    Even union members are sick of being taxed for their benefits.

    I agree, but why would union members vote against their own interests?

    It's weird, but I can't find an explanation anywhere for it.

    Is it really in their best interest to allow the politicians to continue make promises that can't be kept?

    The taxpayers can't afford to pay these incredible salaries and pensions, unless common sense and reason are introduced, their system will collapse.

    Actually, Chris Matthews talked about this on his show today and asked a guest the exact same question, and his guest said the answer lies in the difference between public and private unions. Private unions have a different set of priorities than the public unions do, so one can assume that many of those union households who supported Walker were private unions, since the exit poll made no distinction.

    Approximately 113,000 Wisconsinites are the dumbest people on earth.
    Sometimes people need to be beaten over the head multiple times. Somedays they will stop being so gullible.

    Typical labor union tactic, beating people to get them to vote the way you think they should.

    Was referring to more economic collapses. In case you don't know Walker has the worst job creation in the nation. Wasn't this what he ran on? The guy is a crook. Just your kind of candidate though right? Whats a little corruption. disgusting.
