Estase just read that the recall election against Wisconsin Governor Scott Brown is costing the Cheeseheads nearly eight million Dollars. A vendetta waged against anyone whose judgement counters the public employees' unions. At least Wisconsin, unlike the People's Republic of Illinois, has politicians who can stand up to greedy public employees. Illinois has been broken by the fact that it has to pay two or three pensions to some retired teachers. No state can afford to pay one retired employee more than one pension, and it is immoral to expect the public to pay one person more than one pension. Ask a military retiree whether anyone seems interested in paying for their healthcare, and then look at a schoolteacher living like a crowned head of Europe.
