    Listening to WTMJ Milwaukee–The Walker Revolution:) 

    Live here. Radio Free Wisconsin vs. the people’s republic of Madison.

    Teachers ditch classes and encourage their students to skip school. Holding kids and working parents hostage. Classic union irresponsibility which has driven states and localities into bankruptcy. Public servants are our masters, but Wisconsin’s new Republican governor Scott Walker is pointing out some home truths and, with a newly elected Republican majority in both legislatures, reflecting the will of we the people:

    The protesters are taking issue with Walker’s budget repair plan, which he presented last week. The governor said besides removing workers’ collective bargaining rights, except when negotiating salary, state employees need to pay more for health care benefits and their pensions. Local firefighters, such as local police and members of the Wisconsin State Patrol, are exempt in the bill.

    The governor said that the moves are necessary to better contend with the state’s fiscal problems and he can’t negotiate with the unions since the state has nothing to offer. The bill’s supporters said public workers must make sacrifices to help balance the state’s budget. The state has a projected $3.6 billion budget shortfall.

    It’s the only thing to do. What future will these kids have if they have to pay for people who retire early with cushy salaries and benefits. Wisconsin is trying to fend off the death spiral that Illinois is embracing.

      I am watching about this on the news now. It really gets my goat that the teachers brought the kids with them. They are striking illegally. Good lesson to the teach the kids. They interviewed these kids and they don’t even know why they are there. As a parent, I would be furious to find out that my child was asked to attend this, and I would be at the school board in record time.

      Yes. It’s really, really wrong. But of course, they think they are entitled. They think they own these kids.

      I see that protesters are being bussed in. These are the same goons who call TEA people “astroturf”. And I agree with JaC, if it were my kids made to go to that protest, I’d be raising hell.

      I saw on a tweet some are being bused in from other parts of the country too.

      But, most hilarious–the Senate Dems ran away to Illinois to thwart a quorum–and the Illinois Tea Party chased em back!!

      Those teachers ought to be ashamed of themselves. But I guess it’s not really for the children after all.

      My link above on Big Unions is basically a round-up of the WI stuff but Instapundit just now linked to an article saying obama’s Organizing for America is supporting these union-riot-thugfests. What a douche.
