    Let's see what a Wisconsin expert had to say...





    An estimate from the people that are actually in charge of the facility...



    PolitiFact Wisconsin | Wisconsin officials claim cleaning up the state Capitol will cost $7.5 million
    Just like with all leftwing individuals you believe anytime something goes against you it comes from Fox News. Doesn't look like Fox News to me

    The Wisconsin Department of Administration estimates it could cost the state $8 million to restore the Capitol to its pre-protest condition, Wisconsin media are reporting. The estimate includes $500,000 to remove adhesive from taped posters, $1 million to repair the structure's exterior and $6.5 million for rebuffing the interior marble.

    Capitol protesters out, but high clean-up costs remain

    Going to play the liberal game here, show me a link where union negotiations, were about any of the things you listed in your post

    A running debate among those on both sides of the voucher issue is whether students benefit academically from attending private schools. Both sides have pointed to research that supports their position.
    Such is life.

    Interesting. Why do they have to be there to represent their electorate? Why can't choosing no to be there be a way to represent their electorate?

    It doesn't matter which political party it is. Trying to argue that we need unions to provide a counterbalance to elected officials is asinine; the officials were elected by the public, the unions weren't. If the public wants someone to oppose the people in power, they can vote for a different group of people in the next election. They don't need an undemocratic institution like a union to provide that opposition.

    I feel like I'm supposed to respond to you with some article that supports my point, but both of us could do that to the end of time. It doesn't matter. I know what I've experienced, you know what you've experienced. I think you're ignorant. I vote in every election and contribute to the party that I most agree with to stop you from ruining the country. You'll do the same for me and in how ever many years, we'll both be dead and none of it will matter.

    The officials (Democrats) who support the unions (like the AFT) were elected just like the officials (Republicans) who support corporations (like horrible employer Wal-Mart) were elected.

    Some of the public does want unions because...SURPRISE...union members are part of the public.
