    Do you really believe this? Do you believe that people don't look at their deductions? You don't think payroll deductions could be for convenience? When I worked and had a mortgage and car payment, I signed up for payroll deduction, my money was sent directly to my credit union. Convenience. Efficiency.

    Public unions don't create jobs, the need for state services does create jobs though.
    The cost to the Wisconsin taxpayers are lower if the state doesn't have to pay higher than private sector benefits and that is a cost passed on to employers through higher taxes.

    People do look at it as a deduction and accept it as such. The point is if they wrote a check their attitude would be different, the same holds true of taxes. People should be required to write a check each month for their taxes just to realize how much is being taken out.

    That perfectly describes your posts. Projection.

    Right, bea.gov, bls.gov, U.S. Treasury data are projections in the liberal world but blog sites are factual? No wonder liberalism has no credibility.

    It doesn't create jobs. If Walker ran for governor on this issue, he likely wouldn't have been elected. He's a snake in the grass. The week after taking office he had the legislature ram this under the false premise it was all about the budget. It isn't Gov. Walker is hoping to be seen as the next Reagan.

    Why is it that liberals are afraid of data from verifiable, non partisan sites? Hmmm

    Why did you turn down a chance for a controlled debate?
