There was nothing to find, as Walker told the fake Koch, he and his inner circle were about to drop "the bomb", with the Budget proposal.

I agree. Put on your man pants, pay your taxes, and make the generation that caused this budget deficit make the sacrifices. Not the children, they shouldn't pay for it now or later.

Elimination is a lot more extensive than changes. That statement certainly does not indicate his intention to gut the only remaining powers of the Unions. What part of that highlighted would imply elimination?

Which begs the question... why are lefties/libs claiming they knew nothing about this? Are they just uninformed in general, or what?

Let's recap. Read my prior post:

What about that do you not get?

Thanks...

A quick set of word searches show that collective bargaining is mentioned exactly nowhere in his platform.

So... I am even more confused by your earlier post.

What is the "exactly that" you were referring to when asserted that "his platform... said exactly that?"

Because it does not appear to be that he was going to eliminate collective bargaining.
