    A special interest group represents a special interest group. They do not represent the entire nation.

    The liberals received $94.1 M and the Conservatives received $190 M. Is that what you call marginal? If you remove the Unions from the picture than all of the big money goes to the GOP.
    First of all, that is false. Look at my statistics again. Massive corporations gave dozens of millions of dollars to BOTH parties, not just the republicans. Second, 94 mil versus 190 mil is also irrelevant, IMHO. It's like comparing the death rates under Hitler and Stalin and claiming Hitler was more benevolent than Stalin because he killed less people. In the end, they're both psychopathic murderers and in the end, both political parties are prostituting themselves to corporate and union interests.

    Than why was all of the big corporate money in 2010 going to support one side?
    Again, false.

    The average income for Wisconsin educators which includes administrators is $75,000 (and that amount includes benefits). I am only counting five figures.
    Usually, the six-figures come after overtime pay is factored into the equation. Teachers and administrators may be the exception. But firefighters, police, and garbage men are making around 75K a year before overtime and after overtime kicks in, they're well into the six-figure range. Source = 60 Minutes.

    maybe they are maybe there are not but what we do know is that the system is not able to prevent that when those who are bargaining with the Pub Sec unions don't have the taxpayers purse as their only interest

    What is popular is not always right and vice versa. You obviously vote for the bandwagon.

    No, but my assertion that you live in fantasyland is backed by your ridiculous claims that Reagan's spending has yet to be matched (both GWB and Obama far exceeded Reagan's spending habits) and Reagan ruined our chances of energy independence. The last comment was by far the most bogus of them all.

    why do you make stuff up? can you find one ONE (1) (Uno) post of mine where I support "willingly hand billions of corporate welfare"

    and I suspect what you define corporate welfare will be rather stupid

    Why do posters try to deflect from the main issue? Disneydude?

    What does corporate welfare have to do with public sector unions? I'd say that's a strawman.
