Apparently, they do think that.

I'm wondering, too... all the union contracts loaded with salary increases and benefits cost increases the WI public unions and their lackey elected officials are slamming before the WI law takes effect... where will the money come from to PAY for them?

I would really like an answer.

Wisconsin Poll: Republican Enthusiasm Gap Vanishes

Only your head will they vote these Dems out..

Do you know why only 3 are being targeted? That's the only ones the GOP has a outside chance at.



A poll from Huff-n-Puff??

LOL!
Seriously!

Didn't they poll/predict the Progressives would win by a landslide on Nov. 2nd, 2010? Hhahahahahahaha! HuffPo

And exactly how many senior citizens, and those who lost jobs in this unending economic collapse, will have to sell their homes at huge losses as property taxes continue to skyrocket? All so that masses of "public servants" can retire before age 50 with pensions larger than the average working person earns from working full time?

See, that's why Walker, through the bill just passed, has given local governments the tools and ability to deal with the unions in a fair manner, by trying to protect the taxpayer.

Now those local officials are not bound in the straightjacket the unions have put them in the past.

Now these officials can demand union members pay a fair amount FOR THEIR OWN hc and pensions.

Right on schedule. Winger chimes in to slam the poll which if he had read the link would show it was conducted by a Conservative Wisconsin think tank.

They have the reading skills of 2nd grader.

Seems they can't find many voters that think of Kindergarten teachers as thugs.
Fortunately it only takes one, baby!

That is for the WI voters to decide, not the GOP.
