wrong. Wrong. WRONG!

I am tired of news outlets perpetuating this lie. They can still bargain for their salaries under this bill. Benefits are taken out.

He can't make up his mind which side he is on when it's a matter of protests against Ahmadinejad or Mubarak, but he knows instantly which side he's on if the enemy is a Republican politician.

The relationship between the unions and the Democratic Party would be considered corruption if it was done in secret--the unions help the Democrats win elections and the Democrats reward them with gobs of the taxpayers' money--but because it is done openly it is considered "business as usual."

We caught them being bussed into Jackson Michigan during the health care fight when we protested outside my former congressman’s office.

I’m just real glad we elected a secretary of state who has a taste for marxist blood.

"Study Shows, Even After Limits, Public Employee Benefits Would Be Extremely Generous"

MacIver News Service | February 16, 2011

"Currently, Wisconsin state employees pay less than 5 percent of the premium cost for family coverage (4.35 percent for union employees and 4.96 percent for non‐union employees). That’s lower than the 6.2 percent they paid in 2009, when Wisconsin’s employee contribution was the second‐lowest among Midwest states for family coverage.

Republican Governor Scott Walker has proposed raising the employee share of health insurance premiums to 12.4 percent, however even after the additional contribution, the contribution rate would still be less than the 2009 Midwest average for state government employees.

Moreover, the new rate would also be less than the employee contributions required at 85 percent of large Milwaukee‐area employers.

The proposed changes would cost the average state employee an additional $1,560 per year for family coverage, but the amount they would pay ($2,496) would still be significantly less than the $3,875 average premium contribution at large private‐sector employers in southeastern Wisconsin.

“State employees will also continue to get much more for their money than their private sector counterparts,” the study reads. “The state plan offers more benefits, lower deductibles, co-pays and out of pocket maximums than the average private sector plan.”

You could tell by the free t-shirts and hats (all red) that it was an astroturf crowd.

That, and the professionally printed signs, all alike.

They probably got a free bus ride, a box lunch, and $20 cash to go there.

I could be wrong here, but it's possible that the muslim subhumans that the POTUS went to Cairo to encourage to overthrow a US ally were outraged and encouraged by Barry Soetero the Indonesian, just like he fomented the overthrow of the Kenyan Government in 2006.

Its painfully obvious to any objective observer that the communist in the White House is hardly an American.

This is a guy who said the US is comprised of 57 states, who's father, stepfather, and brothers are all muhammadans, and is in league with fellow marxists, sex perverts, domestic terrorists, and thieves.

IT IS AN INDICTMENT ON THE USA THAT THIS MUSLIM COMMUNIST SERVES AS POTUS.

In more civilized times, like in 1787, this shifty son of a whore and his comrades would be run out of town on a rail.

An electorate that puts Clinton in the WH twice, gives the insane al gore the popular vote, elects a not natural born muslim communist POTUS at least once, and then elects bushes three times and Reagan twice is an electorate that is mentally retarded.

The Republic is in great jeopardy AND IS IN DECLINE.

DRASTIC MEASURES ARE IN ORDER.

If he thinks people hate him now, wait until he and his comrades try to steal the WH in 2012.

This is going to be a SERIOUS fight.

The GOP may not survive if MYTH ROMNEY or some other crook gets the nomination, and for sure the unions will be going for broke to put more marxists in office, especially Hussein.

The next GOP POTUS needs to declare a Zero tolerance policy for marxists in US government.

Investigate and arrest members of the “Congressional Progressive Caucus”and Declare all States "Right to Work" states, no more forced compulsory union dues in order to keep your job.

Defund the marxist trade and government worker unions.

No one will pay union dues voluntarily.

Let the union workers give themselves a raise by not having to pay any more dues.

The next POTUS must cripple the corrupt and degenerate marxist public and private sector unions by declaring all States of this union to be "Right to Work States"
