    He's targetting the exact money that is threatening to bankrupt the state.

    He is targeting the unions in a power struggle, and using the budget imbalance as an excuse.

    And God bless him.

    He understands that unions have been the primary reason for our nation's economic decline and the need to send jobs overseas.

    I work with unions. They're impossible.

    My comments were based upon the contributions given to the candidates, but you already knew that. I think we will see who gets the most votes after January (Walker's one year in office) next year. Walker never campaigned on the issue of eliminating collective bargaining by the public unions. I think I know why.

    Yeah, and Walker talked for 20 minutes on the phone with a person he thought was David Koch.

    Wisconsin voters split on governor's union plan: poll | Reuters
    Wisconsin voters are split evenly in their views of Republican Walker's proposal and of the protesters demonstrating against his plans, said the poll sponsored by WisconsinReporter.com, a news organization operated by the nonprofit Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity based in Alexandria, Virginia.

    Half of the 500 people polled had a favorable view of Walker's proposal, and half had an unfavorable view, it found.
    (Reuters) - A majority of Wisconsin voters think Gov. Scott Walker's bid to make public sector union members pay more for benefits is fair but also believe those workers should have collective bargaining rights, according to a poll released on Thursday.

    and a majority of Wisconsin voters is correct. I wonder if they will stick with their recall efforts? Let's hope so.
