    Here is a link to a fair and balanced assessment of the current Wisconsin Legislation about their budget situation and the legislation proposed by the Governor. Both sides will find points to agree with and points to disagree with.

    It is from the AP and is titled "Facts overshadowed in debate over union bill"

    Every time a Republican Governor goes to the mat and fights for budget cuts and a balanced budget...10 years later, a special-interest Democrat puts the state right back in the shithole.


    Walker is trying to change the equation. He's telling the gov. employees it's either this, or lay off 6,000 people. Looks to me like it's just setting the stage for him to fire a bunch of people.


    The Union doesn't care about those people losing their jobs. They figure a Democrat will hire them right back in 10 years...at full benefits. They're willing to temporarily can some people, to retain their power.
