    exactly. and so long as we don't stump for ridiculous nation buidling while allowing the democracts to retain office by voting for use of force, while pretending to of been against it all along, they won't regain squat.

    hope and change stormed in on anti Iraq sentiment, not union support, health care support or other progressive bull**** support.

    Mine was in response to the "good old" Sgt post and the fact is the Bill was signed today. It is the law of Wisconsin so if the results are improved a year from now, liberals are in trouble

    In other words.....bleed the taxpayers dry, too.

    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.
    Well, golly, of course, in liberal-world it was the brave Democrats running and hiding in Illinois who were the heroes and the poor nits staying in Madison doing their job in the face of violent radicals are the cowards.

    Great job. War if Peace. Death is Life.

There are no free rides. You don't get something for nothing.

    Then because the tax breaks were not funded (offset) by another funding source other services must be cut, ie education.
    If a revenue source is lost and another revenue source doesn't take it's place, then the government has no other choice but to not spend money they don't have.

    That's why they call it a, budget.

    Ok, so, explain to us how much tax revenue public employees generate. This oughta be good.

    And yes, you should not have made the blanket statement. Some liberals you could maybe make a case for. "Many" I find highly doubtful and you'd have to back up your claims.
    Tax cuts don't always equate to a decrease in tax revenue.
