What’s happening in Wisconsin is the logical result of what happens when a political party is bought and paid for by the unions. The Democrats receive massive amounts of campaign cash from the unions and depend on that cash for re-election. The Democrats vote for massive, unsustainable salaries and benefits for the unions. The state cannot pay these obligations. The voters revolt, putting Republican reformers and tax-cutters in charge. The Democrats, beholden to the unions, attempt to obstruct the will of the people any way they can.
When the dust clears, those teachers and legislators who walked away from their jobs, some falsely taking taxpayer-funded sick days, ought to, at a minimum, reimburse the state for the cost of their truancy. Anywhere else, such fraud would be grounds for dismissal.
