    The big difference is companies go out of business, states don't. Taxpayers continue to fund state expenses including unions and their benefits which by the way Wisconsin workers don't contribute to until the bill that was just passed.

    Tell me who funds public union benefits in Wisconsin even if you won't buy that the taxpayers fund their salaries which include their union dues.

    Didn't watch the video I see.

    Competition among businesses forces private-sector unions to be reasonable in their demands or face losing employment for their members by causing a business bankruptcy. With government, however, there is no such competition.

    I sure did, it had the standard lie in it implying that public employees are overpaid, when we both know that isnít so.
