Response to The joke is those who belittle the entire teaching profession.
Another asinine post....
This entire issue is about the teachers UNIONS.
The tax payers are the one's paying the salaries, retirement, medical, etc. for the people you see screaming in Wisconsin. These people were asked to pay just a small portion of these expenses themselves which still would have left them leaps and bounds above those in the private sector and now that it has passed, it STILL leaves them well above their counter parts in the private sector.
There are a lot of people out of work today for obvious reasons. States are having to tighten their belts along with most of the citizens and you expect for the teachers and their unions not to share in the belt tightening? Just because they work for the government doesn't make them or put them in a bracket that makes them any better than anyone in the private sector.
Your retort to the issue is the joke and the only avenue you have to try and derail the inevitable.
