    Hell, you could answer that question for yourself. Would you be willing to give up automatic state deduction and paying of union dues for the right of public sector unions to exist?

    You really are fun.
    ever get around to posting that evidence?? thought not

    What it will show after the recall vote is whether or not those who elected Walker to office feel that he did not or did campaign on an honest platform. If tyhe decision is that he campaigned honestly he will remain in office if not he will be removed.

    PolitiFact Wisconsin | Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he campaigned on his budget repair plan, including curtailing collective bargaining

    Politicians normally tell people what they want to hear and then do what they want to/can do, if nothing else this will serve as a warning to them that people are ready to take action

    I would greatly appreciate it if we could keen the debate above the personal and name calling.

    I will await your actual verifiable evidence to support your claims.

    Could you please explain the point of asking this question? I fail to see the relevance of it or the importance of it to the issues being discussed.

    I do believe though that he did run with the promise of cutting spending and fixing the debt.

    Now show me one politician that says exactly how they are going to do what they say they are going to do.

    Prove this. Nothing in Walkers bill busted Unions. None of it stopped unions from forming or petitioning the government.

    Are you really taking the honest position that Walker and his new bills did not negatively impact the unions?

    Everything negatively or positively affects everything else. But busting unions and negatively affecting unions are two different animals. Or are you just trying to move the goalposts?

    Good point. I was just trying to be funny. Didn't work, I guess. Sorry.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
