    public employees will be losing anywhere from 400-600 bucks a month. That's a bunch of bullsh!t. You gonna tell me that teachers and nurses, and child care workers for the state deserve to lose 400-600 bucks a month?

    Comp is an agreement between an indivual and an employer. If the individual doesn't like the offer they can go find something else to do. Noone is forcing them to accept comp that they think is not appropriate.

    Public employees have been feeding off the trough for too long.

    If they don't like it there are plenty of unemployed people willing to take their spot.

    But 40 million otherwise uninsured people will now have insurance. It's the greater good. They should accept their sacrifice and bow at the altar of Obamacare.

    No Wis. union vote as Democrats leave state - U.S. news - Life - msnbc.com

    Typical. You know, if I decided to leave work and hide until I got my way, I'd be immediately canned. Why doesn't the same apply to these cowards?

    Ole Barry put his foot in it again by characterizing this as an effort to bash the unions. What a liberal tool.
