Try again Meya, what I stated was that public union membership has fallen in this state in the last year, as a direct benefit from ACT 10. If those unions were doing such a great job or representing their "members", then why the decline in membership? Simple, once the union shackles were removed and they weren't FORCED to be in a union, the people spoke, and they spoke by LEAVING THE UNION. Doesn't speak too highly of "brotherhood" now does it?

Taxes are supposed to go for things like the good roads. I don't work as many hours as I do just so some coffee drinking union hack can have lavish benefits and retire at 55. I don't work as many hours as I do so some freeloading ne'er-do-well too lazy to get a job can get a free ride at our expense because they think they're entitled to a lifestyle of leeching off society. I don't, however, mind my taxes going to promote business and establish an atmosphere where owners WANT TO MOVE TO WISCONSIN. Those dollars result in people growing their companies, hiring people, and create a better economy for ALL OF US, not just a select few union members.

Just remember what FDR said about public unions....
"The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service...."

He understood this and so does Scott Walker.
