The people of Wisconsin are on the side of unions, and he is wrong in refusing to negotiate, the 14 Democrats are on the side of the people and they are right in doing whatever it takes to force Walker to come to an agreement instead of insisting on his way, which will hurt many of the people in Wisconsin.

    Recent polls are showing that the majority in Wisconsin are on the side of unions in spite of attempts by some groups to sway the vote against unions by asking leading questions that would bias their opinion. It's about what the people want, not just what a governor and his party want.
    Exactly....and Walker is losing the war in the public arena. I would expect that Republicans are trying to figure out how to save face while finding a way out of the mess. Every day that this goes on, it is a victory for the people of the state of Wisconsin against a corrupt government that is seeking to silence the voice of the people.

    Really? I guess that's why the majority of people in Wisconsin are siding with the unions, right, because they are rejecting the unions!

    He wasn't elected to do any such thing...which is why the overwhelming majority of Wisconsins are pissed off and disagree with what this dictator wannabe is trying to do.

    and who makes the actual products? Your world - a world where you attempt to intellectually justify the absence of workers - is a nightmare and an abomination.

    I guess it would be fair to add that if Obama hadn't agreed to the tax cuts for the wealthy, the middle class would have paid the price by losing theirs - the ones that really need it. Why is it that one party always takes the side of the wealthy and the corporations over the middle-class, the ones that make corporations and wealthy people wealthy. The same seems to hold true for unions.

    Sorry, your link doesn't allow viewing of the article unless you are registered - most forums disapprove of such links, I'm not sure if this one does.
