Is this going on in your state????

Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doing away with the collective bargaining for teacher's unions? The results are in. Some school districts went from a $400,000 deficit to a $1,300,000 surplus as a result. Why?

It seems that the insurance company that provided all the "so-called" benefits to the teachers, was an insurance company owned and operated by the teacher's union. Since they were guaranteed to get the insurance business from the teachers and the State had to pay for it, and not the teachers, they were increasing the annual costs every single year to become the most expensive insurance company in the state. Then the insurance company was donating millions and millions of dollars to their favorite politicians, who when they got elected, guaranteed to keep backing the unions.

Nice racket, and this is the racket that is going on in every single State that allows collective bargaining. No wonder the States are taking it away. Now the State of Wisconsin is free to put the insurance contract out for bid, and lo and behold, they have saved so much money it has turned deficits into surplus amounts. As a result, none of the teachers had to be laid off, there's more money for educating the children, and the taxpayers of Wisconsin don't have to pay more taxes to fund the union's political ambitions, oh, and the teachers can have direct dialog with school officials rather than having to go through the union. Gee... sounds like a win for the teachers, taxpayers and children, and a loss for the crooked Wisconsin Education Association and politicians. Go little guy!!!

Here is the article:


You will also notice that none and I mean none of the major media outlets covered this story.  Wonder why??


To be honest, I don't wonder why, I'm asking myself why not..

I hope it's not going on in my state. I am just so frustrated with politics right now. It seems like all politicians are just egotistical crazy people.

These are so-called benefits. Anyone who believes this stuff from politicians is crazy.

I agree Politicans just throw out this garbage and many people still believe it, even today. It is absolutely crazy!
