I don't think Wisconsin will be an issue in 2012. Maybe in Wisconsin. And Berkely.
Congress and Ozomba will be, like this year.

What about Detroit firing 1/2 of ALL the teachers and closing 1/2 of the schools?

Will you go and protest the DEMOCRATS who decided to do that?
Where was Ozomba?

They have to live within their means like everyone else. Wisconsin has a $3.6 billion hole, they can't print money. The cause of lower credit rating is too much debt, the municipalities need to tighten their belts.

I find the Dems position on this fascinating when compared to the health care debate. They recognize their is an issue with health care and their response is radical change. Yet with education where we have the exact same set of problems. We spend more than the rest of the world and we have poor outcomes, their response is protect the status quo and throw more money at the existing structure. Such an interesting pathology.

They want everything.

People need to fight because these cockroaches will not let you have your rights if you don't fight for them.

I doubt they see it that way. The Republicans are standing up to the union's fleecing of the middle class.

What types of "local spending" caused too much debt?
