    This is great for the state of Wisconsin, I applaud the Senate for a job well done.

    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    The police and fire departments do not make up all of Walkers voters and generally republicans are anti-union while democrats are pro-union. So yes the republicans are supporting and enacting legislation their voters want and opposing and preventing legislation their voters do not want. I said the same thing when the democrats fled to prevent a quorum.

    The GOP is overreaching.
    How so?

    One thing I always thought conservatives could understand was that people don't like it when you take away their rights - aren't they always whining about gun rights and the like - they're done.
    Unless it is stated in the constitution then you can not call something a right. you and I have the right to keep and bear arms without the government infringing on that right because it says so in the 2nd amendment. Where does it say that you have the right to join a union (or some cases forced to join a union if you want a certain job,which is the opposite of something being a right)?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Walker is done. That two-faced ass is out of there as soon as he can legally be recalled.

    I don't know if they're cowards, they just risked a massive recall to carry out the agenda of a few billionaire GOP supporters...

    I'd say they're just dumb cheeseheads.
    Hehehe, Dems getting a bit of their own medicine.

    Not true. In passing the bill, Republicans stripped out ALL of the economic measures, and the version that went to the floor ONLY dealt with busting the union. NOTHING was passed that dealt with the budget. And therein, we now see the real motivation for this move, which was to repay the funding and favors given by the Koch Brothers to the Wisconsin Republican party. The GOP will soon be dead in that state. They have picked a fight that they are surely going to lose.

    Bold part: In case you hadn't heard the laws that lead to the lending problem began with Clinton, under a democratic controlled Congress.

    As far as the war goes...I'm sure those in Iraq wouldn't consider "unnecessary". IE just depends upon your perspective on whether it was necessary or not.

    As for the US being fully capable of fulfilling the demands of public workers pay....Have you SEEN the national debt lately? $14 trillion dollars in debt. How in the world do you expect the US to pay every single employee without making some cuts? Borrow more? The old saying of "money doesn't grow on tree's" isn't just a meaningless saying you know.
