Really buddy? That is some intelligent discussion there. It completely ignored his comment. I am actually from WI and a card carrying Republican. I collected recall signatures mostly from Republicans. Don't let the media and the author of this dumb article fool you. Walker did not ask for a modest increase. It was a 12% increase even though the union workers had agreed to cuts for 10 years in a row. Walker has been caught in so many lies that even people who agree with him, do not trust him. The guy even tried to sell our utilities to the highest bidder with no oversight. The 3 school districts near me are facing closing. 25,000 of our teachers have lost their job and are now collecting unemployment instead of paying taxes.
