that sides with the governor.

    I would never tell the people of Wisconsin what to do while living in Michigan.

    However I can agree that the people of Wisconsin are wise in this decision.

    So to summarize, to close the current fiscal period's deficit, they need to refinance the debt by 03/16. It takes 2-3 weeks to do this, so the drop dead date to have this completed is today'ish. While the rest of the debt could be refinanced sometime in the future, it won't be in time to close the current deficit.

    I don't beleive this is what you were saying at the beginning of all of this. Who knows, I could be wrong. You were making some long posts there, and I couldn't always read entire things.

    Now, do they need some longer term solutions? Absolutely. Walker is unveiling his budget today, I think. So, they'll be plenty more for you to yell about shortly.

    He can be recalled after one year. I'd be surprized if he sticks around that long. I look for him to take the Sara Palin way out.

    most every poll that has come out....has it 60% or more in favor of the workers over the government. Only 30% of the population sides with the government.

    Wisconsin is also a neighbor to Michigan they are not the kind of people to lay down that includes teachers and friends and family of teachers.
