Congratulations Governor Scott Walker and the state of Wisconsin for standing up to the unions and showing them that fiscal responsibility for a state is more important than unrealistic pensions and zealous collective bargaining. 

Why it is that these unions somehow feel they deserve such a break at the expense of taxpayers is something I cannot understand. I pay into my 401k and sacrifice a big chunk of money each paycheck for my health care and I have no collective bargaining rights. I don't want any collective bargaining rights and I certainly don't want to be dead weight for what could be a thriving state economy.

I don't know what percentage of Wisconsin workers are unionized but last night's vote proved once and for all that those who are not members of unions have no interest in paying for the needs of union member's as well as those of their own. Was that really even a question?

What did these unions expect? Wisconsin's budget is in the red, like most other states, tax dollars are being drained by pensions that should never have even been promised, and these unions attempt to recall their governor actually assuming that private sector workers who put into their own 401ks and do not receive pensions will actually vote to continue wasting their state's money on the union's interests and edge ever closer to falling off their statewide financial cliff. 

The unions just got put in their place last night and this message has the potential to reverberate across America all the way into the 2012 presidential election.

74.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day282.
