    You don't get it and never will because you are blinded about an ideology. There is absolutely nothing that would prevent Obama from submitting a law giving the Federal Employee Unions the same rights as Wisconsin but he hasn't done that. Wonder why? Where is your outrage over how Federal Employees are being treated?

    Why is it that you people are perfectly fine with corporations having unlimted access to politicians, yet you cannot stand for the public worker to have a say in negotiating their employment contracts.

    When did our American values become so perverted?

    Okay, DisneyDude, prove us all wrong. Post a link that says that Federal employees are allowed to collectively bargain their wages and benefits.

    No, Obama inserted himself into the debate and got this response from Walker. It may also clear up your misconceptions about what the Governor has proposed and how that is better than Federal union employees have. Where is your outrage?

    Wisconsin voters express buyers remorse

    "(Reuters) - Wisconsin voters would narrowly favor Governor Scott Walker's Democratic opponent if the November, 2010 election were repeated, according to partial poll results released on Monday.

    Walker has stirred national debate and the largest demonstrations in Wisconsin since the Vietnam War with his proposal to strip public sector unions of most collective bargaining rights.

    Walker won the November 2, 2010 election 52 to 46 percent for Democrat Tom Barrett, with the remainder of the vote to minor candidates.

    Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, North Carolina said a new poll showed if the election were replayed now, the result would be almost exactly flipped, with Democrat Tom Barrett getting 52 percent and Walker 45 percent, with four percent not sure.

    The shift in voter sentiment away from Walker was attributed to households with at least one union member, the polling group said. More details of the poll will be released on Tuesday.

    The poll surveyed 768 Wisconsin voters from February 24 to 27. Those surveyed were also asked how they voted in the November election and 47 percent said for Walker and 47 percent for Barrett."

    You donít have to worry about my outrage, its intact and directed at Governor Tinpot Scott for ginning up a phony State Budget crisis, while pushing thru $ 140 MILLION in Corporate Welfare. Then expecting state employees to take a haircut to pay for it.

    many do. working folks is often a misnomer. working people is union slang for union workers. the people who run small businesses or wall street law associates or medical residents work hours that would kill most union "workers".
