Why should the public employees be allowed to bargain collectively...FDR (he fathered the modern day union) was against collective bargaining by public employees...its just not a good situation.<quoted text>
the other point you keep failing to mention is that those "benefits" the teachers get, like health care, are all figured into their salaries. Private sector teachers also get health care coverage and make HIGHER salaries than the public school teachers. There is NO finacial crisis in WI other than the one created by Walker by lowering taxes on those who don't pay much anyway (yet are the only ones who can afford it) and paying for those tax cuts by taking the money directly out of the pockets of the middle class public employees. He created this mess in the 6 short weeks he has been in office, very mush so gauranteeing that he will only have 46 weeks left before the first recall suit is filed. Mr Walker, meet Gray Davis.
And...please speak facts, and not hearsay...Walker has not cut the corporate income tax rate...he pledge to cut the personal and corporate tax rate, but it hasn't happened. Read the whole story and stop embellishing to push your agenda...

Walker promises to lower income taxes
MADISON, Wis.— Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he wants to lower personal and corporate income taxes in his first term, but it won’t happen in his first two-year budget.
Walker must balance a $3 billion shortfall in that budget he likely will release in February.
Walker said Wednesday that unlike Illinois, which is raising taxes, he is committed to lowering taxes over the next four years. He’s already proposed eliminating taxes for two years on businesses that come to the state.
Another Walker proposal would cut taxes for businesses with less than $500,000 in gross receipts.
Walker says he is open to changing that to a $2,500 tax credit for every new job created by any business as the co-chair of the Legislature’s budget committee wants.
