I wonder what would happen if we gave our military members power to strike or to form unions? They don't have this right and it should be obvious to all of us why this is the case.

The power of non-government unions has diminished greatly as thousands of jobs have been lost because private companies can't really deliver all the demands of unions without a cost. If all else fails, companies will simply outsource to foreign countries. Bottom line is jobs get cut because of excessive union demands.

Government unions don't have the same economic pressures because the economic burden falls on the taxpayers to make up the difference. This is not right. Bills advancing in Wisconsin are moving in the right direction and are only a small portion of what needs to happen to get our country on the right financial track. Thousands of workers in the private sector have lost their jobs and companies have had to tighten their belts or they will close their doors forever. We should expect our government to do the same but they have utterly failed so far.

This article shows how the left "spins" things. Definition of Spin: to white wash a lie so that it appears pallatable; to make wrong look right; to make bad look good; in other words, to deceive. This is the agenda of left.
