    For those in Wisconsin, losing is not an option.  Meathead Walker is holding back his complete budget proposal until this bill is passed for a reason.  He says the collective bargaining elimination is needed to give school districts and local government "flexibility" to deal with the budget cuts in his budget when he introduces it.  And even though the unions say they will agree to the financial concessions in this "emergency" bill, he won't compromise and leave collective bargaining in place.  That tells you how bad it will be.  I hope those Senators stick to their guns and stay out all spring if they have to, and I hope the protestors keep showing up until the legislature grinds to a halt.

    And you are right - the other R states are next if they get their way in Wisconsin.
