    Am I right to assume that you believe the only reason that any of these states are in trouble is because of unions and that there is no feasible alternative besides stripping them of their bargaining rights in order to keep the states from going under?

    they bitch and whine about having to pay a portion of their benefits. screw them, I've been doing that for 30 freakin years.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    My point is, as a resident of New York, I know from experience that the unions have a lot of influence here, between what they spend themselves on vilifying their opposition and donate to the candidates that support them.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    How is that considering those in WI agreed to reduce their compensation. Why do conservatives on this board keep forgetting that? Take their agreement to lower their own compensation and someone let Walker know that cutting taxes when having a budget shortfall is completely idiotic and all the sudden things aren't so bad.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Because we like the idea of worker safety, five day work weeks, and all the other useful unions helped to create and would rather not see those good things eroded.

    Push polls always derive the desired results. Nothing new there.

    Network Push polls sold as a news event, is like students grading their own papers.
