    Of course they had those clauses. The Unions tried to make agreements that favored them, it's not rocket science. School boards are elected to keep these things in mind, that's their job. The Union's job is to try to get what they can for their members.

    amazing, isn't it
    those on the reich want to blame the unions for cutting a good deal
    they NEVER blame the managers on the other side of the table who agree to such terms that are fiscally irresponsible
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    That's true. They shouldn't have. However, this is the problem with public unions. The unions themselves are negotiating against people that are sympathetic and are looking out for the unions as much as possible. So, they rushed contracts through to ensure the teachers woud still be taken care of, not at all concerned, or possible not having a clue, of the negative repercussions.

    The School boards have asked the unions to reopen their contracts to provide the pension and health care benefits (that you insist they already agreed to) so that they won't have to fire teachers or make other budgetary cuts. The teacher's unions said no. If this was something that they already agreed to, why aren't they doing it? Because the unions were playing games with their supposed agreement. It was never real.

    Nope. The "reich" wing (so clever by the way, well done ) is saying that the individuals that are negotiating with the unions are also to blame. That's the very problem with public unions.

    so, the unions cut a good deal and you blame them

    wouldn't a smart person instead blame the fool across the table who agreed to contract terms that were fiscally irresponsible

    Other than his attempting fiscally responsible government by not continueing the unfettered support of the union parasites which you love so much, I wonder if you can tell me what the state of Wisconsins fiscal affairs were prior to his election and what they are forcasted to be with their current spending? Do you have any skin in the game? Are your granchildren going to be the ones that have to pay for this generations continued wreckless and idiotic spending all because people like you care only about that free government cheese? If so...I hope your grandkids **** on your grave as well for the debt increases people like you are clamoring for.

    a decade ago, a progressive administration left office with the federal government running an economic surplus
    only ten years later, after tax giveaways to the elite, unfunded wars, and deregulation of our economic system by your boys, we are on the brink of disaster
    forget the free government cheese. your ilk have eaten our nation's seed corn
    with any luck, a progressive administration can correct our affairs of state, despite the stupidity exhibited by your side
