    Right, we wouldn't want private business to go into Wisconsin. Prove that the Wisconsin budget crisis is phony?

    When did our American values become so perverted?
    what part of the constitution empowers the federal government to have the authority to tell private entities how tospend their money

    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."

There are a few, for example, air traffic controllers, who had their rights signed away by Ronald Reagan.

    As for your second point, public employees unions are not operated with tax dollars. They are operated by money paid into it by their members. So by your rationale, public employees shouldn't be able to spend their money on their own choosing because they are paid with by tax dollars, right? That's silly circular reasoning.

    Its a sad day in America when multi-billion dollar corporations can buy a politician and the average worker has his/her voice to negotiate in their own salary contract usurped by the government. And you people wonder why we question your perverted values.
    why do the lefties have such a fixation with fox news

    I do lots of labor law and the amount of clueless crap I see on the forum-especially from the left-is hilarious.

    the fact is public sector unions are bargaining with people who do NOT have the best interests of the taxpayers in mind

    Whatever happened to UFO -CIA???
    "The emergence of open class conflict is exposing myths propagated by the political establishment. Among these is the supposed mass support for the “Tea Party.” Largely a media creation, fueled by millions of dollars from corporate billionaires, the Tea Party backers of Governor Walker could muster no more than a small crowd of demoralized supporters in Madison Saturday."

    "Not only do the Democrats support the destruction of the living conditions of the working class, they also have no more interest in the democratic rights of workers than the Republicans. Their aim is not to defend the right of workers to organize and fight against the corporations; but to maintain a union apparatus that has proven to be a crucial instrument in suppressing working class struggles and enforcing cuts. Indeed, Democratic governors in states like New York and California are relying on the unions precisely for this purpose."
