  •  The GOP (11+ / 0-)

    wants to eliminate the middle class. If you eliminate the middle class and it's aggregate purchasing power, you risk having the economy go into a tailspin.  Workers who don't have disposable income or any income for that matter, will cut back on what they spend.  That has a domino effect.  Stores cut back on inventory, etc.  

    But then the GOP does not care.  They don't care about anyone but the super wealthy and their tea party overlords.  

    Keep up the fight Wisconsin.  This is the first battle of the larger war on unions.
