“The reforms contained in Act 10 were vital in helping to eliminate the state’s $3.6 billion deficit without raising taxes on families and small businesses.” Ummm, I believe that Walker already has testified before congress, under oath, that this is not quite true…

it’s pathetic that people thumbs down the truth Alice. It goes to show what uneducated people believe and will do for a buck.

I watched the video, and union busting wasn’t mentioned in it once.

Name calling Alice? So you…see things haven’t changed. Try to stay on subject. Act 10 IS WORKING!

If unions are as gret as you seem tothink, wouldn’t workers vote to remain union members? Why not let workers decide?

“…our touchy, oh so smart progressives…we have an emperor in the WH…” Would you consider THAT name calling wally? YOU said it this week. ACT 10 IS NOT WORKING! Walker said himself, under oath, that it really would not affect Wisconsins deficit. I believe this IS on subject.

Wally, your comment that ACT 10 is working, might be the most ignorant comment you’ve ever made.

Derks, I offer a balancd budget without huge tax increases as evidence that Act 10 is working. What evidence do you have that it is NOT working?

Don’t even try. They aren’t happy unless there are government hand outs on every corner. Its all about the “rich”…what a joke. I laugh at comments by derks because obviously, they haven’t talked to any school administrators that were able to lower health insurance for their staff because they weren’t shackled by the unions…that care about the kids! Oh man, I can’t even type that without laughing.
C’mon Alice…those unions are all about taking care of the middle class…smh
Gotta love the fact that Wisconsin has a budget SURPLUS while the folks in Minnesota are getting ready to pay a tax on everything but the air they breath.

I’ve been reading this blog for quite some time. Not really one to comment on things but I thought this was worth sharing. Too bad Alice just can’t get it. Remember when you read this Alice, a non-partisan fiscal bureau came up with these numbers so don’t try to twist it to your benefit. Have a good weekend people.

Sooooo – Farmer Joe really isn’t really one to comment on things, but he has time to come on here and slam me! Act 10 IS NOT working, it has had nothing to do with bringing the deficit down.

NIce. I’ve read plenty of your posts to know how you operate. The truth has no agenda.

BTW Alice, you really need to research Act 10. Unlike the way you union folks like it…this ISN’T all about YOU. Its about corrections to the budget that HAD DO BE MADE to balance it…now we have a surplus. Do your homework.

I find it truly amazing that so many self-righteous folk are willing to believe that anyone working in the public sector is their enemy because little lord walker decreed it to be. I guess I really shouldn’t find it amazing as there is still support for the tea partiers, the birthers and sarah palin (I understand her contract with foxnews was not renewed…so sad) No, this isn’t all about me wally – never has been. It’s about everyone sacrificing equally, not just the scapegoats his honor points the finger at.

Who said public sector employees are the enemy? NO ONE. You did and much like your liberal media brethren, you decide to interpret what everyone says as being “against” you or, in dear leaders useless, “racist”. Stay on topic.
I have family members that work in the public sector…guess what? They are making MORE money because they don’t have to feed the belly of the beast called UNION and their insurance costs have gone DOWN without being told what is good for them…they have choices now. Why do you hate making decisions yourself?
For a progressive, you sure are quick to judge others based on your own interpretation of written words. I thought all you progressives were for the good of all? Isn’t it good that public employees are making more now? Is is not good that we have a budget surplus in the state? Look at whats happening in states with “progressives” governors…Of course, I don’t expect you to, because much like the media, you only believe what you’re told to believe. Kinda sad really.
