Dont think its out of line to have pay a larger portion of your health ins. and ret. fund


Knowing that the State Patrol and fire fighters unions who supported Walker during his campaign are now exempt from Walker's budget bill cutting the right to collective bargaining leads me to believe that this is more about who - unions or corporations- will be running our government than about paying for helathcare and retirement benefits. I think our governor and his party would like us all to believe that the only issue here involves contributing toward healthcare costs and retirement benefits but we need to be aware of the big picture. The Republican party began setting the stage for this a few months back when they erased the cap of how much money corporations were allowed to contribute to a campaign fund.

Ridge, I look at it as both political and doing what is right.  There are definitely alot of politics on both sides of this issue, likely more than we will ever know.  I honestly believe Walkers proposal is "modest" and good for the citizens of Wisconsin in the long run.

I don"t think it has much to do about taxes,health ins. or retirement. Its nothing but a political power ploy. Dems(unions) vs Reps(non unions)  Wisconsonites are stuck in the middle    Yell When will they do whats best for the guy stuck in the middle.  YellYellYell

Completely agree T.I.  It is interesting to watch all this playout in front of us.  Living in the Green Bay area, I would like to know what is required to begin a recall vote on Dave Hansen.  If this nonsense goes on too much longer I would like to see it happen.
