    The taxpayers spoke on Nov. 2, 2010 and "elections have consequences" according to "your" President except of course when the elections don't turn out in favor of Democrats. The vast majority are fickle and will turn around when Wisconsin attracts new businesses, jobs are being created, and the budget balanced. Since you aren't from Wisconsin it is very easy for you to demand someone else pay higher taxes to fund public unions.

    True or False, collective bargaining is how the current policies that the union is conceeding to came into being and could potentially be used to bring them back into being?

    It it entirely posisble to tie this to money. Not immediete money, but long term stability. You may not agree, but you can't say there's absolutely no way this can be about money

    With how much people seemingly that lean left are quoting polls in this thread as the end all be all, I'm sure you all are in favor of repealing health care then since the polls show the voters are opposed to it staying law?

    They say this was a breach of democracy.

    Democracy demands voting.

    Because the democrats breached democracy by shamefully fleeing a democratic vote, all of them and their supporters have no one to blame but themselves.

These types of actions are an expression of democratic ideals - voting is NOT the only way.
    If the democrats hadn't used a subversive maneuver to flee a democratic vote by leaving the state, then they wouldn't have to complain about being manuevered democratically. Lol.

    Nice avy.

    Please post a current poll that shows the public wants the health care bill repealed.

    All they need is the BELIEF that your city or town will be in economic trouble and they can take over and get rid of your elected officials os the ones who run the place and put in their own wanna-be dictators who answer to nobody in that town.

    Believe it Maggie. Its happening.

    this is from the mirs news serice which is a subscription service that our office pays for

    A similar bill has already passed the House. Small government Republican conservatives voting to allow big state government to take over your town or city and run things their own way. This is just one of a bunch of such bills being pushed here to ram government down the throats of people. And they all come from Republicans
    Shhhezz I would have thought you would be all for that, that almost mirrors much of the new regulation that Obama has put on Big Business doesn't it ??
