I care enough to get rid of collective bargaining so our kids will have a future. Public unions are killing this country. I should have to pay for their future (pension), health care and fringe benefits while I try and make ends meet, add very little to my retirement and not be able to take a vacation because I can't afford it. Plus limit my doctor visits for annual check ups every two years. They want fairness and their rights to give themselves what ever they want. Well what about the taxpayer? What rights do I have to say NO! Enough is enough. We don't have that right in Wisconsin. Only forced. Wendy

Read the Budget Repair Bill, educate yourself, then post a comment. This is not just about teachers. Sounds as though you are a Belling/Limbaugh Mouthpiece. Get your own voice, which means you have to learn something first. Perhaps our Gov. should finish his education? No I'm not a teacher or a union member. I'm a citizen who cares about Wisconsin.

As a former teacher and non union member because I refused to join, the teachers that are moaning and groaning about having to pay a little more for things that cost me much much more in the private sector should thankful that they even have a job with anything near the benefits they are receiving.

In stead of expressing your frustrations at each other you would be surprised to find how much common ground you all have if you would debate these important issues with fact and civility. Do any of you realize how much corporate welfare costs this country? You owe it to yourselves to find out. Wouldn't it be nice to take money out of politics by simply publicly funding campaigns? No more"union" influence and no more "Koch" influence in our politics. It would end partisanship, cost less and we could end corporate welfare and direct those funds to our social programs. Here’s an excerpt from Edward Bernays, the founder of the modern propaganda industry, describing the process: Those who manipulate the unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government. We are governed, our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of ... in almost every act of our lives whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.[1] We make change one light bulb moment at a time .By the way. The average taxpayer pays approximately 3000 a year to support corporate welfare. Reports I have sampled average close to 50% of US corporations paying no income tax to the US. Keep your eyes on the ball.
